Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert & Lydia Davis Book Summary

For daring to peer into the heart of an adulteress and enumerate its contents with profound dispassion, the author of Madame Bovary was tried for "offenses against morality and religion." What shocks us today about Flaubert's devastatingly realized tale of a young woman destroyed by the reckless pursuit of her romantic dreams is its pure artistry: the poise of its narrative structure, the opulence of its prose (marvelously captured in the English translation of Francis Steegmuller), and its creation of a world whose minor figures are as vital as its doomed heroine. In reading Madame Bovary, one experiences a work that remains genuinely revolutionary almost a century and a half after its creation.

Madame Bovary (Gustave Flaubert & Lydia Davis) Book Reviews

Ok but tough readingI like the beginning but I started to lose interest about after 1/4 of the way through..Score: 3/5

A fine translationMadame Bovary has a number of good translation, as well as a few that are less than special. With this book, it really does come down to the translation. Gustave Flaubert was such a perfectionist that he wrote only 25 words a day, The present translation is precise, but absorbing. I doubt you'll find a better translation out there..Score: 5/5
