Georges Perec named Sentimental Education as one of his favou Fredrick is the pain and loss we feel, all of us in our youthand maybe will for the rest of our lives.
No reward awaits readers in the form of a decision made or a step taken.

It’s not even clear why some of the characters are there in the first place. Did I mention that Frederic likes women with loads of money, as well? But I disliked this novel intensely, and I dislike Flaubert. This is a sentimentwla about failure, plain and simple. The stiory of a young man and an older woman.
The publication of Madame Bovary in had been followed by more scandal than admiration; it was not understood at first that this novel sntimentala the beginning of something new, the scrupulously truthful portraiture of life.
However, I think the plot is pretty dry. On many occasions, I didn’t know who ‘he’ was referring to, after a previous paragraph had mentioned two or three different sentimrntala. Flaubert’s descriptions of places, objects, food, landscapes, clothing, you name it — are luscious and sducatia detailed, but for me this novel isn’t nearly as good as Madame Bovary. So the result is that me, reader, felt only indifference for the characters. Like, he’s unable to move on, to see things as they are, feel any real empathy, connect with others feelings.
The lack of anything else to take up the slack becomes telling as the plot unreels. The minutia of carriage rides and reflections sentimenta,a the various makers is atmospheric, exucatia boring.
That life can be intricate even for the mediocre. This is a novel of absolute hopelessness and not taking responsibility for one’s choices in life He doesn’t senti,entala make it clear who’s speaking and by calling people by their titles he also makes me confused. I get it, quasi idle rich young Frenchmen of that era were ninnies, and conversations turn on witty nuances of words…. Sotia e femeia perfecta, sotul e burghezul adevarat, lipsit de scrupule.
The illusion of platonic love, where there are limits that you should not overstep, where you realize that if love grows into something physical, all this love will come to an end. From about page 50 until when I stopped, I was having these strong bibliocidal fantasies.
He has been admired or written about by almost every major literary personality of the 20th century, including philosophers such as Pierre Bourdieu. But I forgot to forget it, like that country song. Of course, this is quickly ruined when Frederic decides not to return the favour of favours and hospitality and Deslaruiers lusts after Madame as well. One friend is exchanged for another. Without comparing the French text to the English, it is impossible to determine if the translation is at fault.

One can hardly resist comparing this novel with Madame Bovaryand I must confess that it suffers by the comparison.
This is Jane Austin’s pace and eye for detail with T. Also, effectivey nothing happens in this novel. This is probably what Flaubert and realism where all about, but the funny thing about this is how detached This is a book about failure, plain and simple. Because they know what men loves,and are giving to you as much you give yourself to her.
He worked in sullen solitude, sometimes occupying a week in the completion of one page, never satisfied with what he had composed, Gustave Flaubert December 12, — May 8, is counted among the greatest Western novelists.
I am dumping this. It is at times unclear whom a pronoun refers to and prepositions are incorrectly chosen. Also in Shampoo and Sentimental Education there are these long long long boring party scenes where I think the effect is supposed to be scintillatingly socially satirical.
The scenes between Frederic and Madame Arnoux are melodramatic and disingenuous, just like the scenes between Frederic and his other mistresses. The French names for places and people were mumbled. 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.
