Ce qu’en dit l’éditeur
This carefully crafted ebook: "Three Tales: A Simple Heart, Saint Julian the Hospitalier and Herodias” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. "A Simple Heart" is a story about a servant girl named Felicité. After her one and only love Théodore purportedly marries a well-to-do woman to avoid conscription, Felicité quits the farm where she works and heads for Pont-l'Évèque, where she picks up work in a widow's house as a servant. It was inspired by several events in Flaubert's own life: he also lived in a farmhouse in rural Normandy, he also was adrift in his studies, much like Paul. Most importantly, he suffered an epileptic fit in the same way that Félicité does in the story. "The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitalier" is a story about Julian the Hospitaller. He is predicted at birth to do great things. His father is told that he will marry into the family of a great emperor, while his mother is told he will be a saint. It was inspired by a large stained glass window at Rouen Cathedral. Flaubert deliberately made his story markedly different from the story told in glass. "Hérodias" is the retelling of the beheading of John the Baptist. It starts slightly before the arrival of the Syrian governor, Vitellius. Herodias holds a huge birthday celebration for her second husband, Herod Antipas. Unknown to him, she has concocted a plan to behead John. It is based on the biblical figure of the same name. Flaubert based the section on the dance of Salomé from a bas-relief also at Rouen Cathedral, and his own experience watching a young female dancer while in Egypt. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) was an influential French writer who was perhaps the leading exponent of literary realism of his country.This carefully crafted ebook: "Three Tales: A Simple Heart, Saint Julian the Hospitalier and Herodias” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.

Biographie
Gustave Flaubert naît le 12 décembre 1821 à Rouen, où son père chirurgien en chef à l'Hôtel-Dieu.
Très jeune, il commence à écrire de nombreux textes, drames, romans et nouvelles. Un parfum à sentir date de. 1836, année de sa rencontre avec Mme Schlésinger, qui sera son grand amour - à défaut d'être sa maîtresse, semble-t-il. Dès 1838, il entreprend de rédiger Les Mémoires d'un fou. Après son baccalauréat, il voyage dans les Pyrénées et en Corse, puis s'inscrit en droit à Paris mais ne fait guère preuve d'assiduité.
A la même époque, il se lie avec Maxime Du Camp. Victime d'une crise nerveuse, il abandonne ses études et s'installe à Croisset, près de Rouen, en 1844 ; c'est là qu'il mourra trente-cinq ans plus tard. En juillet 1846, il fait la connaissance de Louise Colet, avec qui il entretient une longue liaison sensuelle et orageuse jusqu'en. 1854. Les années qui suivent sont d'une grande fécondité. Il alterne voyages, séjours à Paris et écriture.
Après un procès en correctionnel pour outrage à la morale publique et religieuse et aux bonnes moeurs, malgré de prudentes coupures, Madame Bovary paraît en librairie en avril 1857. Flaubert publie des fragments de La Tentation de saint Antoine (dont la version définitive ne paraîtra qu'en 1873), et travaille à Salammbô (1862), L'Education sentimentale (1869), Trois contes (1877). Faisant face à de nombreux soucis financiers et à des problèmes de santé, Flaubert meurt brusquement à Croisset d'une hémorragie cérébrale, le 8 mai 1880, laissant Bouvard et Pécuchet inachevé.
Il est enterré à Rouen. Ecrivain perfectionniste, Gustave Flaubert n'a cessé d'écrire et de réécrire ses romans à la recherche du mot juste, de la phrase idéale. Il a ainsi laissé quelques-uns des plus grands chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature françaises.
