    Ever wondered if stark realities of life were humans, how would they converse What would death reveal to Satan which may surprise agony What may joy surmise on pain that might recall God s support What might greed and insanity bring to table worthy of discussion in peace s eyes Where would loyalty stand should all others be permitted to share the same house Flaubert embarks on a bold journey, by giving voice to these very boundless giants and drawing a territory around them by erecting three Ever wondered if stark realities of life were humans, how would they converse What would death reveal to Satan which may surprise agony What may joy surmise on pain that might recall God s support What might greed and insanity bring to table worthy of discussion in peace s eyes Where would loyalty stand should all others be permitted to share the same house Flaubert embarks on a bold journey, by giving voice to these very boundless giants and drawing a territory around them by erecting three walls of formidable texture and strength, painted with magnanimous coats of deceptive prose and magnetic rhythm Reverberating within their throes are three teeming groups of conversations the unsettling yet hypnotizing exchange on continuity and termination between death and satan, the rising and falling chronicles of an assiduous man with a coal black barbaric streak and the indefatigable affection of a gregarious maid towards her bountiful parrot The stories have powerful mouthpieces and their innermost themes dance with vigor at Flaubert s deft call One has to be a sworn cynic to deny Flaubert, his versatility and adroitness.But even the best architect in this world cannot lay claim without sumptuous debate on completeness of a house having chosen to withhold a fourth wall to his structure The three walls, in this story, also could not undermine the importance of a fourth wall on my dwelling tastes While the stories ran with unrestrained velocity, the stability that imparts gravitas to their colossal mass was missing While I could sense Flaubert s great passion as a beaming halo behind his two characters, Julian in The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitaller and Felicite in A Simple Soul, the characters themselves did not assume a life of their own despite their manifold perditions Regard me with pessimism if you wish but my limited observations indicate that the greatest characters have risen from the flames of failures and damnations And Flaubert s miserly shower of these redemptive pulses on his characters seemed like outright injustice to their etching.I wish I had peppered a prayer on my lips, standing by Julian s hours of penance may be, straightened a few wrinkles on the fatigued brows of Felicite s loneliness Alas my empathies quietly escaped from the open space of this house But not before taking the idiosyncrasies of loulou surreptitiously in my bag, who went on to adorn the chief mantle in Julian Barnes Flaubert s Parrot

    This collection of longish short stories is Gustave Flaubert s take on saints lives The stories go chronologically back in time from 19th century France, to the Middle Ages, to the New Testament This may be surprising from an author who wrote about people with less than moral lives and who was well known for being critical of the Catholicism of his time However, the three stories contained in this book are brilliant.The first story, Un coeur simple A Simple Heart , is about a saint who is This collection of longish short stories is Gustave Flaubert s take on saints lives The stories go chronologically back in time from 19th century France, to the Middle Ages, to the New Testament This may be surprising from an author who wrote about people with less than moral lives and who was well known for being critical of the Catholicism of his time However, the three stories contained in this book are brilliant.The first story, Un coeur simple A Simple Heart , is about a saint who is in all ways an unknown, a nobody Her name, F licit , is ironic, as her life of domestic servitude proves anything but felicitous Lacking in education, she overflows with affection for her difficult mistress, Mme Aubain, and the two children of the family, Paul and Virginie These last are the names of the main characters of Paul Et Virginie, a novel which Flaubert mocks in Madame Bovary As the children eventually drop out of her life and her world shrinks around her, the one joy of her dull existence is a parrot which she names Loulou She loves it so much that it eventually takes on a rather intense religious significance.The second story, La l gende de Saint Julien l hospitalier is a retelling of the life of a medieval saint The child of doting parents, Julien very early on becomes addicted in a frighteningly sadistic way to the extermination of animals for sport, and becomes a great hunter Having ignored a baleful warning issued by a miraculous stag, he commits a horrendous crime, and in penance renounces the world to become a hermit and a ferryman Then a mysterious stranger comes to trouble him and the interaction between them is truly strange.The third story, H rodias, is Flaubert s retelling of the beheading of St John the Baptist He goes over the biblical narrative but adds stunning visual descriptions, background details and minor characters to flesh it out What links these three tales is a fascination with small, sparkling details An exotic aura surrounds the stories, even when the setting is as unromantic as the Normandy of Flaubert s time There is a sense of fatality which directs the lives of the respective saints to their inevitable conclusion, a scene of apotheosis In all three cases, this is an ambiguous and even erotic, but ultimately unforgettable moment Flaubert s tales are still influencing literature today Loulou, the parrot of A Simple Heart, was the inspiration for Julian Barnes Flaubert s Parrot, a comic detective novel mixed with abundant reflections on Flaubert s life and works Saint Julien is quoted extensively in Yann Martel s Beatrice and Virgil which has its own bizarre and sadistic plot twists H rodias is supposed to have influenced Salome by Oscar Wilde I wonder what l oncle Gustave, that irascible, inscrutable, lascivious, high strung old curmudgeon, would think if he knew that his stories had fathered such progeny Would he be surprised Flattered Amused Maybe But then again, maybe not

About the Author: Gustave Flaubert

Gustave Flaubert December , May , is counted among the greatest Western novelists He was born in Rouen, Seine Maritime, in the Haute Normandie Region of FranceFlaubert 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 styleThat 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 historyThe publication of Madame Bovary in had been followed byscandal 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 phenomenaclearly than the best of observers had done Flaubert is a writer who must always appealto 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 artistHe can be said to have made cynicism into an art form, as evinced by this observation from 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 vols 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 vols appeared in Flaubert s correspondence with George Sand was published in with an introduction by Guy de MaupassantHe has been admired or written about by almost every major literary personality of the th century, including philosophers such as Pierre Bourdieu Georges Perec named Sentimental Education as one of his favou.
