About this book


The essence of Flaubert's art springs from certain key contradictions: between pessimism and a sense of human potential, and aesthetically, between an attraction for lofty themes and seriousness against an attraction for the real and everyday. Though superficially his books suggest that he alternated between the two poles, close examination shows that the specific flavour of his work lies in manifold varieties of interpretation between the two. David Roe examines Flaubert's major works in this context, and also explores the fertile field of reinterpretation provided by Flaubert to critics and practising novelists.
