(p.197) Conclusion
Flaubert: Writing the Masculine

Mary Orr

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents some concluding thoughts from the author. This book suggests various ways in which study of writing the masculine can be undertaken. A focus on how the male characters in Flaubert's works interrelate with themselves, their peers, their culture, their ethos, and their epoch brings gender studies back into Flaubert using approaches different from, and complementary to, previous criticism. Most characters in Flaubert are male, but it is precisely that ‘mostly’ which will be the key to unlocking new ways of studying these rich and fascinating texts.

Keywords:   Flaubert, male characters, gender studies
