Gustave Flaubert was born in Rouen in 1821 into a petty bourgeois family. After studying law, which did not interest him much, he turned to writing and got down to writing his novel Madame Bovary. Published in 1856, the work revolutionized romantic writing with its realistic style but earned him a trial, from which he was acquitted, for insulting public morality and good morals. In 1862, he also met with success thanks to Salammbô, while in 1869, L'Education sentimentale was poorly received by critics. Exhausted by his nervous illness and his financial problems, the writer died in Croisset on May 8, 1880, leaving unfinished the great satirical work Bouvard and Pécuchet which he had started in June 1874.
