Christopher 1 Taylor Christopher Professor Evarkiou Literature 203 June 12, 2013 Snap! She Doesn’t Have the Power One issue that Gustave Flaubert appears to emphatically address in Madame Bovary is the issue regarding the powerlessness of women. Supporting evidence begins with Emma, a member of the middle class, or bourgeois, who has great aspirations of marrying a wealthy man and having a passionate marriage. She establishes these high standards for herself from having read and engaged in several books regarding passion and a powerful love. However, she is a member of the French middle class and is the daughter of a struggling farmer. One instance where the powerlessness of women is present is her attachment to a wealthy nobleman named Rondolfe. She is constantly seeking his affection because he is near, if not the exact, epitome to the ideal man that is described in these love story books she reads. He is powerful, wealthy, handsome, and has a smooth approach with the opposite sex, in which he uses to seduce Emma.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
