Gustave Flaubert is probably the most famous novelist of nineteenth-century France, and his best known work, Madame Bovary, is read in numerous comparative literature and French courses.

Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary : a reference guide by Laurence M Porter( )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flaubert's determination to achieve stylistic and structural perfection led to the creation of his masterpiece, Madame Bovary. The achievement was long considered the exemplary novel in Western literature, and writers remain deeply indebted to its legacy. This comprehensive reference begins with an introductory chapter that overviews Flaubert's life and career. A detailed summary of the novel's plot is followed by a close examination of the novel's genesis, its publication history, and the merits of various editions and translations. Later chapters discuss the social and cultural contexts informing the work, Flaubert's literary craftsmanship, and the novel's critical reception. The volume concludes with extensive bibliographic information."--Jacket

Despite this prestige, however, Hugo has often been unfairly maligned by some academic critics who have demeaned his accomplishments as both a poet and novelist by calling him a mere popularizer with a fertile imagination. These critics have argued that Hugo's greatness resides not in the production of refined and well-crafted works but in his energy, genius for self-promotion, patriotism, political courage, versatility in different genres, and massive output
