    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

    The refusal to settle for what life has dealt you and the consequences of trying to change it is a theme which hasn’t altered much in the last 150 years, and the astonishing beauty and challenge of Madame Bovary is as electric today as it was then. Very few books have created this much outrage and adoration.

    Issue de la bourgeoisie, Emma Bovary est élevée dans un couvent, où elle fera son "éducation sentimentale" en lisant les œuvres romantiques à la mode. 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.

Le jeune provincial Frédéric Moreau, nouvellement bachelier arrive à Paris pour faire des études de droit, il est plein de rêves et d'ambition. C'est alors qu'il croise Madame Arnoux, pour le jeune homme c'est "une apparition" qui le marquera à jamais. Étudiant velléitaire, amoureux insatisfait, entravé par des revers de fortune dans un Paris à la veille des insurrections de 1848, il va naviguer dans une société petite bourgeoise.

    Ce roman n'est pas seulement un drame, c'est un virulent réquisitoire contre la société bourgeoise, contre la médiocrité, contre les conventions, les formules toutes faites et les pensées sur mesure. Si "Madame Bovary" a conservé un immense succès auprès d'un très vaste public, c'est à son caractère profond d'humanité qu'elle le doit. Flaubert a réussi à rendre grand le banal et à donner à ce "cas" un caractère universel.

Torn between fantasy and reality, Emma, mesmerising to the opposite sex, embarks upon love affairs that belie her class aspirations, but are true to her soul. Madame Bovary is a compelling portrayal of the intensity of human passion, a characteristic that is Emma's greatest attribute, yet one which ultimately leads to tragedy.

    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.

    When Salambo, the exquisite daughter of Hamilcar, rode into the Roman camp, into Matho's tent, to exchange her beauty for the veil of Carthage - he would throw away victory and forsake his army, his nation, and his soul for the price of her body. 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.
