Summary :

Flaubert's masterpiece detailing the 'moral history' of his generation. Through Frédéric, a student of moderate means, Flaubert tells the semi-autobiographical tale of a young man's futile infatuation with an older woman. Against the backdrop of a turbulent nineteenth century Paris, the novel is at once a scathing satire of contemporary politics and a paean to the paradox of love.
