Book Description:

A subject of scandal during its publication, the novel had to overcome the censorship by Napoleon III before it became the pioneer of literary realism. Emma Bovary represents the rebellion against the corset-like, bourgeoise society of nineteenth-century France and the profound dissatisfaction with life. Emma runs from her unhappy marriage, but as well from a world that isn't made how she prefers, and from a period that is not hers.

Author Biography
Flaubert, Gustave (Author)
Born in the town of Rouen, in northern France, in 1821, Gustave Flaubert was sent to study law in Paris at the age of 18. After only three years, his career was interrupted and he retired to live with his widowed mother in their family home at Croisset, on the banks of the Seine River. Supported by a private income, he devoted himself to his writing.

Flaubert traveled with writer Maxime du Camp from November 1849 to April 1851 to North Africa, Syria, Turkey, Greece, and Italy. When he returned he began Madame Bovary, which appeared first in the Revue in 1856 and in book form the next year. The realistic depiction of adultery was condemned as immoral and Flaubert was prosecuted, but escaped conviction.

Other major works include Salammbo (1862), Sentimental Education (1869), and The Temptation of Saint Antony (1874). His long novel Bouvard et Pecuchet was unfinished at his death in 1880. After his death, Flaubert's fame and reputation grew steadily, strengthened by the publication of his unfinished novel in 1881 and the many volumes of his correspondence.
