Description


Considered a founding work of Realism, Flaubert's masterpiece uses the character of Emma Rouault to question and lay bare bourgeois customs and morality. Through the archetypal character of Madame Bovary, the frustrations of a woman leading a dreary and rustic life in the provinces and the lengths to which she will go to escape her mundane existence are artfully and unflinchingly described. A present-day classic, the novel caused a stir when first published and was attacked for obscenity by public prosecutors.

Considerada una obra fundadora del realismo literario, la obra maestra de Flaubert usa el personaje de Emma Rouault para cuestionar y poner en evidencia las costumbres y la moral burguesa. Mediante el personaje arquetipico de Madame Bovary, las frustraciones de una mujer viviendo una cotidianidad mezquina y rustica en las provincias y las cosas que es capaz de hacer para escapar su existencia prosaica se describen ingeniosamente e impavidamente. Un clasico hoy en dia, la novela causo escandalo cuando se publico por primera vez y fue enjuiciada por obscenidad.
