About “Gustave Flaubert

  • Gustave Flaubert

    Gustave Flaubert December 12, 1821 May 8, 1880 is counted among the greatest Western novelists He was born in Rouen, Seine Maritime, in the Haute Normandie Region of France.Flaubert s curious modes of composition favored and were emphasized by these peculiarities He worked in sullen solitude, sometimes occupying a week in the completion of one page, never satisfied with what he had composed, violently tormenting his brain for the best turn of a phrase, the most absolutely final adjective It cannot be said that his incessant labors were not rewarded His private letters show that he was not one of those to whom easy and correct language is naturally given he gained his extraordinary perfection with the unceasing sweat of his brow One of the most severe of academic critics admits that in all his works, and in every page of his works, Flaubert may be considered a model of style.That he was one of the greatest writers who ever lived in France is now commonly admitted, and his greatness principally depends upon the extraordinary vigour and exactitude of his style Less perhaps than any other writer, not of France, but of modern Europe, Flaubert yields admission to the inexact, the abstract, the vaguely inapt expression which is the bane of ordinary methods of composition He never allowed a clich to pass him, never indulgently or wearily went on, leaving behind him a phrase which almost expressed his meaning Being, as he is, a mixture in almost equal parts of the romanticist and the realist, the marvellous propriety of his style has been helpful to later writers of both schools, of every school The absolute exactitude with which he adapts his expression to his purpose is seen in all parts of his work, but particularly in the portraits he draws of the figures in his principal romances The degree and manner in which, since his death, the fame of Flaubert has extended, form an interesting chapter of literary history.The publication of Madame Bovary in 1857 had been followed by scandal than admiration it was not understood at first that this novel was the beginning of something new, the scrupulously truthful portraiture of life Gradually this aspect of his genius was accepted, and began to crowd out all others At the time of his death he was famous as a realist, pure and simple Under this aspect Flaubert exercised an extraordinary influence over mile de Goncourt, Alphonse Daudet and Zola But even after the decline of the realistic school Flaubert did not lose prestige other facets of his genius caught the light It has been perceived that he was not merely realistic, but real that his clairvoyance was almost boundless that he saw certain phenomena clearly than the best of observers had done Flaubert is a writer who must always appeal to other authors than to the world at large, because the art of writing, the indefatigable pursuit of perfect expression, were always before him, and because he hated the lax felicities of improvisation as a disloyalty to the most sacred procedures of the literary artist.He can be said to have made cynicism into an art form, as evinced by this observation from 1846 To be stupid, and selfish, and to have good health are the three requirements for happiness though if stupidity is lacking, the others are useless His Oeuvres Compl tes 8 vols 1885 were printed from the original manuscripts, and included, besides the works mentioned already, the two plays, Le Candidat and Le Ch teau des avurs Another edition 10 vols appeared in 1873 1885 Flaubert s correspondence with George Sand was published in 1884 with an introduction by Guy de Maupassant.He has been admired or written about by almost every major literary personality of the 20th century, including philosophers such as Pierre Bourdieu Georges Perec named Sentimental Education as one of his favou

  • I d not intended to read Salammb , Flaubert s close to unknown second novel, but I was at the end of Madame Bovary and saw a yellowing 1922 edition in the 1 Franc pile at the Geneva flea market s book stall How could I resist It s a strange book, and at first I had trouble getting into it I d expected it to be like Madame Bovary, and it really isn t Instead of the tedium of French provincial life and the brilliant character development, we have a wide screen historical epic set around Carthage, [...]


  • In Xanadu did Kubla Khan a stately pleasure dome decreeWhenever I reread it, the cadences of the opening phrase of Coleridge s famous poem instantly draw me into an exotic world The fabled general, Kubla Khan, appears before me sumptuously enthroned in his pleasure palace and because I ve read enough nineteenth century writers who ve travelled a little to know they automatically associate the exotic with the erotic, I m never surprised when a few lines later, Coleridge mentions an Abyssinian mai [...]


  • You pass through the intimidating portcullis and enter the museum called Salammb by Gustave Flaubert It is an awesome edifice and you are duly awed So ornate, so steeped in olden times and ancient ways, so stylish in its baroque Orientalism The first gallery amazes you It describes a feast for barbarians in the halcyon days of old Carthage Such a feast, such sights to behold A feast for the senses your mind comes alive to witness the wonders there, the luscious imagery, the dreamy atmosphere, th [...]


