Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Italian feminist Maraini, a novelist, poet, dramatist, and journalist, takes on literary criticism here, recalling the unease she felt, at age 16, in reaction to "the mocking, angry way the author had introduced me to" Emma Bovary, and revisiting this narrative--in which "Emma still seems to be a hostage . . . to her author, who pursues her with a ruthlessness and tenacity that verge on the grotesque, and with a bitter, mocking determination" --as a way to understand "the relationship between authors and their characters in general." Thus, Maraini retells the Bovary story, intertwined with selections from Flaubert's letters, drawing links between the novel and its author's relationships--with his mother, his mistress Louise Colet, various male friends, even himself. A graceful, nuanced examination of a classic novel, appropriate where Bovary and/or feminist criticism circulate. Mary Carroll

Format: Hardcover
I used this book as a source for my research paper. I found it very informative and was able to read it in a short time frame, which came in quite helpful. It was full of really good tidbits about Flaubert and his life during the time of writing Madame Bovary. It drew many good comparisons and was able to keep my attention.
