Read ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Gustave Flaubert Gustave Flaubert Í 5 characters characters Madame Bovary Madame Bovary apparso a puntate sulla Revue de Paris nel 1856 e integralmente un anno dopo incontrò subito un grande successo di pubblico dovuto anche al cla del processo a cui il suo autore incriminato per oltraggio alla morale e alla religione fu sottoposto imponendosi. Before her marriage she had believed that what she was experiencing was love but since the happiness that should have resulted from that love had not come she thought she must have been mistaken And Emma tried to find out just what was meant in life by the words bliss passion and intoxication which had seemed so beautiful to her in books Mia Wasikowska plays Madame Bovary in the 2015 movieBefore she is Madame Bovary Emma is keeping house for her father on a remote farm I wonder what would have happened to her if Doctor Charles Bovary had not been summoned to set her father s broken leg It is inconceivable to think of her married to a farmer or a tradesman or being swept away by a travelling peddler She is beautiful enough to be a duchess or a maruise a pretty bobble for the dance floor or an elegant adornment for the dinner table and certainly the perfect fine drapery for a night at the theatre Charles just expects her to be a wife A woman to manage his household A woman to uplift him and give him confidence to keep trying to better himself He is successful in a dull and conservative way and whenever he tries to raise himself up further perhaps in an attempt to win the respect of his pretty wife he is met with utter failure There is nothing romantic about him He is steady and completely devoted to her Whenever he tries to express grand passions somehow these attempts lack the ability to ignite the flames of desire or evoke the effervescent emotions that her novels tell her are the indications of true love Her frustrations once contained in a heavy ball beneath her heart begin to unravel like many hissing snakes and her docile nature becomes viperous She no longer hid her scorn for anything or anyone and she would sometimes express singular opinions condemning what was generally approved and commending perverse or immoral things which made her husband stare at her wide eyed Other men desire her even Charles s father who is a retired army officer and a man of the world who will take any opportunity to pull her to him in a deserted hallway or tug her into a dark alcove for a reasonably platonic cuddle Men can sense her dissatisfaction behind the cute dimple of her smile and the twinkling stars in her eyes She is ripe for the plucking Being a man well experienced with the betraying beguilement of beauty I would like to think that I would be impervious to her charms I would only have to clutch the slenderness of my wallet to realize that a woman of her insatiable need for material things would only lead me to disaster and ruin Of course there is this And she was ravishing to look at a tear trembling in her eye like water from a rainstorm in the blue chalice of a flower Most men will meet many beautiful women in their lifetimes but of course the crux of the matter with a woman like Madame Bovary is knowing that with a little effort she can be yoursat least for a time Two men are led into catastrophic affairs with Emma These indiscretions prove even disastrous for her There are souls who endure endless torment They are driven now to dream not to take action to experience the purest passions then the most extreme joys and so they hurl themselves into every sort of fantasy every sort of folly Recklessness can prove too exhilarating even intoxicating but rarely does it lead to long term happiness The other problem that Madame Bovary has is a lack of funds Her husband makes a good living but he can not even begin to keep up with her need to possess fine things or to conduct a lifestyle better suited to an aristocratic pocketbook This is a theme of particular interest to Gustave Flaubert In fact he wrote a whole book called Dictionary of Accepted Ideas condemning the very worst detrimental aspects of having too much money and not enough curiosity What he despised really was a certain type of bourgeois attitude It included traits such as intellectual and spiritual superficiality raw ambition shallow culture a love of material things greed and above all a mindless parroting of sentiments and beliefs An immoral grubbing moneylender sinks his talons into Emma s soft pale skin like a blood sucking leech He takes advantage of her naivete concerning the truth worth of hard currency and plays upon her covetous nature for decadent things She is so close with an extended line of credit to living a life of frivolous fun buoyed by a series of passionate heart fluttering affairs that she can almost see it almost taste it and almost believe she can obtain the life she has only read about As Vladimir Nabokov says The ironic and the pathetic are beautifully intertwined Emma s mother in law believes the books she has been reading are the reason for the faults in her daughter in law s character Wouldn t one have the right to alert the police if despite this the bookseller persisted in his business as purveyor of poison I have to admit I laughed out loud