Censorship Effect : Baudelaire, Flaubert, and the Formation of French Modernism (Hardcover) (William
About this item
The Censorship Effect argues that the stylistic features that prompted the criminal indictment ofMadame Bovary and Les Fleurs du Mal were the products of an intense struggle and negotiation with a culture of censorship. Censorship not only shaped the composition of these works but affected their reception and continues to operate in the field of literary criticism. Far from manifesting the autonomy proclaimed by modernism's defenders, both works show (and retain) signs of self-censorship. French modernism begins and remains deeply embedded in a culture of censorship whose proprieties, both literary and social, Baudelaire and Flaubert nevertheless challenged and transgressed.
