Essay title: Madame Bovary
Emma has a strong relationship with the novels she reads. The first thing that we pick up on is the adultery. We see Emma cheat on Charles with Leon and Rodolphe. I think that a main reason she took part in these affairs was because of the characters in the novels she read. She thought that by cheating she found true love while it only led her to get into more debt and tell even more lies.
These books caused Emma to live a screwed up life and in the end the results are not as good for Emma as maybe some of the endings from the books she read. We see the notion of Science pick up at the beginning of Chapter Two. They arrive at a small town called Yonville. They give us in-depth descriptions of what they see. “The most eye-catching sight of all is across the street from the Lion d’Or Inn: Monsieur Homais’ Pharmacy. To me this is surprising because they compared this to a church, highway, and other important places.
I can say that if I was walking in an unfamiliar place and saw a church on one side and a pharmacy on the other, the church would catch my eye without a doubt. This leads to a big event in the book. Hippolyte has clubfoot, so Monsieur Homais wants Charles to try a new treatment for the clubfoot. Charles decides that he will perform this treatment on Hippolyte after heavy pressure from Monsieur Homais. Charles does the treatment there was little blood and no sign of pain, from what everyone thought this was a success and a big step in science. Now everybody is high in spirits and was praising the men of science.
“Hail to those tireless spirits of mankind” and “Hail to our magnanimous men of science”. However five days later everything.
