Download PDF by Gustave Flaubert: Madame Bovary

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 sort. 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 los angeles littérature même, qui ne s'en est jamais vraiment remise.
