However, like Rodolphe who, smitten by the health officer's wife and eager to
appropriate her for himself in spite of what he suspected might be complications
later on, they have often gotten both more—and less—than they bargained for.
Why does Madame Bovary continue to seduce filmmakers? Like James Rampton
(n.pag.), one is tempted to answer flippantly: because, like Mount Everest, it is
there. In fact, though, art is as complex as life, and there are compelling aesthetic
reasons ...

Cash, of course. In those other brothels, the ones for men, you pay before; you
deploy your charmless credit card on the formica desk of the madam. Here, you
bring cash. One-hundred-dollar notes, drawn especially; those notes that are too
impractical for shopping. You fold them in a roll and ease them into the hip pocket
of his pants, which hang on the large wooden knob of the door. Slipping that wad
into his pants is your final, final pleasure. You are a woman who likes to pay for it.

'I'm fed up with Bovary. They wear me out with it' (16 February 1879, Georges
Charpentier) Late in his life, Flaubert would insist that he never wanted to hear of

grain of Flaubert's desire: 'don't judge me on it. . . it was a matter of set purpose,
an exercise in composition' (30 October 1856, RdG). Exasperatingly, his first ...

decade in which Flaubert produced Madame Bovary, and particularly the year
1857 in which the volume was first published, were especially rich in the history
of Western literature. Although the death of Balzac in 1850 heralded a brief
eclipse for the novel form, these ten years saw a remarkable proliferation of
poetic publications, and a lively and wide-ranging aesthetical debate concerning
the possibilities ...
