A solitary child, he was attracted to literature at an early age, and after his recovery from a nervous breakdown suffered while a law student, he turned his total energies to writing.

She wore a wide straw hat with red ribbons which fluttered in the wind behind her. Her black tresses, twining around the edges of her large brows, descended very low, and seemed amorously to press the oval of her face.

The competition is the Oxford Classics version by Douglas Parmee. Given that L'EDUCATION is one of the greatest novels of the 19th century, reading the best translation is imperative if you're not Francophone.

Robert Baldick's version, here under review, was made over 50 years ago, not long before Baldick's untimely death at age 47. In this edition it's been revised, though only minimally, by Geoffrey Wall.

Compared with Parmee, Baldick is more literal. If you're looking for a trot, Baldick's is the version to buy.

On the other hand, it reads beautifully and even with my imperfect understanding of French, I think it's an excellent translation, as close to Flaubert as you're going to find in English.

But, honestly, the same could be said of Parmee's less literal version. No writer goes into another language without some loses, particularly a stylist like Flaubert, but if you read either Baldick or Parmee, you're going to get the essence of Flaubert's masterpiece.

In fact, you should read both. Ford Madox Ford said that L'EDUCATION should be read at least 14 times to be thorougly appreciated (apparently he was superstitious about the number 13). Reading two English translations is a lot less daunting, and who knows? you might want to reread one or both of them.

It's no spoiler to say that there's no plot in this rambling but sharp snapshot of mid-1800's Paris. There characters feel like they stepped right out of early 21th century Los Angeles or Brooklyn. Caught in a scene that celebrates itself, everyone in this book is a raging opportunist, willing to sell out all their friends and principles to get ahead, but nobody is really very good at it. Sure, Frederic and Rosanette would like to be in Dangerous Liasons, juggling lovers and champagne - but they're just not smart enough! And that's precisely what makes it so funny. To wonderful comic effect (or tragic, depending on your point of view), Flaubert illustrates that people don't change, no matter the time or the place. Throughout, the writing is evocative and almost dreamlike, though its subjects...not so much. They're just messes.

Remarkable novel. Historical background strangely placed at the end of this edition.

The personal story of Frederick Moreau and the political setting of mid-19th century Paris reflect one another in the unfulfilled promise of his obsession with a married woman and the revolution's unfulfilled promise of reform and change.

The novel offers little in the way of character development and that may be the entire point. Since Moreau's sentimental obsession with Madame Arnoux drives the action to a large degree and he never lets go of it despite his experience he is a study in arrested development. He lives through tulmutuous times , witnesses fortunes made and lost and yet in the end returns with his boyhood friend to where he began and seems to have absorbed no lesson from any of it.

Flaubert's prose is eloquent and at times incredibly poetic in it's descriptions of settings and expression of feelings and the translation here is excellent.

A definite master piece for readers that have some grasp of the classics. Taken in the context of a classic literary debate on human nature I could appreciate this book. a real window to the French zeitgeist of Flaubert's times, and influential even on the present state of the French weltanschauung. He points at the nature of human beings, which was a bit disparaging of a verdict, or was it? Was it just the way things are in a nonjudgmental way. He gave some wonderful snap-shots of life in Paris around 1848 and seemed to give an objective view of a critical, if not underrated, moment in world history. Human nature is a conniving/duplicitous one and more than likely people become victims of their own connivances. Those who are singularly minded were rather boring and shallow. However, for Flaubert, like Goethe, friendship and love still, somehow, remain in tact as the highest virtue even through all the muck, egotism, and self-rightousness the book describes -- but, one could argue, Flaubert arrives there by more legitimate means than some other great authors who have pointed in that direction.
He seemed to be debating directly with the great works of the past, actually there are many parallels to Dickens "Great Expectations". and Goethe's "The Sorrows of Young Werther" These books are hinted at. It is stated that someone has no "expectations" (Dickens) and "The Sorrows" is more directly talked about on p. 413. Flaubert in debate with great authors, and not taken for his sadistic qualities, works quite well. This book, juxtaposed, to the two aforementioned books would be great topics of discussion; also Maslow "theories of peak experiences" seem apropos to mention in the context of a discussion on this book. Flaubert was saying, to me, that one is essentially born with a nature, or at the least it develops early on, and behaviors show themselves in various circular patterns of endeavor. The story of his youth, at the end, is a micro pattern of macro reoccurring events throughout the book. Frederic's idealization of Madame Arnoux saves him from a worse fate than Wether's idealization of Charlotte: Werther ends up committing suicide for his love, however, Frederic is possibly saved from a fate worse than death.
Flaubert's foray into the forest (323) it is filled with symbolism, and seemed like key pages that I didn't grasp well. I am sure I will come back to this book again.

Even with lots of characters and written with the most accurate details it is impossible to abandon this novel until the amazing end.
