Dictionary of Accepted Ideas by Gustave Flaubert

By Gustave Flaubert

Jacques Barzun's masterful translation proves that Flaubert's Dictionary of authorised Ideas—an acid catalogue of the clichés of 19th-century France—is as correct this present day as ever.
Throughout his lifestyles Flaubert made it a online game to eavesdrop for the cliché, the platitude, the borrowed and unquestioned suggestion with which the “right thinking” swaddle their minds. After his loss of life his little treasury of absurdities, of half-truths and social lies, used to be released as a Dictionnaire des idées reçues. simply because its devastating humor and irony are usually depending on the phraseology in vernacular French, the Dictionnairewas lengthy thought of untranslatable. This proposal was once taken as a problem via Jacques Barzun. made up our minds to discover the precise English similar for every “accepted idea” Flaubert recorded, he has succeeded in documenting our personal inanities. With a satirist’s wit and a scholar’s precision, Barzun has produced a truly modern self-portrait of the middle-class philistine, a species as a lot alive this present day as whilst Flaubert railed opposed to him.
