Considered a founding work of Realism, Flaubert’s masterpiece uses the character of Emma Rouault to question and lay bare bourgeois customs and morality. Through the archetypal character of Madame Bovary, the frustrations of a woman leading a dreary and rustic life in the provinces and the lengths to which she will go to escape her mundane existence are artfully and unflinchingly described. A present-day classic, the novel caused a stir when first published and was attacked for obscenity by public prosecutors.Considerada una obra fundadora del realismo literario, la obra maestra de Flaubert usa el personaje de Emma Rouault para cuestionar y poner en evidencia las costumbres y la moral burguesa. Mediante el personaje arquetípico de Madame Bovary, las frustraciones de una mujer viviendo una cotidianidad mezquina y rústica en las provincias y las cosas que es capaz de hacer para escapar su existencia prosaica se describen ingeniosamente e impávidamente. Un clásico hoy en día, la novela causó escándalo cuando se publicó por primera vez y fue enjuiciada por obscenidad.

The great helmsman, the watchdog of the people, the medicine the state needs: all these images originated in ancient Greece, yet retain the capacity to influence an audience today. This is the first systematic study of political imagery in ancient Greek literature, history and thought, tracing it from its appearance, influenced by Near Eastern precursors, in Homer and Hesiod, to the end of the classical period and Plato's deployment of images like the helmsman and the doctor in the service of his political philosophy. The historical narrative is complemented by thematic studies of influential complexes of images such as the ship of state, the shepherd of the people, and the state as a household, and enhanced by parallels from later literature and history which illustrate the persistence of Greek concepts in later eras.
