Summary note:
Michel Winock situates Flaubert in France's century of great democratic transition. Wary of the masses, Flaubert rejected universal suffrage, but above all he hated the vulgar, ignorant bourgeoisie, a class that embodied every vice of the democratic age. His loathing became a fixation--and a source of literary inspiration.-- Provided by publisher.
