Sentimental Education (RED)

Häftad, Engelska, 2010-12-01

His fascination will last a lifetime, as he works to become first an acquaintance of her husband, then a firm family friend. But Frederic's hard-won closeness to Mme Arnoux will not bring satisfaction; only his own ultimate betrayal of love.

Övrig information

Gustave Flaubert was born in Rouen in 1821. Aside from his travels, and a stormy liaison with the poetess Louise Colet, his life was dedicated to the practice of his art. The success of Madame Bovary (1857) was ensured by government prosecution for "immorality"; Salammbo (1862) and A Sentimental Education (1869) received a cool public reception; not until the publication of Three Tales (1877) was his genius popularly acknowledged. His final bitterness and disillusion were vividly evidenced in the savagely satiric Bouvard and Pecuchet, left unfinished at his death in 1880.
