About this product
- DescriptionIn A Simple Heart, the poignant story that inspired Julian Barnes' Flaubert's Parrot, Felicite, a French housemaid, approaches a lifetime of servitude with human-scaled but angelic aplomb. No other author has imparted so much beauty and integrity to so modest an existence. Flaubert's great saint endures loss after loss by embracing the rich, true rhythms of life: the comfort of domesticity, the solace of the Church, and the depth of memory. This vella showcases Flaubert's perfectly honed realism: a delicate counterpoint of daily events with their psychological repercussions. Flaubert is diagsis, Ezra Pound wrote, the whole of Flaubert, the whole fight for the vel as 'histoire morale contemporaine' was a fight against maxims, against abstractions, a fight back toward a human and/or total conception.
- Author BiographyGustave Flaubert (1821-80) is considered to be one of the most important French novelists of the nineteenth century. He's most well known for his novel Madame Bovary, and for his desire to write a book about nothing, a novel in which all external elements, especially the presence of the author, have been eliminated, leaving nothing but style itself. Often considered a member of the naturalist school, Flaubert despised categorizations of this sort, and in novels like Bouvard and Pecuchet demonstrates the inaptness of this label. In addition to these two novels, he is also the author of A Sentimental Education, Salambo, Three Tales, and The Temptation of Saint Anthony.
