Realists by writing books that focused on the details of everyday life without disregarding the most unwelcome aspects of it challenged their romantic predecessors who rather decorated their writings with sentimentalism, subjectivity and gothicism. All rights reserved. Mustafa Bal 44 writing from the romantic strain.
However, he incorporates elements from both realism and romanticism, the united forces of which, enhancing his prose, creates a paradox as well. He both uses and distances these modes from his writing and his viewpoint on his art.
However, Flaubert can never be completely labeled as a realist or a romantic writer. On the other hand, unlike his contemporaries, Flaubert recognized a personal impulse for romanticism and reflected it in Madame Bovary, although in an ironic manner of recognizing its deficiencies.
Some parts of his notes from the work read as: In my book I do not want there to be a single movement, or a single reflection of the author. Let us absorb the objective; let it circulate in us, until it is externalized in such a way that no one can understand this marvelous chemistry. Our hearts should serve only to understand the hearts of others. Let us be magnifying mirrors of external truth. I believe that Great Art is scientific and impersonal. Monsieur Bournisien, stronger than he, went on moving his lips gently for some time, then insensibly his chin sank down, he let fall his big black boot, and began to snore.
They sat opposite one another, with protruding stomachs, puffed-up faces, and frowning looks, after so much disagreement uniting at last in the same human weakness, and they moved no more than the corpse by their side, that seemed to be sleeping. The dichotomy between the real and the imagined in the case of the characterization of Emma Bovary is basically hidden in the context of a world of opposites she is put in: the plain country life, the stifling convent education, and later an unsatisfying marriage clash with her nature open for novelty, romanticism, and imaginative thinking.
How does Emma directly indulge in this confusion?
Madame Bovary .
The basic motive which creates the confusion between reality and her imagination is her quixotic character: her reading of books which are considered by the society to be dangerous for a woman to read. She reads books — sources of her romantic aspirations with which she pictures a new identity for herself. The reason why Flaubert chooses to have a reader-protagonist might lie under the fact that, through reading, Flaubert has the chance of creating a proper dilemma for his woman character.
Her reading is considered to be dangerous and even evil. Likewise, Homais warns Justin thinking that he corrupts his children through some harmful texts: "Have you every vice, then, little wretch?
Take care! He is already formed like a man. Are you quite sure, anyhow, that they have not read it? Already bored with the life, first in Tostes then in Yonville, she sets herself apart from the society claiming for herself superiority in intelligence, emotions, and imagination. In this way, she tries to break the narrow domestic sphere she has been confined to. Charles and Emma actually share a similar past in that they both had a forced education.
Similarly, Emma, abandoning the rule books of the convent, would turn to imaginative literature, novels, and romances. The subject matters of these books, which she read in her puberty, covered erotic presentations of adventures and intrigues.
Madame Bovary .
Later, in her affairs, Emma expects to find the same kind of sexual experiences mingled with adventure, which is a way of explanation for her adulterous nature. Carla Peterson argues that through reading Emma perceives abstractions and generalizations as concrete and specific images which she takes literally, trying to transport them to the real life by her imagination which is incapable of synthesizing to unite these ideal images of the world of books as a coherent whole Thus, it can be claimed that while Emma has the ambition and energy to fancy a world built upon her interior, she lacks the true judgment artistic imagination of the formation of such a Mustafa Bal 48 world in the exterior, which totally paves the way for her confusion between the worlds of reality and her imagination.
Peterson gives a similar clarification for her confusion between the real world and the imaginative world in her following words: Objects and figures seem to be imprisoned at a great distance from her, frozen like the forms on the decorated plates that have become permanently engraved in her imagination…This detached pose of a viewer of pictures, coupled with the distanced perspective from which Emma reads her romances, clearly testifies her inability to maintain an active relationship with her texts or pictures.
So instead of immersing herself in situations portrayed in her novels, Emma draws these situations out of the fictional realm and seeks them in real life. In this sense, in Madame Bovary letter writing, journalism, and books are what make reality less reliable because writing is the agent of fantasy.
