About this title

Synopsis:

In 1857, following the publication of Madame Bovary, Flaubert was charged with having committed an "outrage to public morality and religion." Dominick LaCapra, an intellectual historian with wide-ranging literary interests, here examines this remarkable trial. LaCapra draws on material from Flaubert’s correspondence, the work of literary critics, and Jean-Paul Sartre’s analysis of Flaubert. LaCapra maintains that Madame Bovary is at the intersection of the traditional and the modern novel, simultaneously invoking conventional expectations and subverting them.

About the Author:

Dominick LaCapra is Professor Emeritus of History and Comparative Literature. He is the author of many books, including History, Literature, Critical TheoryHistory and Its Limits: Human, Animal, Violence; and History in Transit: Experience, Identity, Critical Theory.
