Inhaltsangabe: Any reader should find here something of interest in Gustave Flaubert's letters, whether it be the intimate revelations of an original mind, the rich portrait of a time and place or the linguistic and stylistic brilliance of a great writer. The reader learns of the young Flaubert, unhappy at school, tormented as a lover. We travel with him to the temples and brothels of Egypt; to Palestine, Turkey, and then later to Tunisia. They witness the genesis of some of the most remarkable literature of the 19th century, and on until his financially secure old age. Selected and translated by Franics Steegmuller, and with footnotes, this edition is a companion and introduction to Flaubert's work.
Rezension: 'These magnificent letters... are a riotous kaleidoscope of genre: coarse, elegant, dirty, yearning, witty, depressed, but always effortlessly intelligent. And whether in a morgue, brothel or dining room, Flaubert takes it all in' Julian Barnes
