The Emma Bovary Trial

The Emma Bovary Trial

On January 31, 1857, Gustave Flaubert was sat on the dock in Paris for crimes against public morality and religion. But the real defendant was, in fact Emma Bovary, the disgraced, passionate heroine of his novel. She was guilty of the unforgivable "crime" of wanting to live her life as she wished it. Flaubert was acquitted, but the scandal that surrounded his work made Emma immortal.
