Download e-book for kindle: Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert

Variation enrichie de Thierry Laget comportant une préface et un file sur le roman.

C'est l'histoire d'une femme mal mariée, de son médiocre époux, de ses amants égoïstes et vains, de ses rêves, de ses chimères, de sa mort. C'est l'histoire d'une province étroite, dévote et bourgeoise. C'est, aussi, l'histoire du roman français. Rien, dans ce tableau, n'avait de quoi choquer l. a. société du moment Empire. Mais, inexorable comme une tragédie, flamboyant comme un drame, mordant comme une comédie, le livre s'était donné une arme redoutable : le kind. Pour ce vrai crime, Flaubert se retrouva en correctionnelle.

Aucun roman n'est blameless : celui-là moins qu'un autre. Lire Madame Bovary, au XXIe siècle, c'est affronter le scandale que représente une œuvre aussi sincère qu'impérieuse. Dans chacune de ses words, Flaubert a versé une dose de cet arsenic dont Emma Bovary s'empoisonne : c'est un livre offensif, corrosif, dont l'ironie outrage toutes nos valeurs, et l. a. littérature même, qui ne s'en est jamais vraiment remise.

Good boy. That’s swell. ” Lennie droned to himself softly, “ ‘I ain’t gonna say nothin’ . . I ain’t gonna say nothin’ . . ,” said George. ” Lennie looked puzzled. ” “Oh, so ya forgot that too, did ya? ” A light of understanding broke on Lennie’s face. “They run us outta Weed,” he exploded triumphantly. “Run us out, hell,” said George disgustedly. “We run. ” Lennie giggled happily. ” George lay back on the sand and crossed his hands under his head, and Lennie imitated him, raising his head to see whether he were doing it right.

With us it ain’t like that. We got a future. We got somebody to talk to that gives a damn about us. We don’t have to sit in no bar room blowin’ in our jack jus’ because we got no place else to go. If them other guys gets in jail they can rot for all anybody gives a damn. ” Lennie broke in. “But not us! An’ why? Because . . ” He laughed delightedly. ” “You got it by heart. ” “No, you. I forget some a’ the things. K. Someday—we’re gonna get the jack together and we’re gonna have a little house and a couple of acres an’ a cow and some pigs and——” “An’ live off the fatta the lan’,” Lennie shouted.

A big carp rose to the surface of the pool, gulped air and then sank mysteriously into the dark water again, leaving widening rings on the water.
