It shows you that the only right thing a writer can do is patiently strive towards quality. Flaubert teaches you that being "a diamond in the rough" just isn't enough and it rhymes too! You have to work hard, nurture your style and even more so your mind.

Just half a year ago, I was absolutely bummed out for not winning at this literary contest. Now that I think of it, it's better that way. My novel wasn't as good as I wanted it to be and I knew I could do better. So I'm going to act like Flaubert and never publish anything until I'm completely satisfied with my work. And since I, too, am a mad perfectionist, it will take some time. Having read only works from his youth, it really comes as a surprise he became a realist writer when he was all about Romanticism.

I thought about giving it a 5 star rating, but it just isn't "perfect" enough and Flaubert knew it, that's why he never published it. So I won't try making it look like he made a mistake for not publishing it, and just give it 4 stars. In spite of that torment with translation, I did enjoy it. Discover new books on Goodreads.

Les mémoires d'un fou
Refresh and try again. Much ado about nothing Reading this was a pure mental abuse. Flaubert and I yes, my dear Yugoslavian friends, this is a reference to THAT movie I already read November and it's one of my favorite books, so you could say I was pretty eager to read Memoirs of a Madman. Quintessence of dust More interesting than his meticulous technique is Flaubert's philosophy, the questions he asked himself, which were way ahead of his age AND time. Are you the creator of your physical and moral constitution? No, you could be in total control of it only if you had made and modelled it in your own manner.
You claim to be free because you have a soul? Well, it is you who have made this discovery which you are incapable of defining.

An inner voice tells you so. But you lie, and a voice tells you that you are weak, and you feel within yourself an immense emptiness that you would like to be able to fill with all the things that you throw in there.
And even if you did believe in it, are you sure? Who told you so? When, after a long struggle between two opposing feelings, and long hesitation and doubt, you lean towards one of them, you believe that you are the master of your own decision. But, to be master, it would be necessary to feel no leaning at all.
Are you master of your good actions when you have the taste of evil deep in your heart, and when you have been born with unpleasant dispositions that your upbringing has fostered? And if you are virtuous, if you are horrified of crime, could you carry one out? Not knowing how to use their leisure, they busy themselves with one abortive experiment after another and plunge successively into scientific farming, archaeology, chemistry, and historiography, as well as taking an abandoned child into their care. Everything goes wrong because their futile book learning cannot compensate for their lack of judgment.
Flaubert has been accused of presenting them as imbeciles, but in fact he expresses his compassion for them: Through their inquisitiveness their understanding grows; having had more ideas, they suffered more.
Flaubert died suddenly of an apoplectic stroke. He left on his table an unfinished page and notes for the second volume of his novel. The matter that they chose to transcribe was the subject of the notes: There has been much controversy about this bitter conclusion, as the form that it was to take was left undetermined in the notes Flaubert left, though the materials were gathered and have been published.
He worked slowly and carefully, and, as he worked, his idea of his art became gradually more exact. His letters to Louise Colet, written while he was working on Madame Bovary , show how his attitude changed. Composition for him was a real anguish. Flaubert sought objectivity above all else in his writing: We welcome suggested improvements to any of our articles.
