«Yo celebro que Emma Bovary –ha escrito Vargas Llosa– en vez de sofocar sus sentidos tratara de colmarlos, que no tuviera escrúpulo en confundir el cul y el coeur, que, de hecho, son parientes cercanos, y que fuera capaz de creer que la luna existía para alumbrar su alcoba.»

«Será el primer caso, creo, de novela en que se hace burla de la heroína y de su galán. Pero la ironía no perjudica al pathos; al contrario, la ironía subraya el aspecto patético», escribió Gustave Flaubert en el largo proceso de redacción (1851-1856) de La señora Bovary. Alarmados por su «invencible tendencia al lirismo», algunos amigos le habían aconsejado centrarse en «un tema banal, uno de esos sucesos que abundan en la vida burguesa». Al final, tanta sujeción al «tema banal» y tanta refutación del «lirismo», volcadas en la historia de un adulterio en una ciudad de provincias, escéptica ante el espíritu romántico tanto como ante el científico, le valieron un proceso por «ofensa a la moral y a la religión».

No han dejado de correr ríos de tinta en torno a La señora Bovary, que hoy presentamos en una nueva traducción de María Teresa Gallego Urrutia. Defendida en su día por Baudelaire y Sainte-Beuve, reivindicada por Zola y el naturalismo, rescatada por Sartre y los autores del nouveau roman, admirada por Nabókov, es aún hoy un modelo central de lo que debe y no debe ser una novela. La historia de un adulterio en una ciudad de provincias, sin grandes personajes ni ambientes fastuosos, tuvo un aspecto tan realista que las instituciones se vieron agredidas y abrieron un proceso judicial contra el autor, del que saldría absuelto y que le reportó una fama sin precedentes.

Los mejores libros jamás escritos.

Verdadera enciclopedia de la estupidez humana y retrato sangrante y bilioso de la burguesía en estado puro, Bouvard y Pécuchet inaugura de algún modo la literatura del siglo XX.

La más entretenida e hilarante farsa filosófica de la historia, novela póstuma (1881) y quijotesco testamento de Gustave Flaubert, nos cuenta las andanzas de Bouvard y Pécuchet, dos almas gemelas reunidas por el azar. Una herencia y el sueño de un retiro contemplativo donde cultivar la sabiduría harán que se abismen en todas las áreas del conocimiento humano #de la jardinería al teatro, de la medicina a la religión#, para encontrar en todas ellas solo escepticismo y desazón.

Firma la espléndida introducción Jordi Llovet, sutil conocedor de todo lo que rodea al ermitaño de Croisset, y también reúne aquí, dándole a su edición un carácter único, los materiales que preparó el propio Flaubert para la segunda parte (inacabada) de la novela: el «Estupidiario», el «Diccionario de ideas corrientes» o la imposible colección de citas, entre otros textos.

«¡Pensándolo bien, es una buena idea! ¡Dios mío, pues sí! ¿Por qué no?»

Raymond Queneau dijo...
«Bouvard y Pécuchet es una odisea. La literatura profana, es decir, la verdadera, empieza con Homero, y cualquier gran obra es una Ilíada o una Odisea [...] Satiricón, laDivina Comedia,Pantagruel, elQuijote y, cómo no, elUlises (donde se reconoce la influencia directa deBouvard y Pécuchet) son odiseas, esto es, relatos de tiempo cerrado. Lasilíadas, por el contrario, van en busca del tiempo perdido: ante Troya, en una isla desierta o en casa de losGuermantes.»

Herodias, The Dance of death and The Legend of Saint Julian The Hospitalier, 3 french short stories by Gustave Flaubert. Dance of Death is a prose poem in which Death laments over the cruel task God has given him. Engaging in a dialogue with Satan, and later Nero as one of Satan's first minions, Death suggests that of the two of them, Satan has the more enviable lot, as his work will one day be done and he will have rest. "Dance of Death" is impregnated with the spirit of romanticism, which had a powerful hold on the mind of Flaubert at the time of its writing. Its florid prose makes it a very interesting curiosity for the reader wishing to know a younger Flaubert, who would only later become the famous author of Madame Bovary. Herodias is a short story by Gustave Flaubert, one of the great masters of French literature. It is a reworking of the tale of Salomé and John the Baptist, in which faith and cruelty are blended in a deadly dance culminating in tragedy. A stylistic masterpiece, with orientalist sensuality and an inspired dive into religious fervor, this short story brings the ancient era to the most colorful possible life. The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitalier is a short story by French writer Gustave Flaubert, one of the great masters of literary style and aesthetics. Saint Julian is predicted at birth to do great things, but a growing hatred takes root in him, leadinghim to seek a way to escape a destiny which seems more and more likely to be terrible. The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitalier is an inspiring tale of perseverance and humility, one of Flaubert's most touching short stories with a religious theme.
