Description

Often described as the perfect novel , Madame Bovary is said to have had an influence on modern fiction that is so profound it is difficult to perceive. It relates the tale of a bored and unsatisfied woman, struggling to find contentment in nineteenth-century middle-class French society. To cope with the emptiness of her existence she embarks on a series of disastrous affairs and runs up huge debts.
