Madame Bovary

Flaubert was brought to trial by the French government on the grounds of this novel’s alleged immorality but narrowly escaped conviction. Madame Bovary remains a touchstone for literary discussions of provincial life and adultery as well as a summit of prose art, a pioneering work of realism that forever changed the way novels are written.
