    About "Gustave Flaubert Robert Baldick"

    1. Gustave Flaubert Robert Baldick

      Gustave Flaubert December 12, 1821 May 8, 1880 is counted among the greatest Western novelists He was born in Rouen, Seine Maritime, in the Haute Normandie Region of France.Flaubert 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 style.That 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 history.The publication of Madame Bovary in 1857 had been followed by scandal 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 phenomena clearly than the best of observers had done Flaubert is a writer who must always appeal to 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 artist.He can be said to have made cynicism into an art form, as evinced by this observation from 1846 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 8 vols 1885 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 10 vols appeared in 1873 1885 Flaubert s correspondence with George Sand was published in 1884 with an introduction by Guy de Maupassant.He has been admired or written about by almost every major literary personality of the 20th century, including philosophers such as Pierre Bourdieu Georges Perec named Sentimental Education as one of his favou

    1. 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 [...]


    2. JOHN CLEESE: I would like to register a complaint about this parrot, what I read about not half an hour ago in a Flaubert short story.MICHAEL PALIN: Oh yeah? What's wrong wiv it?CLEESE: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my good man. It's representing the Holy Ghost, that's what's wrong with it.The rest of this review is available elsewhere (the location cannot be given for policy reasons)


    3. 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 [...]


    4. Three miniatures of supreme craftmanship, the epitomy of Flaubert's art up to that time. And then like Ambrose Bierce some 40 years afterwards, Gustav crossed the border and joined a personal revolution, he got lost in his own post-modernism ( Bouvard et Pecuchet)


    5. Este fue el último libro que publicó en su vida Gustave Flaubert, más allá de su extravagante proyecto aparecido póstumamente, y que se llamó “Bouvard y Pécuchet”. Estos tres cuentos vieron la luz en 1877, pero fueron escritos dos años antes.La idea de Flaubert era darse un respiro y escribir algo más fresco que la complicación a la que estaba sometido con Bouveard y Pécuchet, y es por ello que decide publicarlos.Los tres cuentos están ambientados en épocas bien distintas, el pr [...]


    6. Two masterpieces out of three isn't bad. OK, maybe I'm being a bit unfair to ol' Gus. But The Simple Life and the story about the Knight Hospitaler are just beautiful little pieces and I adore them. Then the John the Baptist story seems mediocre by comparison, like a watered-down Salammbo. Ah well. Two brilliant tales are more than many of us could ever hope for.


    7. Simple Heart (includes the parrot), St Julian Hospitator & Herodias. Beautiful, vivid tales with a mythical feel - almost epic, which is an achievement given their brevity.



    8. Κυριολεκτώ πιστεύοντας πως γράφω ανοησίες, ο Φλωμπέρ σε θέμα κατάταξης είναι το λογοτεχνικό ανάλογο του Σοπενάουερ: ακατηγοριοποίητος. Κινείται ανάμεσα σε διάφορα λογοτεχνικά ρεύματα, με την ίδια ευχέρεια και ταχύτητα που ο Λούκι Λουκ βγάζει το περίστροφο απ’ τη θήκη. Αυ [...]


    9. * Kitapta birbirinden farklı üç hikaye ve her birinde üç farklı karakterde kahraman var. Saf Bir Kalp hikayesinde yalnızlaştıkça katolik inancına sıkı sıkıya sarılan, bundan başkaca da sığınacak bir yeri olmayan Felicite isimli bir hizmetçinin hayat hikayesi; Konuksever Aziz Julien'in Efsanesinde ise, av merakı ve öldürme içgüdüsü nedeniyle anne-babasının ölümüne neden olan ve hristiyanlarca kutsal sayılan "Aziz Julien"le özdeşleştirilen Julienin hikayesi; ve [...]


    10. I have the fire department coming around later for a lecture on electrical safety. Apparently, my unplugging policy needs revising. For fifteen years of my life, I never unplugged a single plug (even in multisockets) and encountered no raging conflagrations in my boudoir (except in the bed—wink wink). But now everyone’s telling me what a buffoon I was! That you must ALWAYS unplug your appliances at night in case spontaneous friction occurs and the whole neighbourhood burns to a crisp! So, lo [...]


    11. With his allegedly "immoral" first novel Madame Bovary Flaubert established himself as a leading exponent of the budding realist approach to literature with its emphasis on the sometimes sordid details of everyday life. The same elements recur in Sentimental Education but, in contrast, the historical novel Salammbô , is an exercise in over-the-top exotic Orientalism.This edition of Flaubert's late "Three Tales" features a high-profile guest foreword by Margaret Drabble, as well as an introducti [...]


    12. A escrita de Flaubert, à primeira vista, parece mera listagem incessante de acontecimentos. Mas isso é um equívoco. Logo percebemos que, quase magicamente, os acontecimentos apresentados formam um ambiente povoado de sentimentos, valores, sensações, vida enfim. Como, de resto, acontece na realidade! Não se trata exatamente de um equívoco, portanto. É verdade, sim, que o estilo do autor é o da sucessão quase vertiginosa de acontecimentos e atos, colados com algumas pequenas descrições [...]


    13. Flaubert tells the lives of three saints in styles suited to their times yet always unmistakably his own. He relates the story of Felicite, an illiterate servant loyal for her lifetime to her undeserving mistress. The nineteenth century French countryside Flaubert made his own in Madame Bovary provides the setting and his analytic but never condescending prose produces a realist masterpiece. For the medieval story of St Julian Hospitaller, Flaubert creates his own version of a tale from The Gold [...]


