Masterfully written. Insightful detailing of the times, tragic, ideas of romanticism and enlightenment wonderfully weaved in characters of Madame Bovary and Homais.
I am struck perhaps by how tragic it is. How transient life and love and keeping up pretenses are. Even we as the reader are fickle switching our opinions our views on each of the characters, sympathizing first with Charles then Emma and then Charles again.
What is love?
