Bailey Cove Classics: Madame Bovary

In 1853 Flaubert wrote that his work on Madame Bovary was going slowly because his personality had never been of less use to him. On another occasion he stated he was Madame Bovary. Some critics take Madame Bovary to be a text about texts. Others believe Madam Bovary is merely proof that some people should never learn to read. This edition takes account of the controversies surrounding both Madame Bovary and Madame Bovary, and so includes 12 new critical essays, transcripts of Flaubert's obscenity trial, and a new introduction by Cohen (French and Italian, Stanford U.)