She became herself, as it were, an actual part of these imaginings, and realized the love- dream of her youth as she saw herself in this type of amorous women whom she had so envied. In addition, her continuing of writing romantic letters to Leon although she is aware of the fact that their relationship is almost dead also demonstrates to what extent writing and reading the written in Madame Bovary falsifies reality for Emma. More times than not, she is indiscreet and becomes the talk of the town, the subject of many gossips.
However, her husband is blindfolded by his love, and not even for a moment suspects his wife. However, her affection soon becomes too strong, and it starts suffocating her lover. She continually borrows money and showers him with gifts, and she begins to romanticize the idea of running off together.
But, he is not sharing her enthusiasm about their future and leaves her. She becomes so desperate and falls ill because of her emotional health.
In the meantime, her husband is struggling to pay off her debts and plans to take her to an opera in a nearby town, hoping to cheer her up. There, she meets Leon again, and their romantic feelings return. But this time, Emma has no boundaries, and nothing stops her anymore to embark on a love affair with him.
This makes her go back to her own habits, and she gets deeper in depth. She also grows careless, and in a few instances, she is almost discovered by her acquaintances. As time passes, Emma stops finding her love affair with Leon amusing. However, she does not know how to leave him, so she becomes more demanding. While she is obsessing over her feelings, her debts increase, and her property is in danger of being seized.
She gets even more desperate and tries to get money to different men around time, even trying to prostitute herself. However, she does not succeed , and not knowing what to do anymore, she commits suicide poisoning herself. Madame Bovary Epilogue After the death of his wife, Charles Bovary cannot accept the truth that everybody else knows. He even idealizes her memory, but after some time he is forced to face the truth, as he finds the letters she got from Leon and Rodolphe.
He passes away alone in his garden, and his daughter leaves to work in a cotton mill. Like in France, the American 19th century gender roles were strongly influenced by the idea of separate sphere for men and women.
Based on the ideology of separate sphere, women were bound to the domestic sphere, while men were free to move between spaces: the domestic and the public spheres Morgan, The domestic sphere bound women to engage in household management and caring for the children. Edna firstly, finds herself tired of the monotony of marital life which mainly demands her to devote herself to her husband and family. She feels that there must be something else she deserves to get and she realizes that life is not merely associated to marriage and motherhood.
Thus she decides to struggle for her personal freedom and a life of her own in which she can do as she pleases. It seems that Edna is only a valuable possession for her husband collection and not an individual human being. Pontellier was beginning to realize her position in the universe as a human being, and to recognize her relations as an individual to the world within and about her p.
What are you doing out here, Edna? He had walked up with Madame Lebrun and left her at the house. His wife did not reply.
Pontellier from within, after a few moments had gone by.
a study of provincial life
You must come into the house instantly. Pontellier uses high intonation, Edna still does not just go in and adhere to the command of her husband. Her persistence has made Mr. Pontellier exercise his power to forbid her from staying outside and order her to get into the house.
This incident might be trivial but the triviality and the power being exercised emphasize the inequal power relation between the contemporary husband and wife.
This kind of rejection continues to take place in many occasions, such as when Mr. Ponteliier just coming from working, he asks Edna to see one of their boys in his room because he is quite sure that their boy has fever.
However, Edna rejects her husband command and says that their boy is perfectly well when he goes to bed. Pontellier returned to his wife with the information that Raoul had a high fever and needed looking after. Then he lit a cigar and went and sat near the open door to smoke it.
Pontellier was quite sure Raoul had no fever. He had gone to bed perfectly well, she said, and nothing had ailed him all day. She perceived that her will had blazed up, stubborn and resistant. She could not at that moment have done other than denied and resisted. She wondered if her husband had ever spoken to her like that before, and if 4 porch hammock 9 she had submitted to his command.
Of course she had; she remembered that she had. But she could not realize why or how she should yielded, feeling as she then did. She binds to her husband and she has to always conform to him. Furthermore, when she is vacationing at Grand Isle with her family, she develops a close relationship to Robert Lebrun, a younger single man, whose mother owns the resorts at Grand Isle.
Edna and Robert spend their time together; they walk together and exchange long and pleasurable conversations.
Edna enjoys their togetherness and begins to develop romantic feeling to Robert. She is no longer showing her attention to their children; she becomes ignorant.
