9780143129110: Madame Bovary

Now a major motion picture starring Mia Wasikowska, Paul Giamatti, Laura Carmichael, Ezra Miller, and Rhys Ifans, and directed by Sophie Barthes

Emma Bovary is the original desperate housewife. Beautiful but bored, she is married to the provincial doctor Charles Bovary yet harbors dreams of an elegant and passionate life. Escaping into sentimental novels, she finds her fantasies dashed by the tedium of her days. Motherhood proves to be a burden; religion is only a brief distraction. In an effort to make her life everything she believes it should be, she spends lavishly on clothes and on her home and embarks on two disappointing affairs. Soon heartbroken and crippled by debts, Emma takes drastic action with tragic consequences for her husband and daughter.
When published in 1857, Madame Bovarywas deemed so lifelike that many women claimed they were the model for its heroine. Today the novel is considered the first masterpiece of realist fiction. In this landmark translation, Lydia Davis honors the nuances and particulars of a style that has long beguiled readers of French, giving new life in English to the book that redefined the novel as an art form.

Book Description Penguin. 1 Paperback(s), 2015. soft. Book Condition: New. (Winner of the French-American Foundation Translation Prize) Beautiful and bored, Emma Bovary finds little pleasure in motherhood or in her marriage to a provincial doctor. Embarking on a spending spree and two successive affairs, the increasingly distraught Emma eventually confronts the possibility that happiness may be unattainable, and takes drastic action. Gustave Flaubert was charged with obscenity upon the 1857 publication of this novel, although after his acquittal it became a bestseller; adapted many times for stage and screen, in 2014 it was filmed with Mia Wasikowska in the title role. Man Booker International Prize winner Lydia Davis provides this meticulous, nuanced translation of a timeless classic."Flaubert's strict, elegant, rhythmic sentences come alive in Davis's English."óJames Wood, The New Yorker 342.
