Definition
Gustave Flaubert's novel of a woman seeking escape from a middle class life; still regarded by many as one of the greatest  novels ever written (1857)
  • Thus, though we do not know what Shakespeare went through when he wrote LEAR, we do know what Carlyle went through when he wrote the FRENCH REVOLUTION; what Flaubert went through when he wrote MADAME BOVARY; what Keats was going through when he tried to write poetry against the coming death and the indifference of the world.