If one of the little Pontellier boys took a tumble whilst at play, he was not apt to rush crying to his mother's arm for comfort; he would more likely pick himself up, wipe the water out of his eyes and the sand out of his mouth, and go on playing.
Pontellier was not a mother-woman. The mother- women seemed to prevail that summer at Grand Isle.
It was easy to know them, fluttering about with extended, protecting wings when any harm, real or imaginary, threatened their precious brood. They were women who idolized their children, worshiped their husbands, and esteemed it a holy privilege to efface themselves as individuals and grow wings as ministering angels.
It was the first time she had admitted it, and a glow overspread her face, blotching it with red spots.
Therefore, through the ways Edna escapes from her limitations as a nineteenth century American woman, Edna is depicted as a rebel. Pontellier, who is originally a Creole. Coming from a non-Creole family, caused Edna feels little bit strange with this community. She is not able to adapt and blend into this community; hence it leads her to feel unhappy with her current social position. Pontellier, though she had married a Creole, was not thoroughly at home in the society of Creoles; never before had she been thrown so intimately among them p.
In comparison, both novels represent women who are discontented with their life, especially their marital life. Both main female characters, as previously elaborated, are married and dissatisfied with their lives after marriage although the primary causes of this dissatisfaction is different in each.
Similarly, both act against the common social prescription of gender. They both nearly abandon their marriage and current family to pursue their self determination. The escape route being taken is also similar — that they are engaged in extramarital love affairs. These similarities cannot be simply taken for granted.
While this study will not go as far as arguing that Chopin as a writer is highly influenced by Flaubert, it can be argued that in the 19th century, both in America and France, the norms applied in regards to marriage and womanhood are more or less similar as they are represented in both novels under study.
Both women are main characters, who are the centers of the story. This signifies that their deeds are the spring of plot development.
The world in the story revolves around them. When a story is considered as an echo of life and a means of didactic method to the contemporary society, it can mean that this case of women dissatisfaction with contemporary 19th idea of womanhood and class is real and people have to learn from the lives of these characters.
Yet, while Flaubert dooms the romantic love pursuit of Emma, Chopin tends to portray the liberty of Edna in her pursuit of freedom despite the social pressure.
Emma is willing to do anything to get what she desires without considering the feeling of the people around her, especially her husband and her daughter. It seems that Emma is already blinded by her own romantic pursuit. She is more or less looking for sexual satisfaction from her lovers.
Edna Pontellier moreover, she is still able to control herself than Emma. Initially, when Edna is engaged in affairs, she is aiming to find the figure of man who understands her individual rights.
In building the relationship she is not only looking for sexual desire. It is a very unusual attitude to love and sex, it can be said a masculine one, because women usually connect tightly the relationship and sex, while men are able to detach these two. She feels she does not fit them, in terms of the ways of thinking and the lifestyle. A characteristic which distinguished them and which impressed Mrs. Pontellier most forcibly was their entire absence of prudery.
Their freedom of expression was at first incomprehensible to her, though she had no difficulty in reconciling it with a lofty chastity which in the Creole woman seems t be inborn and unmistakable. However, the ways being chosen by each author in ending the lives of these characters are different.
Next she began to moan, feebly at first. A violent attack of shivering made her shoulders shake, and she has turned whiter than the sheet at which her rigid fingers kept clawing. Her erratic pulse was now almost imperceptible.
Sweat was dripping from her blue-tinged face, which looked as if it had been glazed in the fumes of some metallic vapour. Her teeth were chattering, her dilated eyes stares vaguely round her, and her sole reply to every question was a mere nod; she even smiled a few times.They went up to his room and settled down; the flies and moths fluttered round the candle. He pulled out from his wool cap with grey top-knots a letter wrapped up in a rag and pre- sented it gingerly to Charles, who rested on his elbow on the pillow to read it.
She kept a desk there in which Kodolphe's letters were locked. Coffee was brought in; he thought no more about her. This thesis employs comparative literature method with feminist approach.
The river, that makes of this quarter of Rouen a wretched little Venice, flowed beneath him, between the bridges and the railings, yellow, violet, or blue. Emma blushed as he entered, and she gave a little forced laugh to keep herself in countenance.
