Because they know what men loves,and are giving to you as much you give yourself to her.

The older Ladies know all that-that’s experience. Because of that ,I would rather choose a hot 34 year old Woman than the teenage girl with the age of See 1 question about Sentimental Education….

Lists with This Book. Sep 30, Paul Bryant rated it did not like it Aentimental From about page 50 until when I stopped, I was having these strong bibliocidal fantasies. I thought — maybe I will leave this accidentally on the bus to work. But I forgot to forget it, like that country song. Then I thought — maybe a column of army ants will chomp it up so that not a shred remains.

But army ants are never seen in Nottingham, only the friendly variety who bid you good day as they pass by. I tried to donate my copy to Oxfam but the shop assistant, having turned very pale when she saw the title, summoned up a courage I had not thought her to possess and said they could not accept that particular title.

Sentimental Education

When I asked why she referred me to the Oxfam standard operating procedures, something about health and safety, which includes of course mental health. They had accepted copies of Sentimental Education in previous years but there had been some incidents and now all shops had been explicitly warned not to.

I see that many of my most respected GR friends hand out the big four and five stars to this novel and describe it as brilliantly comic. I was trembling in my boots until I found that none other than Henry James was on my side. Here is his considered opinion: Here the form and senntimental are the same as in “Madame Bovary”; the studied skill, the science, the accumulation of material, are even more striking; but the book is in a single word a dead one.

L’Education Sentimentale is elaborately and massively dreary. That a novel should have a certain charm seems to us the most rudimentary of principles, and there is no more charm in this laborious monument to a treacherous ideal than there is interest in a heap of gravel.


However I wentimental notice something eucacion Henry James did not notice, and felt quite smug about that. It is this — that the main part of the plot of Sentimental Education is almost the same as edhcacion plot of Shampoothe Warren Beattie movie fromwhich I saw flaubertt last week so it was fresh in my memory.

Naturally George is shagging Felicia as it would seem unkind not to, and, because he keeps bumping into Jackie as they move in the same social circles, he realises he never wanted to break up with her so eduaccion starts shagging Jackie as well.


And she educafion played by none other than 19 year old Carrie Fisher, two years before Princess Leia. What a shock that was. Just like in Shampoo, except that George the hairdresser was a lot less dreary. Also in Shampoo and Sentimental Education there are these long long long boring party scenes where I think the effect is supposed to be scintillatingly socially satirical. If I am ever taken hostage and this is the only reading material available in my rat infested dungeon then I will definitely finish this.

The story focuses on the romantic life of a young man at the time of the Senhimental Revolution of As was the case with Madame Bovaryeduvacion I read recently, this book demanded to be commented on as I read, so I posted lots of quips and quotes in the updates. And since it’s a busy time of the year, I’m going to incorporate some of those updates into the review – apologies to those of you who’ve seen them already. His male friends don’t know either and they constantly pull him in different directions in an effort to find out.

And although she’s a very faithful spouse to M. The text underneath Daumier’s sketch says that since women now wear skirts made of steel, men would need to be made of rubber to give them their arm in the street!

Daumier intends to be funny of course, and you might argue that Flaubert is being serious much of the time.

But even when Flaubert sentmiental describing something potentially sedate or serious, he makes me laugh. So when I came on this description of the kind of elaborate curtsies people make in polite society, I couldn’t help matching the passage with another Daumier cartoon: And of course, Daumier just happens to have a witty cartoon about a grouse too: Has Daumier such a scene? The more I looked for correspondences between Flaubert’s and Daumier’s scenes, the more I found.

And he’s not even Rosanette’s lover as yet! Complications seem to follow him about! C’est une question purement individuelle. Que le peuple soit plus moral, et il sera moins pauvre! Daumier was obviously at the same dinner!

Selon ta promesse, nous comptons sur toi. Il faut que je te parle avant la manifestation. Daumier has some great caricatures of Louis Philippe as the ‘poire’, ripe for harvesting: So Paris is in uproar and people are on the sentikental Did he answer the call? Hmm, he has his own way of addressing Reform. He decides to stop shilly-shallying and to finally sleep with Rosanette his passion for Mme Arnoux being still unconsummated: He searches for them in the Palace which the People have invaded, and comes on a crazy scene in which a group of people try out the throne for size: A little further on, Flaubert describes a granite quarry in terms that make it resemble a long-forgotten ruined city, a Sodom and Gomorrah: Un bruit de fer, des coups drus et nombreux sonnaient: One compromise he’s faced with is marrying a rich widow: Well, like Liberty, she does turn up – when least expected: Still, their meeting towards the end of flaubwrt book provides a sweet scene in which the two finally admit their deep love for each other: According to Flaubert’s account, it did seem as if a lot of time was spent howling at the moon during those decades!

L’Education Sentimentale is well known to be one of Woody Allen’s favourite books, and it explores one of Allen’s favourite themes. Whether life is a tragedy or a comedy depends on hair-fine nuances. Melinda and Melinda is probably the clearest example: A bit later, he redid the idea in a more convincing way, as the linked pair Match Point the erucacion and Scoop the comedy.

In the same spir L’Education Sentimentale is well known to be one of Woody Allen’s favourite books, and it explores one of Allen’s favourite themes. In the same spirit, here’s a linked pair of reviews.

I wrote the tragic one first, but then felt that I really needed to balance it with a comic version. Thou turn’st mine eyes into my very soul; And there I see such black and grained spots As will not leave their tinct.

I’m afraid it’s not exactly a fun beach read.

If L’Education Sentimentale doesn’t make you feel uneasy, you’re either a remarkably secure person or you decided to quit before reaching the end. And Flaubert does a good job of sneaking up on you: On the surface, it’s unremarkable, except for the lovely prose.

After a chance meeting on a boat, he conceives a passion for Mme. Arnoux, educacikn beautiful married woman. He manages to insinuate himself into her husband’s social circle, and becomes friendly with him. After a while, M. I’ll try to avoid dropping any more spoilers, but I thought I should convince you that it’s definitely not a book where nothing happens: So, why’s it so disquieting? One way to explain is to compare with two other novels, which were written not long after and certainly, at least in part, were inspired by it.

Arnoux, but by the end of the novel he’s got over her; we get a detailed account of how her charm gradually fades away, so that he can finally see her objectively.
