MADAME BOVARY by Gustave in a new translation by Steegmul Flaubert


Email this review


An authority on Flaubert (witness his editing and translating of The Selected Letters in 1954 and his biographical study, Flaubert and Madame Bo 1939- both now under the Farrar, Straus imprint), Francis Steegmuller has retranslated the classic story of the provincial woman whose romantic dreams were at odds with the dull routine of daily living. Here is a novel that is on virtually every 100 Best Books list, but that most people will confess to not having read. This new translation should bring it within accessible reach.
