6. Flaubert-Lecture: Flaubert and Courbet
Gustave Flaubert and Gustave Courbet are great contemporaries whose respective achievements – whose visions of reality and of their respective arts – have more in common than has usually been recognized. Unlike the literary critics of the 20th century, who denounced the Flaubertian conception of art as religion because of its aristocratic character, Flaubert's contemporaries instantly identified the literary emergence of Madame Bovary with the political emergence of democracy, i. e. a democracy which is not conceived of as political regime or doctrine but as a specific form sensitive to equality.
