Madame Bovary: patterns of provincial life by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

18 editions published between 1928 and 1978 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One hundred years ago Madame Bovary, by Gustave Flaubert, was first published. It is, therefore, particularly fitting that the new translation by Francis Steegmuller should be published as a part of the centenary celebration. Perhaps no book in the history of the novel has been more enjoyed and praised by critics, fellow craftsmen and general readers of all sorts than this tale of a provincial woman who could not bear the discrepancy between her romantic dreams and the dull routine of her daily life. There is a special poignancy for most of us in the story of Emma Bovary, whose attempt to impose upon her humdrum life the substance of those dreams brought about her own dissolution. Francis Steegmuller is uniquely qualified to translate Falubert's inimitable prose, the quality of which is almost as inaccessible to translation as is most poetry. Mr. Steegmuller's Flaubert and Madame Bovary is a contemporary classic, his selection and translation of Flaubert's letters outstanding, and his critical interpretation of Flaubert among the most acute. He is eminently fitted to provide the centenary translation of Madame Bovary"--Jacket

The loves ; The art of beauty ; The remedies for love ; and the art of love by Ovid( Book )

5 editions published between 1930 and 2007 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is Julian May's translation of Ovid's 'erotic' works: The Amores (the Loves), Ars Amatoria (the Art of Love), Remedia Amoris (The Cure for Love) and the fragmentary Medicamina Faciei Feminae (Women's Facial Cosmetics). This version was published in 1930 in a 'limited' edition with sensual art deco illustrations by Jean de Bosschere. In the Amores, published about 18 BCE, Ovid portrays the evolution of an affair with a married woman named Corinna. It is unclear as to whether this is fictional or autobiographical, but it is obviously based on the experiences of a sophisticated lover. The Ars Amatoria, published about 1 BCE, is a guidebook for seduction; it includes many tips and tricks which would not be out of place in a modern dating manual, while giving intimate vignettes of daily life in Ancient Rome. The first two books are written from a male point of view; the last book, which was probably written at a later date, is addressed to women. It is believed that this work, which celebrates extramarital sex, was one of the reasons that Ovid was banished by the Emperor Augustus, who was attempting to promote a more austere morality
