Summary
In 1800s provincial northern France, Emma Bovary yearns for a taste of the luxury and romance she has imbibed from the popular novels she has read. Instead, married to a man with a second-rate medical degree and little ambition, and living far away from the enticements of Paris, Emma is stifled by the banality and emptiness of her existence. Desperately frustrated, she embarks upon adulterous affairs and voracious spending sprees. However, not only are her efforts to live with passion ultimately unsatisfying, but they also have devastating consequences..
