Flaubert and the Pictorial Arts by Adrianne Tooke

Book Description

This is the first book ever to be written about the relationship between Flauberts writing and pictorial art. Flauberts responses to a wide range of pictorial images, from classical to popular, were both powerful and ambivalent, with insights, in many instances, of an extraordinary modernity, and intuitions of an art of the future. This study traces the processes by which pictorial art penetrates the very fibre of Flauberts writing. Viewed by Flaubert as the sister art, pictorial art is for him both rival and foil. This study casts significant new light on the poetic system of a major writer, and adds a new dimension to the study of the literary and aesthetic sensibilities of the mid-nineteenth century.

Sentimental Education by Adrianne Tooke Sentimental Education, Paperback (December 2001)

Set against the backdrop of the 1848 Revolution, this is the story of young lawyer Frederic Moreau's infatuation with the demurely exotic Madame Arnoux. This ironic depiction of uneventful lives in a troubled period of European history is considered one of the greatest novels of the 19th century.
