Summary: Madame Bovary is perhaps the first "modern" novel. It has always been the most popular of Flaubert's books, and the character of Emma Bovary is one of the most compelling figures in all literature. The story of her adulteries and financial ruin was so shocking to mid-nineteenth-century readers that the author was charged with offenses against public morals and religion. The bored wife of a bumbling provincial physician, Emma seeks to escape fro
m the tedium of her life with romantic fantasies and adulterous affairs, but is ultimately doomed to disillusionment. Unable to come to terms with reality, Emma is a figure at once noble and banal, tragic and absurd. With her wrenching story, Flaubert forged an unforgettable classic that has remained one of the most admired and influential novels ever written. That peerless twentieth-century stylist, Vladimir Nabokov, put the case memorably: "Without Flaubert there would have been no Marcel Proust in France, no James Joyce in Ireland. Chekhov in Russia would not have been quite Chekhov. "
