About this item

La novela más conocida de Gustave Flaubert y una de las grandes obras de la literatura universal nos acerca a la historia de Emma Rouault.


Una joven de origen campesino y huérfana de madre que contrae matrimonio con el médico Charles Bovary. El afán por ser la protagonista de una vida romántica presidida por el amor, ambición que su marido no puede satisfacer, será la perdición de la ingenua muchacha, que buscará por todos los medios, con aventuras y con amantes, escapar al tedio, la monotonía y la exasperación que se han apoderado de su vida.

La presente edición, en reciente traducción de Mauro Armiño, incluye los fragmentos, descubiertos entre los manuscritos de Flaubert, que el autor decidió a última hora no incluir en la novela. Completan el volumen un estudio introductorio de Jacques Neefs, de la Johns Hopkins University, y una cronología flaubertiana.

«Intentaba saber qué se entendía exactamente en la vida por las palabras "felicidad", "pasión" y "ebriedad", que tan hermosas le habían parecido en los libros.»


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

The notorious and celebrated novel that established modern realism
For this novel of French bourgeois life in all its inglorious banality, Flaubert invented a paradoxically original and wholly modern style. His heroine, Emma Bovary, a bored provincial housewife, abandons her husband to pursue the libertine Rodolphe in a desperate love affair. A succès de scandale in its day, Madame Bovary remains a powerful and scintillating novel.

This Penguin Classics edition is translated with notes and an introduction by Geoffrey Wall. It includes a preface by Michele Roberts.
