The protagonist, Frederic Moreau, and his beloved, Mme Arnoux, are based on Flaubert's youthful infatuation with an older married woman.

His youthful ambitions lead to failure and boredom, and his idealistic views of social progress are disappointed by reality

Dans "Hérodias", Flaubert mêle avec habileté, de manière indistincte, données historiques présumées exactes et affabulations. Conter, n'est-ce pas ajouter du mensonge pour parvenir à une crédibilité paradoxalement plus grande ?

A simple soul by Gustave Flaubert( )

15 editions published between 1904 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A story about a girl named Felicité. She is a servant who has lived with the same family ever since she was betrayed by her lover. She has a strong sense of loyalty and self sacrifice: she lives to help others. Flaubert provides us with a full character which exhibits a quiet, uneducated saintliness that weathers a life of significant hardship. The text is down-to-earth realistic description with simple items such as a map illustrating her complete lack of education and a (stuffed) parrot which the priest recognizes the importance of in a final gesture to the servant. This is a "must read" book

119 editions published between 1914 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of an adolescence's discovery of illicit love
A simple heart by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

298 editions published between 1890 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 1,091 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One single noise reached her ears now, the voice of the parrot. With an attention to the details of bourgeois life considered almost scandalous at the time, A Simple Heart will remind many why Gustave Flaubert was acclaimed as the first great master of realism. But this heart-breaking tale of a simple servant woman and her life-long search for love meant something else to Flaubert. Written near the end of his life, the work was meant to be a tribute to George Sand'who died before it was finished'and was written in answer to an argument the two were having over the importance of realism. Although the tale displays his virtuosic gift for telling detail, and is based on one of his actual servants, Flaubert said it exemplified his belief that "Beauty is the object of all my efforts." This sparkling new translation by Charlotte Mandell shows how impeccably Flaubert achieved his goal. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time
Madame Bovary : provincial ways by Gustave Flaubert( Book )
