Salammbô

release date: Jan 01, 2021
Salammbô
Salammbô by Gustave Flaubert is a historical novel that was first published in 1862. Flaubert used Polybius''s Histories as his main source for the book and it was very popular when it came out - to the extent that it ignited people''s interest in the Roman''s conflict with Carthage, where the novel is set. The time period of the book is just before and during the time of the Mercenary War of c. 240 BC, which was a mutiny by troops at Carthage that began over the payment of wages. Amongst the backdrop of war, mutiny, child sacrifices, violence, and crucifixions, there is the fictional title character - a priestess and the daughter of real life historical figure and Carthaginian general, Hamilcar Barca. Lusted after by Matho, the leader of the mercenaries, she enters their camp to take back the sacred veil of Carthage which he has stolen. Written after Madame Bovary, which saw Flaubert being tried and acquitted on charges of immorality, Salammbo was a deliberately less controversial subject to write about.

"Madame Bovary

release date: May 09, 2021
"Madame Bovary
"One of the acknowledged masterpieces of 19th century realism, Madame Bovary is revered by writers and readers around the world, a mandatory stop on any pilgrimage through modern literature. Flaubert''s legendary style, his intense care over the selection of words and the shaping of sentences, his unmatched ability to convey a mental world through the careful selection of telling details, shine on every page of this marvelous work. Now the award-winning translator Margaret Mauldon has produced a modern translation of this classic novel, one that perfectly captures the tone that makes Flaubert''s style so distinct and admired.Madame Bovary scandalized its readers when it was first published in 1857. And the story itself remains as fresh today as when it was first written, a work that remains unsurpassed in its unveiling of character and society. It tells the tragic story of the romantic but empty-headed Emma Rouault. When Emma marries Charles Bovary, she imagines she will pass into the life of luxury and passion that she reads about in sentimental novels and women''s magazines. But Charles is an ordinary country doctor, and provincial life is very different from the romantic excitement for which she yearns. In her quest to realize her dreams she takes a lover, Rodolphe, and begins a devastating spiral into deceit and despair. And Flaubert captures every step of this catastrophe with sharp-eyed detail and a wonderfully subtle understanding of human emotions. Malcolm Bowie, a leading authority on French literature, explores Flaubert''s genius in his masterly introduction to this must-have book for all lovers of great literature."

A Simple Heart

release date: Apr 27, 2020
A Simple Heart
"A Simple Heart moved me to tears."—Russell Baker In A Simple Heart, the poignant story that inspired Julian Barnes'' Flaubert’s Parrot, Félicité, a French housemaid, approaches a lifetime of servitude with human-scaled but angelic aplomb. No other author has imparted so much beauty and integrity to so modest an existence. Flaubert''s "great saint" endures loss after loss by embracing the rich, true rhythms of life: the comfort of domesticity, the solace of the Church, and the depth of memory. This novella showcases Flaubert''s perfectly honed realism: a delicate counterpoint of daily events with their psychological repercussions. "Flaubert is diagnosis," Ezra Pound wrote, "the whole of Flaubert, the whole fight for the novel as ''histoire morale contemporaine'' was a fight against maxims, against abstractions, a fight back toward a human and/or total conception."

Lone Sloane: Salammbo

Lone Sloane: Salammbo
Blood and rage across the stars featuring Philippe Druillet’s legendary Lone Sloane. In the third century BC, mercenaries employed by Carthage during the first Punic War rose against their employers, who repeatedly postponed their pay. Two barbarian clan chiefs, Matho and Narr’Havas, fell in love with the beautiful and ethereal Salammbo, daughter of Hamilcar of Carthage. A bloody conflict arose. Based on the 19th century novel by Flaubert, Salammbo was reappropriated and recontextualised by Druillet in this masterwork. Transposing the ancient Punic Wars into his space fantasy universe, and splicing the identity of the novel’s Matho with his favorite character, Lone Sloane, Druillet works his intoxicatingly psychedelic magic on a literary classic, reinvigorating it from the inside out with his own transcendent storytelling. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; color: #000000} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Calibri; color: #000000; min-height: 14.0px} “Philippe Druillet is, and has always been, the master.” – Warren Ellis

Madame Bovary (Annotated)
Madame Bovary (/ˈboʊvəri/;[1] French: [madam bɔvaʁi]), originally published as Madame Bovary: Provincial Manners (French: Madame Bovary: Moeurs de province [madam bɔvaʁi moeʁ(s) də pʁɔvɛ̃s]), is the debut novel of French writer Gustave Flaubert, published in 1856. The eponymous character lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. When the novel was first serialized in Revue de Paris between 1 October 1856 and 15 December 1856, public prosecutors attacked the novel for obscenity. The resulting trial in January 1857 made the story notorious. After Flaubert''s acquittal on 7 February 1857, Madame Bovary became a bestseller in April 1857 when it was published in two volumes. A seminal work of literary realism, the novel is now considered Flaubert''s masterpiece, and one of the most influential literary works in history. The British critic James Wood writes: "Flaubert established, for good or ill, what most readers think of as modern realist narration, and his influence is almost too familiar to be visible."
