Description: Emma, the main heroine of the novel Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert, is bored with the emptiness and ordinariness of the provincial life, so she engages in the extramarital affair hoping to change the circumstances. After the book had been published, the author and two editors were accused of the moral abuse and brought to trial. But the trial ended in acquittal, and the scandalous reputation made the novel widely popular. The true value of the work by Gustave Flaubert is in its details and manner of a plot delivery.
