(1821–80), French novelist and short-story writer. A dominant figure in the French realist school, he achieved fame with his first published novel, Madame Bovary (1857). Its portrayal of the adulteries and suicide of a provincial doctor’s wife caused Flaubert to be tried for immorality (and acquitted).
