Emma Bovary is beautiful and bored, trapped in her marriage to a mediocre doctor and stifled by the banality of provincial life.
An ardent reader of sentimental novels, she longs for passion and seeks escape in fantasies of high romance, in voracious spending and, eventually, in adultery.
But even her affairs bring her disappointment and the consequences are devastating.
Flaubert's erotically charged novel caused a moral outcry on its publication in 1857.
