The Sentimental Education is the journey of a young man — Frederic, the man of all weaknesses — and other sentimentxle, who dreams of senrimentale love and life, but who deliberately spoils himself in sordid loves. Indeed, the woman he loves is married and their love is impossible. Without living like a monk, the young man, whom Flaubert describes as bea Oh, I who adore Flaubert!
Without living like a monk, the young man, whom Flaubert describes as beautiful, and rather intelligent, could, even after going ecucazione, even after making many errors, he could have done something good in his life but This said, him and his friends — men — were totally indifferent to me, because … well… why?
So the result is that me, reader, felt only indifference for the characters. So if you wish to read about 19th women characters, read it! View all 3 comments.

Flaubert has fflaubert a great job of giving us an account of one of the most selfish protagonists around. And let’s face it, there are a lot about when you start looking. Frederic Xentimentale is not only intensely self-centred, but I picked up the following personality defects, as well: No hero here, just a feller whose main preoccupation in life is to get in bed with married women and other peopl Flaubert has done a great job of giving us an account of one of the most selfish protagonists around.
No hero here, just a feller whose main preoccupation in life is to get in bed with married women and other people’s mistresses – and he does not even do this very successfully! Not much sentiment there, nor much of an education. I just loved this line from page of the OUP edition. Frederic, just returned from Paris, is speaking with Louise, a young country girl educaione is infatuated with him odd in itself: Well might Frederic be embarrassed by the question, as Frederic does bugger all in Paris, except trying to get into bed with women, generally unsuccessfully.
Did I mention that Frederic likes women with loads of money, as well? Parts one and three are the best, and there are some really strong descriptions of the revolution in Paris. It is an essential read apparently if you are interested in French literature.
Look, I liked it, but Frederic just had loser written all over him. A wishy-washy 3 stars, just like Frederic. Lovers of 19th century France. Recommended to Czarny by: It is impossible to remember who first recomends Flaubert to you. Anyone who enjoys reading a long tale of unrequited love involving a young man of artistic temperament and an inaccessible married woman will derive great pleasure from this work which comes from the pen of one the greatest stylists in the history of French literature.
If the basic premise does not appeal to you, this otherwise wonderful book filled with Parisien ambiance from the era when Paris was the literary capital of the world will eduxazione quite a chore to read.
Aside from the technical brio of Anyone who enjoys reading a setnimentale tale of unrequited love involving a young man of artistic temperament and sentimentape inaccessible married woman will derive great pleasure from this work which comes from the pen of one the greatest stylists in the history of French literature. Aside from the technical brio of Flaubert, the Sentimental Education also offers a brilliant picture of life amongst the bourgeoisie of Paris in the s as well as very good portrait of the revolution that brought Napoleon III to power.
But perhaps it’s because he set such a lofty ambition for himself that this novel is a little dull. He acknowledged as much, saying that his project of providing the moral history of his generation meant “I am obliged to push into the background the things that are precisely the most interesting. The novel is vast in scope, tracking most of the history of nineteenth century Paris but for the majority of this time relatively little happens in the lives of Flaubert’s characters.
Whereas in Madame Bovary the plot is built around the titular character’s various crises, sucking the reader in to them as they build to crescendo, there is comparatively little narrative drive in Sentimental Education. The ending is worth vlaubert around for, but it will take a bit of perseverance to get there.
But it wasn’t meant for diversion anyway. The stiory of a young man and an older woman.
L’educazione sentimentale by Gustave Flaubert (4 star ratings)
Despite the title, Flaubert was generations ahead of himself. The story, beginning in Paris inis told through the mind and feelings of Frederic Moreau, a young man dissatisfied with the life expected of him by his middle class environment.
Flaubert uses the same quasi-omniscient narrator perspective with several of the minor characters, although he is somewhat inconsistent in so doing. Moreau is youthful romantic, consumed with his grand fantasies, lacking self-discipline, a character whom Flaubert does The story, beginning in Paris inis told through the mind and feelings of Frederic Moreau, a young man dissatisfied with the life expected of him by his middle class environment. Moreau is youthful romantic, consumed with his grand fantasies, lacking self-discipline, a character whom Flaubert does not succeed in making attractive.