As much as booksellers would like to claim to have diabolical control over readers we have to defer to the writers In fact Flaubert had to defend himself in court for charges of immorality regarding the publication of Madame Bovary Nothing drives book sales like a court of law trying to deem a book too scandalous for people to be trusted to read it To me this book encourages morality and fiscal responsibility I don t see how given the tragic nature of the book someone would read this book and want to emulate Madame Bovary However I do understand the feeling that some women have of being trapped in a cage even if it is a gilded one The responsibilities of life can make one feel the itch to be reckless unfettered and pine for romantic assignations that will awaken youthful desires Maybe this book is of a how to manual on how not to conduct oneself with torrid affairs and fiscal carelessness This novel is considered the first example of realistic fiction This translation is 311 pages long Flaubert had over 4500 pages of rough drafts that this relatively slender volume emerged from The lyrical nature of the writing attests to the stringent diligence that Flaubert insisted upon to craft each page of this novel I couldn t help of course but think of Anna Karenina as I read this book I read and reviewed Tolstoy s masterpiece earlier this year It is easy to condemn both of these women but who among us has not had destructive desires which we have either indulged in or at least coveted Both women are fully drawn characters completely exposed to our critical judging eye and at the end of the day deserving of our pity Either woman would have made a wonderful heroine for a Shakespearean drama I can hear the gasps from a 17th century audience If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit

Read ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Í Gustave Flaubert Gustave Flaubert Í 5 characters characters Madame Bovary Ondo Madame Bovary come ha scritto Vladimir Nabokov dal punto di vista stilistico eè prosa che fa ciò che si suppone faccia la poesia Senza Flaubert non ci sarebbe stato un Marcel Proust in Francia né un James Joyce in Irlanda In Russia Čechov non sarebbe stato Čecho. Henry James once said Madame Bovary has a perfection that not only stamps it but that makes it stand almost alone it holds itself with such a supreme unapproachable assurance as both excites and defies judgmentThat s right Defies judgment I don t know he looks kind of judgy to meUnfortunately I had to read a translation as my French is nowhere near good enough to read the original Though I am assured that the prose in the original French are amazing and inspiringI can certainly appreciate the characterization and story telling ability but I personally struggled with the story as I reconciled what Flaubert seemed to be saying about society women women who had affairs men and romanceNow I would like to take a moment to uote Manny s Review since he is the one who convinced me to read this book in the first placeFlaubert makes no obvious attempt to judge EmmaNo Flaubert doesn t break up his beautiful prose at any point with So whilst that is a very nice tree I would like to intrude and mention that Emma is like a total ho So now back to the treeI feel he doesn t do this because that would be superfluous In fact it seems to me that he doesn t stop judging through this entire book image error

Three and a half stars uprated to 5 stars because I can t get it out of my head 9 April 2012Not sure what to make of it The self obsessed Emma Bovary was obviously to me a side of Flaubert himself She feels that there is so much but her limited life fences her in and instead of drawing into herself seeing what she has to offer how to make the best of herself she wants happiness to come to her just as it does in the romance novels she and Flaubert readI understood that spiritual flailing around turning this way and that using looks to make up for depth using sex to pass for love and enjoying fooling those she lived with into believing what they saw was what they got We ve all been a bit shallow at times but to have made a whole career a whole life of it no But then Emma departs from the author and becomes entirely his creation She doesn t think forward thinks her beauty will solve all Thinks that those who say they love her don t mean they love having an affair having sex with her but that they love her deeply and for all time Not that she is capable of loving that way herself either so maybe she really didn t know what it meant Her idea of love is the bodice ripper secret affair always exciting happily ever after variety except her affairs die when the men are satiated with this demanding woman She can t even conceive of real life nurturing of her child or being supportive that s for fools like her husband She always thinks someone will be there to pamper her and indulge her and that there will never be any conseuences that the piper will not call round to be paid for his pretty tune Such a sad story so beautifully written and it deserves a far better review than these few lines but I felt like writing down my first reaction on finishing the book I don t want the emotions to wear off and have to analyse it critically it wasn t that sort of experience for me
