Madame Bovary

Provincial Manners

Gustave Flaubert
Translated by Margaret Mauldon, Edited by Malcolm Bowie, and Notes by Mark Overstall

Oxford World's Classics

  • The new translation by award-winning translator Margaret Mauldon replaces the slightly old-fashioned one by Gerard Hopkins. Mauldon perfectly captures Flaubert's famously pared-down style to produce a faithful and carefully nuanced translation.
  • Respected critic and writer Malcolm Bowie has written a wide-ranging and original new introduction to the novel.
  • Updated bibliography.
  • Revised notes.
  • Madame Bovary consistently appears in lists of the best novels of all time and has been frequently adapted for radio and television.
