Synopsis

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. His fiction set the standard to which other authors turned to learn their craft, and his cult of art and his unrelenting search for stylistic perfection inspired many later writers. This reference is a convenient guide to his life and work. Included are hundreds of alphabetically arranged entries for individual works, major characters, historical persons, themes, critical approaches, and other topics. Each entry is written by an expert contributor and most close with a brief bibliography.
