Madame Bovary (Inglés)
Autor: Gustave Flaubert
Editorial: Penguin Classics
Encuadernación: Tapa dura
Emma Bovary is beautiful and bored, trapped in her marriage to a mediocre doctor and stifled by the banality of provincial life. An ardent reader of sentimental novels, she longs for passion and seeks escape in fantasies of high romance, in voracious spending and, eventually, in adultery. But even her affairs bring her disappointment and devastating consequences. Flauberts erotically charged and psychologically acute portrayal of Emma Bovary caused a moral outcry on its publication in 1857. It was deemed so lifelike that many women claimed they were the model for his heroine; but Flaubert insisted: Madame Bovary, cest moi. One of the greatest novels of the 19th century, Flauberts torrid debut lives on in Geoffrey Walls brilliant translation. This edition features an introduction by Wall, and a preface on Emma Bovarys femininity and modernity by novelist Michèle Roberts.
