    In Madame Bovary, one of the great novels of 19th-century France, Flaubert draws a deeply felt and sympathetic portrait of a woman who, having married a country doctor and found herself unhappy with a rural, genteel existence, longs for love and excitement. However, her aspirations and her desires to escape only bring her further disappointment and eventually lead to unexpected, painful consequences. Flaubert’s critical portrait of bourgeois provincial life remains as powerful as ever

Son mari, Charles Bovary, ne ressemble en rien aux amants mystérieux et délicats de ses lectures : c'est un officier de santé qui exerce dans un village normand où Emma, confrontée à la réalité de la vie quotidienne, va peu à peu perdre pied.

    Set amid the stifling atmosphere of nineteenth-century bourgeois France, Madame Bovary is at once an unsparing depiction of a woman’s gradual corruption and a savagely ironic study of human shallowness and stupidity. Neither Emma, nor her lovers, nor Homais, the man of science, escapes the author’s searing castigation, and it is the book’s final profound irony that only Charles, Emma’s oxlike, eternally deceived husband, emerges with a measure of human grace.

    Voici l'histoire d'un amour impossible dans un océan de haine, l'histoire de l'innocence manipulée par la ruse, l'histoire de la barbarie humaine, de la guerre, de la vengeance : une histoire si belle et terrible à la fois, une histoire de trahisons. C'est aussi une ode épique, pleine de lumières et de ténèbres, de joies et de souffrances, de richesses et de misères où luisent les diamants, les lapis-lazuli, l'or et le marbre. C'est aussi l'abomination de la guerre, où les chairs éclatent sous les coups, où les combattants imaginent les ruses les plus folles pour anéantir leurs ennemis.

    Emma Bovary ist unglücklich: sie ist mit einem rechtschaffenen Arzt verheiratet, der sie gut behandelt, jedoch nicht die Erfüllung ihrer Wünsche und Sehnsüchte ermöglichen kann. Um dem für sie banalen, langweiligen Landleben zu entfliehen, lebt sie über ihre Verhältnisse, und begibt sich in ein Netz von Abhängigkeiten. Dadurch wird ihre eheliche Treue auf eine harte Probe gestellt - und sie beginnt, gegen die moralischen Vorstellungen ihrer Zeit, ihre unglückliche Heirat und die Schicksalsergebenheit, die man von ihr erwartet, zu rebellieren.

    Madame Bovary is a lurid tale of unremorseful adultery and violent emotions set against the background of the stupefying, boring provincial town of Yonville in Normandy. The book is a biting criticism of entitlement and living beyond one's means.

    Bouvard et Pécuchet appartiennent à la grande lignée des personnages comiques du cinéma, de Laurel et Hardy à Bourvil et Louis de Funès. Leur enthousiasme est communicatif, leur énergie débordante et leur naïveté désarmante. Le spectacle retrace les aventures cocasses de deux Parisiens - écologistes avant l'heure - qui quittent la ville pour s'installer à la campagne... Leurs échecs à répétition nous touchent au plus profond de nous-mêmes tant ils nous renvoient à notre propre image.

    Cette nouvelle publiée en 1877 dans un recueil de trois contes entamés en 1844, peut être considérée comme une œuvre testamentaire à un double point de vue : dernière œuvre de fiction achevée par Flaubert, la question de la Foi est y omniprésente et transcende la simple humanité de ses personnages.

Set during the historical struggle between Rome and Carthage, Flaubert's novel offers a richly detailed portrait of the lives and rites of two ancient kingdoms moved by their allegiances to very different gods.
