StudiesIt is interesting to note the Ironie of which made to proof the author towards his characters. It is one of the principal characteristics of the writing. It was often noticed that the first nobody was employed that with the whole beginning of the novel, as if the Narrateur were also a character of the history. To note that Gustave Flaubert written in a foreword that the project to write Mrs Bovary was to finish some with its romantic period. Consequently, one can not see in Mrs Bovary a critic of the romanticism, but rather excesses that can cause. Moreover, the characters are very well designed psychologically. Some critical judge that the suicide would be due to the failure of the marriage or the incomprehension of Charles Bovary. It is in any case sublime and pessimistic treaty of the human condition of the 19th century.
