    Before marriage she thought herself in love but the happiness that should have followed this love not having come, she must, she thought, have been mistaken And Emma tried to find out what one meant exactly in life by the words felicity, passion, rapture, that had seemed to her so beautiful in books You might be surprised to learn that I was mesmerized by Emma s life story I was mesmerized and suffered along with her as she capsized further and further into the ambushes life presented herBefore marriage she thought herself in love but the happiness that should have followed this love not having come, she must, she thought, have been mistaken And Emma tried to find out what one meant exactly in life by the words felicity, passion, rapture, that had seemed to her so beautiful in books You might be surprised to learn that I was mesmerized by Emma s life story I was mesmerized and suffered along with her as she capsized further and further into the ambushes life presented her Yes, I felt like I was in a trance and could not escape Oh, Emma, dear Emma, why do people hate you so Why did you make them feel that way I am sorry for being so blunt You, and your seemingly shallow priorities, gave your critics plenty of ammunition You did the unthinkable What excuse did you have for such a selfish, impulsive and futile behavior Did you by any chance hear Virginia Woolf sayYou cannot find peace by avoidi...

    Since I read Quicksand by Nella Larsen this week, Emma Bovary started haunting my mind yet again We are old friends, Emma and I I spent hours and hours over a dictionary at age seventeen in high school, trying to read about her agonies in original French, with only the Isabelle Huppert film as a guidance In fact, I actually think I owe it to Emma Bovary that I finally made it over the threshold to understand written French That ultimately led me to university studies in French literature, and Since I read Quicksand by Nella Larsen this week, Emma Bovary started haunting my mind yet again We are old friends, Emma and I I spent hours and hours over a dictionary at age seventeen in high school, trying to read about her agonies in original French, with only the Isabelle Huppert film as a guidance In fact, I actually think I owe it to Emma Bovary that I finally made it over the threshold to understand written French That ultimately led me to university studies in French literature, and a lifelong love for French writers In a way, I could argue that Emma introduc...
