Readings and Lectures

Madame Bovary Study Group, led by Beverly Langer
Modern Times Bookstore, 888 Valencia St.
In speaking of Madame Bovary Vladimir Nabokov said, "Flaubert's novel deals with the delicate calculus of human fate, not the arithmetic of social conditioning." We will consider this delicate calculus as we discuss Madame Bovary, the novel and the character, and what Flaubert meant when he said, "Madame Bovary is myself." We will also try to understand why we love this classic -- or why, perhaps, we don't. This discussion group will meet every week for two to three hours over the next four weeks. No prior reading or previous study is required. Just bring your knowledge, insight, and enthusiasm!
