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

3,692 editions published between 1850 and 2017 in 24 languages and held by 25,516 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 temptation of Saint Antony by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

688 editions published between 1848 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 4,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A book that deeply influenced young Freud and was the inspiration for many artists, The Temptation of Saint Anthony was Flaubert's lifelong work, thirty years in the making. Based on the story of the third-century saint who lived on an isolated mountaintop in the Egyptian desert, it is a fantastical rendering of one night during which Anthony was besieged by carnal temptations and philosophical doubt." "This Modern Library Paperback Classic reproduces the distinguished Lafcadio Hearn translation, which translator Richard Sieburth calls "a splendid period piece from one of America's premier translators of nineteenth-century French prose. In Lafcadio Hearn's Latinate rendering, Flaubert's experimental drama of the modern consciusness reads as weirdly as its oneiric original.""--Jacket
Bouvard and Pécuchet by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

623 editions published between 1881 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 4,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considered Gustave Flaubert's masterpiece, Bouvard and Pecuchet opens with two middle-aged copy-clerks who become fast friends after meeting on a city bench and discovering their shared habit of writing their names in their hats: "I should say so! Someone could walk off with mine at the office!" When a small inheritance allows Bouvard and Pecuchet to retire early and move to the country, they use their newfound leisure time to satisfy their curiosity about all the things they'd been too busy to study in the city. Flaubert shows his unlikely protagonists diving disastrously into everything from farming and politics to literature and love, and coming up empty-handed each time - until, finally, their obsessive pursuit of knowledge becomes an end in itself." Bouvard and Pecuchet unravels the novel's realist tradition, and sets the stage for the modernist innovations of Kafka, Joyce, and Beckett. Although Flaubert died before completing it, this new translation contains the fullest and most accurate version of the text, as well as his "Dictionary of Accepted Ideas" and the previously untranslated "Catalogue of Fashionable Ideas."--Publisher

The protagonist, Frederic Moreau, and his beloved, Mme Arnoux, are based on Flaubert's youthful infatuation with an older married woman. Frederic's puppy love for Mme Arnoux is at first steadfast and idealistic, and she remains faithful to her rather frivolous husband. Frederic's love ends in disillusionment, as do the subsequent passions of his life. His youthful ambitions lead to failure and boredom, and his idealistic views of social progress are disappointed by reality

"Un jeune provincial de dix-huit ans, plein de rêves et plutôt séduisant, vient de faire ses études à Paris. De 1840 au coup d'Etat de 1851, il fait l'apprentissage du monde dans une société en pleine convulsion. Sur son chemin, il rencontre le grand amour et les contingences du plaisir, la Révolution et ses faux apôtres, l'art, la puissance de l'argent et de la bêtise, l'amitié fraternelle et la fatalité des trahisons, sans parvenir à s'engager pour une autre cause que celle de suivre la perte de ses illusions" [source : 4e de couv.]

A simple heart by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

238 editions published between 1890 and 2017 in 8 languages and held by 791 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 manners by Gustave Flaubert( Book )

29 editions published between 1892 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Emma Rouault marries Charles Bovary she imagines she will pass into the life of luxury and passion that she reads about in sentimental novels and women's magazines. But Charles is a dull country doctor, and provincial life is very different from the romantic excitement for which she yearns. In her quest to realize her dreams she takes a lover, and begins a devastating spiral into deceit and despair."--Jacket

Flaubert and Madame Bovary; a double portrait by Francis Steegmuller( Book )

5 editions published between 1939 and 1968 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Francis Steegmuller's double portrait of Madame Bovary and her maker is a remarkable and unusual biographical study, a sensitive and detailed account of how an unpromising young man turns himself into one of the world's greatest novelists. Steegmuller starts with the young Flaubert, prone to mysterious fits, hypochondriacal, at odds with and yet dependent on his bourgeois family. Then, drawing on Flaubert's voluminous correspondence, Steegmuller tracks his subject through friendships and love affairs, a trip to the Orient, a nervous breakdown and tenuous recovery, and finally into the study, where a mind at once restless and jaded finds a focus in the precisely detailed reality of an imagined woman, utterly ordinary in her unhappiness, whose story was to revolutionize literature."--BOOK JACKET
