Gustave Flaubert - LIFE STORIES
 
 
4/12/1857     Madame Bovary, in Court and Cab
On this day in 1857, Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary was published. The serialization of the novel in the Revue de Paris the previous winter earned Flaubert almost nothing and generated one of the most famous literary trials in French history; it also vindicated a new style of writing based on the attempt to portray "ignoble reality."
