If one were to ask, ‘World, which is the most perfect novel ever written?’ the world would immediately answer: Madame Bovary.” (Washington Post Book World) Sensuous, romantic young Emma Bovary is dissatisfied with her humdrum married life. Seeking passion, she drifts into a series of sordid affairs, but her disillusionment and doom are inevitable. A brilliant psychological portrait, Madame Bovary searingly depicts the human mind in search of transcendence.

In an attempt to escape into an exciting world of passion and dreams, she drifts into sordid affairs with Rodolphe Boulanger and Léon Dupuis. The first of these lovers, an older man, dominates the affair, while the second, inexperienced and young, is dominated. The eventual collapse of Emma’s romantic dreams is inevitable, and her disillusionment leads ultimately to her doom. A brilliant psychological portrait, Madame Bovary searingly depicts the human mind in search of transcendence. Acclaimed as a masterpiece upon its publication in 1857, it catapulted Flaubert to the ranks of the world's greatest novelists and ushered in a new age of realism in literature.