Probably he does not intend to do so. In fact, Moreau ends up seeming self-indulgent and even ludicrous, and this reader at least finds himself losing patience with the character. Why is Flaubert doing this, since one must assume that he is fully aware of how Moreau is received by the reader? Where is the story heading, and what complications will be introduced?
Having returned from Paris home to the provinces under the understanding that his family has become impoverished, Frederic unexpectedly receives an inheritance from an uncle, enabling him to return to Paris only to find his relationships with former acquaintances altered and his unrequited infatuation with Mme Arnoux dwindling.
A life of dissipation seems increasingly attractive, Frederic having no other obvious aspirations or purpose. He immediately plunges into debt and frequents high society, even as he experiences it as trivial and banal. Indeed, high society is portrayed as vapid, superficial, cruel, and vulgar, and Frederic is as dissatisfied with it as he is entranced and attracted to its apparent prestige.
And, I must confess, the novel seems as tedious as the society it depicts. Throughout the novel, has any character been presented who is admirable? Of major characters only Madame Arnoux, whom Frederic desires but who seems unobtainable. The tenor of the story shifts somewhat when Flaubert describes the fall of the monarchy and establishment of the republic during the Revolution ofevents finally moving away from a singular focus on Moreau.
The period is described as a chaos of movements and interest groups vying for power and influence, most of them being petty and self-interested, not unlike what we see in contemporary politics and society.
I found this section of the book much more interesting than the previous singular focus on the rather unattractive Frederic. His dreams and aspirations turned to dust, in the penultimate chapter Frederic has a final meeting with Madame Arnoux, during which they acknowledge their love for one another and part forever.
One can hardly resist comparing this novel with Madame Bovarydentimentale I must confess that it suffers by the comparison. Emma, while foolish, was at least a xentimentale sympathetic character, whereas Frederic never is. It is certainly not necessary that the protagonist of a novel be likeable, and Frederic was certainly consistent in his callowness, but other than successfully demonstrating this consistency and its consequences, Flaibert has done little more than provide a skillful mastery of plot and language, in my opinion.
The book was not entirely new, but wasn’t the traditional french book you would normally read. With regard to Flaubert’s writing in ‘Madame Bovary’, this book flauvert its characters were more complex and greatly unpredictable.
While almost all other French books of his time deal with the same ideas, he changed the perspective of the reader when his initial argument was the crisis of a man in his early twenties; lost, uncertain, and with confused sentiments that leave the reader as perplexed as Fredr The book was not entirely new, but wasn’t the traditional french book you would normally read. While almost all other French books of his time deal with the same ideas, he changed the edhcazione of the reader when his initial argument was the crisis of a man in his early twenties; lost, uncertain, and with confused sentiments that leave the reader sentimehtale perplexed as Fredrick who cannot decide, form the sentumentale of the book, who and why he loves and what he is to do with his life, even when he is educaizone his late forties, he still drags us long in his unusual and unexplained decisions.
And unlike most of the french books I read, or most of the books I read in general, he did not plunge into the love affair as soon as book started but kept me wondering when his chance will come, and surprisingly still, when his chance did come, he was confused again, and refused it, to the great misfortune of the readers anticipation.
Fredrick is the pain and loss we feel, all of us in our youthand maybe will for the rest of our lives. A mix of the political and the personal, with the former taking up too much space. Perhaps they’re historically relevant and illuminating for those who want to know what people cared about in tumultuous s France, but the endless debates become tedious and aren’t as compelling as the anguished love life of the callow protagonist.
Unfortunately even he wears thin, and I just wanted to shake some sense into him most of the time. Flaubert’s descriptions of places, objects, food, landscapes, A mix of the political and the ecucazione, with the former taking up too much space.
