Plongez dans l'univers romanesque d'Emma Bovary ! Madame Bovary est la première oeuvre publiée par Gustave Flaubert. Parue en 1857, elle est son roman le plus célèbre, et le plus adapté au théâtre comme au cinéma. Charles Bovary est un bon garçon, niais, terne, mais gentil. Il est officier de santé, pas docteur en médecine, mais c'est suffisant. Emma Rouault est la fille d'un riche fermier, élevée dans un couvent. Elle y a reçu une « belle éducation ». Ils se marient. Très vite, Emma étouffe : la vie humble et rangée que lui offre son époux ne lui permet pas de savourer les mots félicité, passion et ivresse qui lui ont paru si beaux dans les livres. Une invitation chez un marquis, le dîner au château, le bal lui font croire que ce monde enchanté, auquel elle rêve, existe vraiment. Un hobereau du voisinage n'a pas de mal à la séduire, puis se lasse ; déçue, elle manque mourir de chagrin, prend sa revanche avec un clerc de notaire, signe des traites pour se faire belle, et entraîne son benêt de mari dans les pires embarras. Lui, médiocre incurable y voit « la faute de la fatalité ! » Au-delà du drame, Madame Bovary est un féroce réquisitoire contre la société bourgeoise, la médiocrité satisfaite de la province, la niaiserie des pensées sur mesure, réquisitoire qui tire sa force de ce qu'il se présente comme un exposé parfaitement objectif et strictement réaliste. L'oeuvre fait scandale, les pouvoirs publics s'en mêlent et les poursuites judiciaires commencent. Flaubert passe en correctionnelle, sous l'inculpation d'outrage à la morale publique et religieuse, et d'outrage aux bonnes moeurs. Il est acquitté, mais on le proclame coupable de ne pas « s'être suffisamment rendu compte qu'il y a des limites que la littérature, même la plus légère [sic], ne doit pas dépasser. » Mais c'est à son caractère de profonde humanité que Madame Bovary doit son immense succès. L'histoire d'Emma, c'est celle d'un être qui chute de faute en faute, aspiré par le gouffre qui existe entre l'idée qu'elle se fait de la vie et la vie elle-même. Cette opposition, si finement analysée par Flaubert, fait d'elle un personnage universel dans laquelle chacun peut se reconnaître. C'est là certainement le secret de la réussite d'un roman qui ne cesse d'émouvoir et de passionner. Flaubert affirme : « Ma pauvre Bovary, à cette heure, souffre et pleure dans vingt villages de France ! » Elle restera vraie tant qu'il y aura des êtres pour rêver et pour souffrir. Madame Bovary, c'est nous ! Un "classique" de la littérature française qui met en scène l'adultère et a connu un succès polémique EXTRAIT Ils commencèrent lentement, puis allèrent plus vite. Ils tournaient : tout tournait autour d'eux, les lampes, les meubles, les lambris, et le parquet, comme un disque sur un pivot. En passant auprès des portes, la robe d'Emma, par le bas, s'ériflait au pantalon ; leurs jambes entraient l'une dans l'autre ; il baissait ses regards vers elle, elle levait les siens vers lui ; une torpeur la prenait, elle s'arrêta. Ils repartirent ; et, d'un mouvement plus rapide, le vicomte, l'entraînant, disparut avec elle jusqu'au bout de la galerie, où, haletante, elle faillit tomber, et, un instant, s'appuya la tête sur sa poitrine. Et puis, tournant toujours, mais plus doucement, il la reconduisit à sa place ; elle se renversa contre la muraille et mit la main devant ses yeux.

The Darkness Of Wallis Simpson

From the author of The Gustav Sonata Wallis Simpson, the twice-divorced American woman for whom Edward Vlll abdicated in 1936, ended her life as the prisoner of her lawyer who would not allow anyone - friend, foe or journalist - to visit her in her Paris flat. Rose Tremain takes this true story and transforms it into an imaginative and ironic fiction. Her thesis is that Wallis, gaga and bed-ridden, has forgotten the king who gave up an empire for love of her. The other stories in this magnificent collection range over a variety of themes, equally original and unexpected. An East German border guard, redundant after the Berlin Wall comes down in 1989, imagines that he might still have a purpose in life: he tries to reach Russia by bicycling across the hostile wastes of Poland. A jilted man gets his revenge. A baby grows wings. A character in an Impressionist painting escapes from his 'frame' - or does he? And there's a Christmas story set in a seedy hotel... Over a million Rose Tremain books sold ‘A writer of exceptional talent ... Tremain is a writer who understands every emotion’ Independent I ‘There are few writers out there with the dexterity or emotional intelligence to rival that of the great Rose Tremain’ Irish Times ‘Tremain has the painterly genius of an Old Master, and she uses it to stunning effect’ The Times ‘Rose Tremain is one of the very finest British novelists’ Salman Rushdie ‘Tremain is a writer of exemplary vision and particularity. The fictional world is rendered with extraordinary vividness’ Marcel Theroux, Guardian

Brad Meltzer--author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Book of Fate--returns with his most thrilling and emotionally powerful novel to date. In Chapter Four of the Bible, Cain kills Abel. It is the world's most famous murder. But the Bible is silent about one key detail: the weapon Cain used to kill his brother. That weapon is still lost to history. In 1932, Mitchell Siegel was killed by three gunshots to his chest. While mourning, his son dreamed of a bulletproof man and created the world's greatest hero: Superman. And like Cain's murder weapon, the gun used in this unsolved murder has never been found. Until now. Today in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Cal Harper comes face-to-face with his family's greatest secret: his long-lost father, who's been shot with a gun that traces back to Mitchell Siegel's 1932 murder. But before Cal can ask a single question, he and his father are attacked by a ruthless killer tattooed with the anicent markings of Cain. And so begins the chase for the world's first murder weapon. What does Cain, history's greatest villain, have to do with Superman, the world's greatest hero? And what do two murders, committed thousands of years apart, have in common? This is the mystery at the heart of Brad Meltzer's riveting and utterly intriguing new thriller

The Last Days of Pompeii is a novel written by the baron Edward Bulwer-Lytton. The novel uses its characters to contrast the decadent culture of 1st-century Rome with both older cultures and coming trends. The protagonist, Glaucus, represents the Greeks who have been subordinated by Rome, and his nemesis Arbaces the still older culture of Egypt. Olinthus is the chief representative of the nascent Christian religion, which is presented favourably but not uncritically. The Witch of Vesuvius, though she has no supernatural powers, shows Bulwer-Lytton's interest in the occult - a theme which would emerge in his later writing, particularly The Coming Race.
