Madame Bovary Is A Universal Text
1,052 wordsGUSTAVE FLAUBERT ONCE REMARKED, Madame Bovary, cest moi (Madame Bovary is me). On the surface, this comment seems ridiculous; the circumstances of Flaubert's life have nothing in common with those he created for his most famous character. However his reasons for writing and the techniques he administers in portraying his characters make it obvious that he was the basis for the character of Emma Bovary. Of course he failed to add that so are you and I, we are all the victims of unrealized or unre...

Madame Bovary Real Life
242 wordsGustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary is almost cynical. Emma is flighty; she is unable to face the prospect of not being completely, happy, and rich. She turns her back on a loving husband who would give her anything it was in his power to give, and quests after a life out of a storybook. This book is satirical; Flaubert is almost poking fun at Madame Bovary's silly reasoning. She does as much as she can to liven up her life, and ends up regretting everything she does. She regrets her marriage, this...

Madame Bovary Charles Bovary
931 wordsGustave Flaubert presents one extreme side of human life many would very much rather think does not exist. He presents a tale of sensual symbolism within the life of Charles Bovary. Madame Bovary is the story of Emma Bovary, but within the scope of symbolic meaning, the make-up of Charles is addressed. It is representative of deep sadness and a despondent outlook on life whose many symbols are, at times, as deeply embedded in the story line as a thorn in a callous heel. The elements making up th...

The vine is just a vine, not the True Vine, and is indifferently identified with the serpent, who is sick. Cloportes which drag themselves along are not angels to close the gates but woodlice.
