Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It has a perfection that not only stamps it, but that makes it stand almost alone.”  —Henry James
 
Beautiful Emma Rouault yearns for the life of wealth, passion, and romance she has encountered in popular sentimental fiction, and when her doctor, the well-meaning but awkward and unremarkable Charles Bovary, begins to pay her attention, she imagines that she may be granted her wish. However, after their marriage, Emma soon becomes frustrated with the boredom of provincial life and finds herself seeking escape and contemplating adultery. As Emmas efforts to make a reality of her fantasies become more dangerous, both she and those around her must face the shattering consequences of her actions. Causing widespread scandal when it was published in 1857, Gustave Flauberts masterpiece is one of the landmark works of 19th-century realist fiction. This crisp new translation captures the psychological realism of the original and echoes the verbal precision for which Flaubert is rightly famed. This edition includes pictures and an extensive section about the author's life and works.
