All editions are beautifully designed and are printed to superior specifications; some include illustrations of historical interest. &&LI&&RBarnes & Noble Classics &&L/I&&Rpulls together a constellation of influences―biographical, historical, and literary―to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&RThe publication in 1857 of &&LI&&RMadame Bovary&&L/I&&R, with its vivid depictions of sex and adultery, incited a backlash of immorality charges. The novel tells the story of Emma Bovary, a doctor’s wife bored and unfulfilled by marriage and motherhood. She embarks upon a series of affairs in search of passion and excitement, but is unable to achieve the splendid life for which she yearns. Instead, she finds herself trapped in a downward spiral that inexorably leads to ruin and self-destruction.&&LBR&&R&&LBR&&RAlong with Tolstoy’s &&LI&&RAnna Karenina&&L/I&&R, &&LB&&RFlaubert&&L/B&&R’s tragic novel stands as a brilliant portrayal of infidelity, an incisive psychological portrait of a woman torn between duty and desire. Written with acute attention to telling detail, &&LI&&RMadame Bovary&&L/I&&R not only exposes the emptiness of one woman’s bourgeois existence and failure to fill that void with fantasies, sex, and material objects. Emma’s thirst for life mirrors the universal human impulse for idealized fulfillment.&&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R &&L/DIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LDIV&&R&&LB&&RChris Kraus&&L/B&&R is the author of the novels&&LI&&R I Love Dick, Aliens & Anorexia,&&L/I&&R and &&LI&&RTorpor,&&L/I&&R and a collection of essays, &&LI&&RVideo Green: Los Angeles Art and the Triumph of Nothingness.&&L/I&&R She is co-editor, with Sylvere Lotringer and Hedi El Kholti, of the independent press Semiotext(e). She teaches in the graduate program of the San Francisco Art Institute.&&LBR&&R&&L/DIV&&R&&L/DIV&&R
