By Gustave Flaubert
Los mejores libros jamás escritos.
Verdadera enciclopedia de los angeles estupidez humana y retrato sangrante y bilioso de l. a. burguesía en estado puro, Bouvard y Pécuchet inaugura de algún modo los angeles literatura del siglo XX.
La más entretenida e hilarante farsa filosófica de l. a. historia, novela póstuma (1881) y quijotesco testamento de Gustave Flaubert, nos cuenta las andanzas de Bouvard y Pécuchet, dos almas gemelas reunidas por el azar. Una herencia y el sueño de un retiro contemplativo donde cultivar l. a. sabiduría harán que se abismen en todas las áreas del conocimiento humano #de l. a. jardinería al teatro, de l. a. medicina a los angeles religión#, para encontrar en todas ellas solo escepticismo y desazón.
Firma l. a. espléndida introducción Jordi Llovet, sutil conocedor de todo lo que rodea al ermitaño de Croisset, y también reúne aquí, dándole a su edición un carácter único, los materiales que preparó el propio Flaubert para los angeles segunda parte (inacabada) de los angeles novela: el «Estupidiario», el «Diccionario de rules corrientes» o l. a. imposible colección de citas, entre otros textos.
«¡Pensándolo bien, es una buena suggestion! ¡Dios mío, pues sí! ¿Por qué no?»
Raymond Queneau dijo...
«Bouvard y Pécuchet es una odisea. l. a. literatura profana, es decir, l. a. verdadera, empieza con Homero, y cualquier gran obra es una Ilíada o una Odisea [...] Satiricón, laDivina Comedia,Pantagruel, elQuijote y, cómo no, elUlises (donde se reconoce los angeles influencia directa deBouvard y Pécuchet) son odiseas, esto es, relatos de tiempo cerrado. Lasilíadas, por el contrario, van en busca del tiempo perdido: ante Troya, en una isla desierta o en casa de losGuermantes.»

He was hoping that orders would come to break up the station; but everything was uncertain, and we got on the best we could for a while. We fished, and helped the people in other ways: there was no other way of paying our debts. I was taken to the pastor’s house until I got better; but they were crowded, and I felt myself in the way, and made excuse to join with an old seaman, a Scotchman, who had built him a warm cabin, and had room in it for another. He was looked upon with regard, and had stood by the pastor in some troubles with the people.
I could not help wondering what errand had brought him out in search of me. There was something quite charming in his appearance: it was a face tin and delicate with refinement, but worn into appealing lines, as if he had suffered from loneliness and misapprehension. He looked, with his careful precision of dress, as if he were the object of cherishing care on the part of elderly unmarried sisters, but I knew Mari’ Harris to be a very commonplace, inelegant person, who would have no such standards; it was plain that the captain was his own attentive valet.
I suppose he’s dead now. I wrote to him, an’ I done all I could. ” I assented absent-mindedly, thinking more just then of my companion’s alert, determined look and the seafaring, ready aspect that had come to his face: but at this moment there fell a sudden change, and the old, pathetic, scholarly look returned. Behind me hung a map of North America, and I saw, as I turned a little, that his eyes were fixed upon the northernmost regions and their careful recent outlines with a look of bewilderment.