    14. Alors le Lépreux l'étreignit; et ses yeux tout à coup prirent une clarté d'étoiles; ses cheveux s'allongèrent comme les rais du soleil; le souffle de ses narines avait la douceur des roses; un nuage d'encens s'éleva du foyer, les flots chantaient. Cependant une abondance de délices, une joie surhumaine descendait comme inondation dans l'âme de Julien pâmé; et celui dont les bras le servaient toujours grandissait, grandissait, touchant de sa tête et de ses pieds les deux murs de la ca [...]


    15. Flaubert is a rather cruel and beautiful writer who fascinates me. In these three stories you can find little morsels of his life's great preoccupations, which he developed further in his novels.In Un Coeur Simple (a simple heart), his subject is a selfless and stupid peasant woman. For Flaubert it was a great intellectual and aesthetic challenge to shape something of enduring beauty from the rough material of the everyday and the banal. It was a challenge he was to pursue with obsessive tenacit [...]


    16. Ba câu truyện kể về ba vị thánh.Truyện đầu tiên kể về một vị thánh bình thường giản dị, với cái nhìn bao dung và tình yêu to lớn khủng khiếp, tình yêu ấy lớn đến độ khiến người ta xúc động, đặc biệt khi tình yêu đó đặt ở một bà giúp việc ít học, cần mẫn. Đây là truyện tôi thích nhất, vì cái cảm giác thấu hiểu của tác giả dành cho một con người tưởng chừng không có gì [...]


    17. Bộ Giáo dục nên cho truyện Một tấm lòng chất phác vào giảng dạy, vì thật sự nó quá đẹp để bị lơ như vậy. Truyền thuyết về Thánh Julien Hiếu khách cũng rất hay, nhưng Hérodias lại không được như hai truyện đầu.


    18. A Simple Heart is a naturalistic story in the style of Madame Bovary, but perhaps told with more kindness towards the protagonist (though personally I think Flaubert was pretty kind to Emma anyway). It was quite lovely, but I don't think it succeeded as well as Emma because it was shorter and its subject less morally suspect. Though that implies that the reason Emma is so good is because of its sensational aspect, which is not true. It's the way he deals with someone behaving so strangely? (what [...]


    19. Mởi gặp lần đầu: dã sử công giáo.Thể loại này tác giả mà tưởng tượng quá lố là thể nào cũng bị tẩy chay. Thật là công bằng khi cả 3 truyện đều có độ dài ngang nhau, tức 1/3 quyển.Hai truyện đầu không biết tích của thánh nào: Một tấm lòng chất phac, Jullien Hiếu khách. Truyện đầu mang phong thái cổ tích người tốt việc tốt, một người hết lòng tận tụy trong mọi việc trong cả đ [...]


    20. I was surprised at the number of biblical references in these stories though I probably shouldn’t have been given Flaubert’s time and place. He lived in a Catholic country during a religious era. I’ve read lots of contemporaneous Victorian fiction and though the Brits throw in many bible tie Flaubert out does them. In ‘A Simple Heart’ Felicite is goodness incarnate seeking only to love without seeming to need anything more than an other for which to care. She’ll even settle for inani [...]


    21. These three short stories are an interesting little set. I tend to rate the stories differently, as they vary in quality.The first story, "A simple heart" is very good, with some lovely descriptions of rural France along with the character of Felicite. Loulou the parrot also makes his appearance."The legend of Saint Julian" is a story that is strange and haunting. It has overtones of the Arabian Nights in it's style and mystical elements."Herodias" was the weakest story. It concerns John the Bap [...]


    22. Đọc xong mới hiểu tại sao "Một tấm lòng chất phác" được dịch từ lâu, còn hai truyện kia bây giờ mới dịch.


    23. It had been some years since I'd read Flaubert. Which, in retrospect seems odd to me as I really remember loving the two novels of his that I'd read in the past--Madame Bovary in college (which supplies an epigram for my first collection of stories, Poison and Antidote) and, as background for my Ph.D. dissertation on literary otherworldly journeys, The Temptation of St, Anthony, a little more than a decade ago. So, why do I tarry to read the remainder of the master's works? Why do I not turn to [...]


    24. To draw a comparison between Flaubert and dubstep producer Burial (one that I am sure has been made many times before), it's frustrating to see an artist release shorter form snatches of their work (short stories in the Frenchman's case; EPs in that of the south London urban music chronicler) when one pines for a full length work along the lines ofMadame BovaryorUntrue . Not thatThree Tales reaches anywhere near the quality ofRival DealerorStreet Halo- the stories seem fusty, old fashioned and i [...]


    25. Thích 2 truyện đầu, truyện cuối có lẽ tới lúc nào đó t sẽ đọc lại để có thể hiểu hơn ý tứ của tác giả.


    26. Flaubert's narrative is absolutely incredible. His attention to the details of a life, his attention to the details of a story give so much weight to the character in these stories. You know and understand Felicite so well in a "Simple Heart" and you know so well what she has gone through in life as well as the fact that you know what ends are in store for her but you will cry anyway, and I do not believe that my tears were for sentiment alone. Or in other words, not for my experiences that may [...]


    27. Non so se riuscirò mai a capire fino in fondo Flaubert - mi piace leggerlo, adoro il suo stile; ma non riesco ad apprezzare allo stesso modo le sue storie. Era accaduto, in parte, con Madame Bovary (comunque bellissimo, che spero di rileggere presto); ma leggendo questi racconti quest'impressione si è fatta molto più forte. Il primo, pur essendo forse il più bello, scivola in una drammaticità tale da sembrare parodistica; gli altri due sembrano degli esercizi, indubbiamente ben eseguiti e p [...]



    28. تكمن قوة فلوبير فى أنه يكون فى قمة الجدية وقمة السخرية فى نفس الوقت
