Bibliography Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Jean-Paul Satre discusses Flaubert's personal development, his relationship with each member of his family, his decision to become a writer, and the psychosomatic crisis or 'conversion' that liberated him from his father's domination and enabled him to devote himself to his art. Sartre's psychoanalytic approach merges with a sociological study of the ideology of the period, the crisis in literature, and Flaubert's role as one both influenced by all this and himself influencing the future of literature. Translated by Carol Cosman.
