2 Cassettes, Abridged.
Read by Emilia Fox.
'At the bottom of her heart, however, she was waiting for something to happen. Like shipwrecked sailors, she turned despairing eyes upon the solitude of her life, seeking far off some white sail in the mists of the horizon . . .'
Emma Bovary is the beautiful, frustrated wife of a provincial doctor. Torn between fantasy and reality, Emma, mesmerising to the opposite sex, embarks upon love affairs which belie her class aspirations, but are true to her soul.
'Madame Bovary' is a compelling portrayal of the intensity of human passion, a characteristic which is Emma's greatest tribute, yet which ultimately leads to tragedy.
