Doamna Bovary by Gustave Flaubert RO

Rating: 1 (1 vote)
Country: Europe / France flag France
Description:
Madame Bovary is the debut novel of French writer Gustave Flaubert, published in 1856. The character lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life.

A seminal work of literary realism, the novel is now ... continue
