$50.00

First published in 1856, Madame Bovary was a tremendous success, ushering literary realism into the latter half of the 19th century. It is the story of Emma and Charles Bovary, whose marriage becomes dull in the rural north of France. Madame Bovary begins a series of affairs, driven mainly by her dissatisfaction with provincial life and her romantic ideations. It is without question Gustave Flaubert’s masterpiece–classic of French literature on par with Candide and Les Misérables.
