Draft Pages from Madame Bovary.


There’s not much more to say about Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary that hasn’t already been said, or that wouldn’t make me sound like the protagonist in John Cheever’s “An Educated American Woman”. But it’s always interesting to see how thoughts (and pain, and headaches, and heartaches) evolve on the handwritten page. Most of Flaubert’s draft pages may be found here, though I’ve yet to figure out how to download the file.
