From the Paper:

"Flaubert: "A Simple Heart" Gustave Flaubert was a French realist during the 1800s. His early intention was to become a lawyer; yet, when it was discovered that Flaubert suffered from epilepsy he withdrew from law school and began writing full-time ("Flaubert"). Flaubert shared a dedication to realism in his writing with Russian author Turgenev. Contended to present a "non-judgmental representation of life" Flaubert wrote his books and stories out with an "ink welled pen", and believed that every book required nurturing to the end ("Gustave"). Flauberts most famous novel was published in 1857, and was entitled Madam Bovery. At the time of the novel's publication society believed that Flaubert had committed sins against immorality, and Flaubert was consequently tried and acquitted of the charges in that same year ("Gustave").
