Flaubert, Gustave: The Temptation of St Antony, v.1, 17 April 2008.
The temptation of St Antony, or A Revelation of the Soul (1874, translated 1904.)
This novel recently appeared on PG. If you liked Flaubert’s Salammbo then you may like this. Flaubert’s friends were unimpressed by the style and advised him to burn it, after surviving a four-day reading in 1849.
The Temptation of Saint Anthony (French La Tentation de Saint Antoine) is a book which Gustave Flaubert spent practically his whole life fitfully working on, in three versions he completed in 1849, 1856 (extracts published at the same time) and 1872 before publishing the final version in 1874. It is written in the form of a play script. It details one night in the life of Anthony the Great where Anthony is faced with great temptations, and it was inspired by the painting, which he saw at the Balbi Palace in Genoa.
