As a provocative tale of passion and complacency, ideals and self-delusions, Madame Bovary (1857) remains a milestone in European fiction. In telling his story of Emma Bovary—a farmer's daughter who, with girlhood dreams fuelled by sensational novels, marries a provincial doctor—Flaubert inaugurated a literary mode that would be called Realism. But so exacting were Flaubert's standards of authenticity that his portrayal of the breakdown of Emma's marriage, and the frankness with which he treats her adulterous liaisons, scandalized many of his contemporaries. Yet to others, the mix of painful introspection, emotional blindness, and cynical self-seeking that distinguishes his characters made the novel instantly recognizable as a work of genius. It is a novel fixed upon the idea of romance—of the need for Romance—in the face of day-to-day banalities. It is a theme that is ironic insofar as the exquisite clarity of Flaubert's prose serves to hauntingly underline the futility of the heroine's ultimate tragedy.

Madame Bovary tells the tragic story of the romantic but empty-headed Emma Rouault. When Emma marries Charles Bovary, she imagines she will pass into the life of luxury and passion that she reads about in sentimental novels and women's magazines. But Charles is an ordinary country doctor, and provincial life is very different from the romantic excitement for which she yearns. In her quest to realize her dreams she takes a lover, Rodolphe, and begins a devastating spiral into deceit and despair. And Flaubert captures every step of this catastrophe with sharp-eyed detail and a wonderfully subtle understanding of human emotions.(Feedbooks.com)

Unabridged (100% Original content) Font adjustments & biography included Illustrated About Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert Madame Bovary (1856) is the French writer Gustave Flaubert's debut novel. The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns. Flaubert was a notorious perfectionist and claimed always to be searching for le mot juste ("the precise word"). When the novel was first serialized in La Revue de Paris between 1 October 1856 and 15 December 1856, public prosecutors attacked the novel for obscenity. The resulting trial in January 1857 made the story notorious. After Flaubert's acquittal on 7 February 1857, Madame Bovary became a bestseller in April 1857 when it was published as a single volume. The novel is now considered Flaubert's masterpiece, as well as a seminal work of literary realism and one of the most influential novels. British critic James Wood writes in How Fiction Works: "Flaubert established for good or ill, what most readers think of as modern realist narration and his influence is almost too familiar to be visible".

Die Hauptperson des Romans ist Emma, die nach dem Tod der Mutter allein mit ihrem Vater auf dessen Hof lebt. Sie heiratet den Landarzt Charles Bovary, der die schöne Frau verehrt. Sie verspricht sich von der Heirat ein gesellschaftlich aufregenderes Leben und ist bald von dem Dorfalltag und ihrem recht einfach strukturierten Mann gelangweilt. Die Sorge um ihren sich verschlechternden Gesundheitszustand und ihre Klagen über ihren Wohnort veranlassen Charles, in eine andere Ortschaft umzuziehen; er nimmt an, dass seiner Frau eine Luftveränderung gut tun würde. In Yonville angekommen, freunden sich beide schnell mit dem Apotheker Homais und dessen Familie an. In Homais' Haus lebt auch der Kanzlist Léon, mit dem Emma eine Art Seelenverwandtschaft entdeckt. Gustave Flaubert (1821 - 1880) war ein französischer Schriftsteller, der vor allem als Romancier bekannt ist. Er gilt als einer der besten Stilisten der französischen Literatur und als ein Klassiker des Romans. Zusammen mit Stendhal und Balzac bildet er das Dreigestirn der großen realistischen Erzähler Frankreichs.
