This paper discusses, through a character analysis of Charles and Emma Bovary and a study of their life as a couple, how the great social divide between the rich and the poor led to the tragic end of Emma Bovary's life.

From the Paper:

"Throughout history, literature has become an effective medium that reflects and illustrates social events and experiences of a particular period. Furthermore, literary works provide a subjective interpretation of experiences that the author/writer has that are also significant in studying the kind of society and people that lived in a particular period. Gustave Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" provides these functions in a literary piece; his depiction of life of Western society during the 19th century mirrors the rigidly conservative and intolerant nature of the people against individuals who are perceived to be "outcasts" or non-conformists among people who follow strict norms within their society."
