Companion Guide – Gustave Flaubert & ‘Madame Bovary’

Gustave Flaubert Madam Bovar

Adultery is such a fabulous subject for a book – lies, deceit, punishment and betrayal can all follow in its wake. It was Gustave Flaubert who was the first to explore adultery from the point of view of female desire and sexuality. In doing so, he broke new ground.

Madame Bovary is one of the greatest psychological novels of literature, examining lust and longing, as well as the importance of dreams and what happens when they distort reality. This novel delves deep into the workings of the human mind. No-one should go through life without reading this masterpiece!