  • Just as it s hard to believe that the Rod Stewart who gave us the classic Every Picture Tells a Story is also responsible for Da Ya Think I m Sexy , it s baffling that Flaubert wrote Salammb right after his famous effort.This is a historical novel about a revolt against Carthage by unpaid mercenaries following the First Punic War It hasn t aged nearly as gracefully as Madame Bovary, and I consider it to be quite a difficult book The first two thirds are just endlessly thick description, mostly [...]


  • Salammb , Gustave FlaubertSalammb 1862 is a historical novel by Gustave Flaubert It is set in Carthage during the 3rd century BC, immediately before and during the Mercenary Revolt which took place shortly after the First Punic War Flaubert s main source was Book I of Polybius s Histories The novel kickstarted a renewed interest in the history of the pre Imperial Rome s conflict with the North African Phoenician colony of Carthage 1985 1347 487 1363 486 1363 532 1374


  • Carthage holds a certain fascination for me, as a classics scholar, in that it was an empire of power, influence, and grand personalities and yet the legacy Carthage has left to us, her history, her culture were deliberately erased, burned to the ground with nary a trace remaining, and then replaced with the politicized fictions of Rome, who destroyed her, followed in her footsteps, and replaced her The shadow of Carthage looms large across the ancient world, but she is always a shadow dark, unk [...]


  • I had already read Salammbo a decade ago or I remembered it like a dream or a nightmare And by rereading it, this story is a dream and a nightmare all at once.The apparitions of Salammbo don t seem real Flaubert himself says in a letter to Sainte Beuve, I m not sure of her reality for neither I, nor you, nor any person, elder or modern, can know the Oriental woman, for the reason that it s impossible to approach her, to go out with her Matho prowls like a crazy man around Carthage Crazy is the [...]


  • Famous for its erotic, sadistic, and decadent content, Flaubert s exotic novel Salammb is also noted for its lush descriptive quality, visual brilliance, and Oriental texturing It is a symbolic work notorious for its atmospheric evocation of a dying civilization and imagery of sensuous and terrifying cruelty Set in North Africa after the First Punic War in the third century b.c Salammb details a mercenary revolt against the city of Carthage led by the Libyan soldier M tho and suppressed by the r [...]



  • Flaubert goes on a radically different track here after the astonishing success of Madame Bovary he goes for an Orientalist tragedy on the ruin of Carthage As expected, he put an astonishing amount of work into this he s read his Polybius, and written astonishing exaggerated accounts of the Carthaginian religion Lots of description of destruction and savagery and war The devourer god, Moloch That alone makes it worth a read.It s as though Flaubert has constructed an elaborate sand castle which i [...]

  • Salamb stata una sorpresa per me, lettrice affezionata di Flaubert Il romanzo si discosta totalmente dalle altre opere da lui scritte per contenuti e toni Si tratta di un romanzo epico, in cui sono narrate le gesta belliche tra i Cartaginesi, guidati dall astuto genio militare di Amilcare Barca, e i Barbari, guerrieri mercenari provenienti dalle pi svariate parti del mondo allora conosciuto, dai Greci ai Galli, dai Lusitani ai Libici, privi di un organizzazione militare stabile ma coraggiosi e t [...]


  • I LOVE this book.It s set during the Punic Wars and is wait for it TOTALLY KICK ASS It s super fast paced and bloody and sexy, and is the only time where Flaubert s love of the Marquis de Sade comes out It s also my favorite novel of Flaubert s even though everyone seems to think it sucks So so so so so cool.


  • A lesson from a great master in how not to write historical fiction Flaubert is a writer s writer, as Spenser is called a poet s poet, so I can say that for a review It s as outrageously bloody as Ross Leckie s Hannibal of course, with a lot class As exotic as I don t know what The past was never this exotic not exotic to itself Flaubert believed in the writer being like God, everywhere present but invisible It isn t my school nor his other, that a writer observes the world but has no right to [...]


