One of the greatest novels ever written, in a classic translation from Karl Marx’s daughter.
Emma, a farmer’s daughter, marries Chris Bovary, an earnest young doctor, hoping that he will be the gateway to the world of passion and wealth that she has read about in her novels, but when the married provincial life proves bland compared to her fantasies, Madame Bovary turns to adultery and excess indulgence. Will her new life fulfill her, or will it destroy her first?
The novel has been filmed numerous times, with the most recent adaptation starring Mia Wasikowska and Paul Giammati.
