The Best 100 Authors of All Time Divider

       Gustave Flaubert's writing may seem difficult to get through as it was written in a style not familiar with those of us who live in modern times.  Don't let this stop you though.  His thoughts and imagination are well worth your time.  Referring here to Madame Bovary,  the subject is a well-to-do but lonely Doctor's wife who has many affairs and lives beyond her means.  This is not a theme stuck in the 19th century of Flaubert's time, but one that we can all relate to today.  Msr. Flaubert's book was considered  obscene at the time it was published, but was later understood to be an excellent example of the Realism school of literature and lives on today as a classic.
