Flaubert in Egypt
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAt once a classic of travel literature and a penetrating portrait of a sensibility on tour, Flaubert in Egypt wonderfully captures the young writer's impressions during his 1849 voyage to the "Orient". Using diaries, letters, travel notes, and the evidence of Flaubert's traveling companion Maxime Du Camp, Francis Steegmuller reconstructs this formative journey - through the bazaars and brothels of Cairo, down the length of the Nile, to the fabled Red Sea.
PortraitGustave Flaubert was born in Rouen in 1821, the son of a prominent physician. The success of Madame Bovary (1857) was ensured by government prosecution for "immorality"; Salammbo (1862) and The Sentimental Education (1869) received a cool public reception; not until the publication of Three Tales (1877) was his genius popularly acknowledged. His final bitterness and disillusion were vividly evidenced in the savagely satiric Bouvard and Pecuchet, left unfinished at his death in 1880.
