About Gustave Flaubert

The great French novelist was born in Rouen in 1821, son of a distinguished surgeon. He studied law briefly, but in 1844 he was struck with epilepsy it was the first of a series of violent fits that filled Flaubert s life with apprehension and drove him to lead a hermit s life. Having been attracted to literature at an early age, he soon turned his entire attention to writing. His first novel, "Madame Bovary," won instant fame upon his publication in 1857: Flaubert was sued for immorality, but was later acquitted. An avid traveler, his fundamentally romantic nature reveling in the exotic, Flaubert went to Tunisia to research his second novel, "Salammbo" (1862). Both "Salammbo" and "The Sentimental Education" (1869) were poorly received, and Flaubert s genius was not publicly recognized until his masterful "Three Tales" (1877). Among his literary peers, his reputation was extraordinary, and he formed lasting friendships with Turgenev, George Sand, and the Goncourt brothers. Despite his reputation as a master of realists, he was not fundamentally a realistic novelist. Flaubert s aim was to achieve a rigidly objective form of art, presented in the most perfect form. His obsession with his craft is legendary: he could work seven hours a day, many days on end, on a single page, trying to attune his style to his ideal of balanced harmony, seeking always "le mot juste." In 1875 Flaubert sacrificed his modest fortune to help his niece, Caroline, and as a result his last years were marked by financial worry and bitter isolation. He died suddenly in May, 1880, leaving his last work, "Bouvard and Pecuchet" unfinished."
