The Old Curiosity Shop

The sensational bestselling tale of Little Nell, the gorgeous baby thrown right into a shadowy, terrifying global, turns out to belong much less to the background of the Victorian novel than to folklore, fairy story, or delusion. The sorrows of Nell and her grandfather are offset via Dickens's construction of a blinding modern international inhabited by way of a few of his such a lot brilliantly drawn characters-the eloquent ne'er-do-well Dick Swiveller; the hungry maid often called the "Marchioness"; the mannish legal professional Sally Brass; Quilp's brow-beaten spouse's mother; and Quilp himself, the lustful, vengeful dwarf, whose demonic power makes a vibrant counterpoint to Nell's purity.

Madame Bovary

Variation enrichie de Thierry Laget comportant une préface et un file sur le roman.

C'est l'histoire d'une femme mal mariée, de son médiocre époux, de ses amants égoïstes et vains, de ses rêves, de ses chimères, de sa mort. C'est l'histoire d'une province étroite, dévote et bourgeoise. C'est, aussi, l'histoire du roman français. Rien, dans ce tableau, n'avait de quoi choquer l. a. société du moment Empire. Mais, inexorable comme une tragédie, flamboyant comme un drame, mordant comme une comédie, le livre s'était donné une arme redoutable : le variety. Pour ce vrai crime, Flaubert se retrouva en correctionnelle.

Aucun roman n'est blameless : celui-là moins qu'un autre. Lire Madame Bovary, au XXIe siècle, c'est affronter le scandale que représente une œuvre aussi sincère qu'impérieuse. Dans chacune de ses words, Flaubert a versé une dose de cet arsenic dont Emma Bovary s'empoisonne : c'est un livre offensif, corrosif, dont l'ironie outrage toutes nos valeurs, et los angeles littérature même, qui ne s'en est jamais vraiment remise.