  • The fever visions of a scholar of antiquity who, becalmed at sea, succumbs and drinks sea water Werner Herzog should have put it to film in 1973 and bankrupted a movie studio Bloody, surreal, phantasmagorical, pinwheeling on the edge of madness.



  • The unerring desire of possession can drive one to the extremities of human passion The nauseous affliction its imprinting in the mind wildly displaces reason with the abject principle of resolute blindness that moves the beholder from the clear insights of logic to the sheer antipode form of its utmost extremity as the evil eye can turn the radiance of love into the most violent ray of hate, or of wanting to preserve life and its beauty into the bleakness of its own sudden death and of divine f [...]


  • Well that was painful I can t understand why this hasn t been turned into a campy opera yet.I ve read two other books by Flaubert Madame Bovary and Sentimental Education and I ve really enjoyed his writing style in both Unfortunately for me, the writing in this couldn t be different It s like an hallucination with the drums of the barbarian horde in the background.While the writing didn t work well for me, and the history part was less than accurate unless living sphinxes existed , I couldn t q [...]


  • It s so spectacularly precise It s perfect, or less The attention to detail that would be expected of a poet given to a full length novel Flaubert must have been a lunatic It indulges enormous, baroque, ethnocentric fantasies, and I can t recall much literature that is as psychedelically ornate as this Not anything like the psychological intricacy of Madame Bovary, but I found the Romantic brute Matho and the classical, tragic heroine Salammbo enthralling enough So many vivid dream sequences th [...]

  • Mit der Geschichte konnte ich fast gar nichts anfangen, sehr langatmig und langweilig Einzig gut geschrieben waren die Schlachtszenen, diese konnten durchaus fesseln Aber zu mehr als zwei Sternen reicht es dann doch nicht.


  • Es una novela que me encant aunque algunas cosas hacen que no sea de mi total agrado No sab a que la obra en realidad era una novela hist rica, pues los acontecimientos narrados a lo largo de la obra tienen bastantes referencias reales.Luego de leer a Madame Bovary quer a conocer a otro Flaubert, porque la verdad a pesar de la antipat a por la simplona historia de Emma y su pandilla no quer a creer que ah mor a el intelecto de este escritor por la gran admiraci n que siempre ha concitado Y luego [...]


  • Before Rome squared off with the Gauls, Greeks, Persians, Germans and Huns, it had to grapple with the maritime superpower of Carthage in the Punic Wars The Carthaginians were a fascinating blend of nascent capitalists, rampant imperialists and crazy cultists who employed vast armies of mercenaries from all over Europe, Asia and Africa to fight their battles, led by the famous Barca clan who produced the great general Hannibal, not Lecter This story is set after the First Punic War when Carthage [...]


  • Note I generally go for modern translations for the classics, but for this I went with the public domain one, and it was fine.Gustave Flaubert, generally only known for Madame Bovary managed to show that he wasn t just a one trick pony with Salammbo, a historical fiction novel set in the First Punic War This isn t for the fainthearted as there is plenty acts of torture, cannibalism, and the like However, in amongst all that the romantic tale behind the story works out pretty well too, so there [...]


  • I m only half way through this time, but this is one of the most excrutiating, unreadable great novels partly due to Flaubert s triumph in stripping everything down to its material essence, avoiding all character psychology, and prompting all of us to ask why we are reading It is essentially a prose poem that deals with a violent, decadent subject 3rd century Carthage in a style that for the most part eschews psychology and heroics for multi layered imagery Cruelty and conquest are everywhere, b [...]


  • I would give the demi ream of notes I ve written during the last five months and the ninety eight volumes I ve read, to be, for only three seconds, really moved by the passion of my heroes Flaubert on writing Salammbo



  • There are some amazing descriptions of ancient carthage in here Flaubert seems to revel in describing every detail of it The characters are set pieces than anything, covered in symbols and performing rituals.


  • I could not finish this book It may be an issue of prose style and reader expectations in a 19th C work, or perhaps an issue of translation, but it was a slog that I simply couldn t keep up I am passionately interested in the Punic Wars, and was really looking forward to historical fiction set in Carthage, and there were aspects of the description that were compelling That said, 3 chapters in, description is pretty much all there is, with a narrative moving so slowly and characters acting in suc [...]
