In Gustave Flauberts Madame Bovary we see that Emmas escape into fantasy through her reading is what brings her life to an end The observation on life that Flaubert makes in relation to Madame Bovarys life is that one should not live ones life in an imaginary world One should try to focus on the reality of what surrounds them because if the do not the end result will only lead to self-destruction Emmas eventual downfall starts with her relationship to her husband Her lack of love for her husband leads her to commit adultery with two different men one named Leon and the other named Rodolphe In the end she finds herself disappointed which leads to her suicidal death by poison Her yearn for a more superficial lifestyle is nothing more or less than that of the human condition in the modern world To fill that emptiness she begins to lose herself in the fantasies of literature Emmas process to her eventual downfall starts with her relationship with her husband Charles Bovary is a bourgeois country doctor who is deeply in love with his wife He would do anything for her happiness At first Emma thinks that she loves him but as time passes she realizes that her feelings for him are not pure She is bored with her life and wishes for it to be more exciting Emma wants her life to mirror those that she reads about in her novels She feels that she is missing happiness in her life therefore to fill that gap she finds refuge in a new lover In her eyes a lover is a man who wants what she wants and who exists for her Nothing in her mind could make her doubt this More importantly her lover gives her everything her life lacks excitement and attention She even asked why she detested Charles if it had been better to have been able to love
