«Je porte en moi los angeles mélancolie des races barbares, avec ses instincts de migrations et ses dégoûts innés de los angeles vie, qui leur faisait quitter leur will pay, pour se quitter eux-mêmes.» Flaubert Peut-on lâcher son siècle ? Le détester, oui, lui préférer une Antiquité imaginaire, certes, mais Flaubert est entraîné dans les tourbillons du temps. Son œuvre portera cette double marque : le rêve carthaginois d'un monde flamboyant à jamais disparu et los angeles peinture vengeresse du siècle de Monsieur Prudhomme et du pharmacien Homais. Michel Winock porte un regard d'historien sur cette vie tout entière vouée à l. a. littérature. Son dégoût proclamé de los angeles vie, Flaubert ne l'a transcendé ni par l'expérience amoureuse, ni par los angeles foi en Dieu, ni par quelque idéal politique, mais par los angeles faith de l'Art, dont il fut un pèlerin absolu.
