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

1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 150 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
