Madame bovary

  1. 1. MADAME BOVARY Gustave Flaubert
  2. 2. A Critical Analysis • Gustave Flaubert wrote "Madame Bovary" in 1856 year and called it one of his best works, as he mentioned in "Salammbo"(1863) and "L'educationsentimentale" ("Sentimental education" (1870). It is really so, we can say.
  3. 3. Life of the Author • Gustave Flaubert (December 12, 1821 – May 8, 1880) was an influential French writer who is counted among the greatest novelists in Western literature. He is known especially for his first published novel, Madame Bovary (1857), for hisCorrespondence, and for his scrupulous devotion to his art and style. The celebrated short story
  4. 4. Summary • "Madame Bovary" represents a story of a woman suffering from her character, from her sensibility. The story of Emma Bovary is mournful and moral; we can make many opinions about it. You can say that Emma Bovary ruined herself, her husband, her daughter Berthe and her father, pure Roualt, because of her great desire of splendor, comfort and amusements.
  5. 5. • But - from the other side, maybe, the cause is in the impossibility of her dreaming, in her passion, that couldn't find an application. How much suffered this brave little woman, how much grief, perturbations and horrid pain she survived! Sometimes, reading the novel, it seems to us that no one in the whole world suffered so much! But she was broken, too! What a foolish and unexpected end of her life was, the life of this charming woman that never had a real love and peace! Even dying, she suffered from the pain. But more - she made a lot of people suffer, too. • Emma couldn't bear this life, this pain and she committed suicide - she drank arsenic.

  8. 8. Criticism
  9. 9. Style • One of Flaubert’s most striking techniques, and one that is most often elaborated on, is the absence of his input within his work. He has, effectively, eliminated the narrator wherever possible. Instead of presenting the information to the reader with his own opinions, Flaubert chooses to tell the story through various characters’ points of view.
  10. 10. Genre • Realism Realism is the genre that tries to portray life, environment, and human behaviors exactly as they appear. Realist authors tried to display everyday life instead of demonstrating a contrived version of how life really is. During the mid 19th century until the early 20th century, realism began in various countries throughout Europe. Typically the stories and novels produced in Europe and the United States from 1840 to the 1890’s were fiction that would focus on describing the characters in major detail and concentrate on provincial and middle-class living. These authors would not put much thought into the plot in order to fully demonstrate real life as best as they could.
