A Reader's Guide to Gustave Flaubert & 'Madame Bovary'
- Customer Reviews (0)
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!
Join Susannah Fullerton in examining this extraordinary novel for yourself – adultery, tragedy, financial ruin, heartbreak, comedy and acute understanding of human nature – this book has them all. This 22 page monograph includes a companion list of books for further reading. Just perfect for discussions and book clubs!
