Emma Bovary pays a hideous price for her doomed yearnings for unbridled passion and escape from her dreary husband, but the novel is as much a portrait of a provincial doctor's life in nineteenth-century France: the operation on Hippolyte's club foot that ends in gangrene; the blind beggar's red flesh caught by the coachman's whip; the ugly gossip; little Berthe Bovary ending up as a cotton worker… Juliet Stevenson makes us feel Flaubert's sympathy for them all. --- Rachel Redford, The OldiePrésentation de l'éditeur :
In Madame Bovary, one of the great novels of nineteenth-century France, Flaubert draws a deeply-felt but sympathetic portrait of a woman who, having married a country doctor, finds herself unhappy in a rural, genteel existence and longs for love and excitement. Her aspirations and her desires lead her into a tragic downward spiral.
