In his own words the novel is a kind of encyclopedia made into farce A book in which I shall spit out my bile At the center of this book are Bouvard and P cuchet two retired clerks who set out in a search for truth and knowledge with persistent optimism in light of the fact that each new attempt at learning about the world ends in disaster In the literary tradition of Rabelais Cervantes and Swift this story is told in that blend of satire and sympathy that only genius can compound and the reader becomes genuinely fond of these two Don Quixotes of Ideas Apart from being a new translation this edition includes Flaubert s i Dictionary of Received Ideas i

Throughout his life Flaubert made it a game to eavesdrop for the clich the platitude the borrowed and unquestioned idea with which the right thinking swaddle their minds After his death his little treasury of absurdities of half truths and social lies was published as a Dictionnaire des id es re ues Because its devastating humor and irony are often dependent on the phrasing in vernacular French the Dictionnaire was long considered untranslatable This notion was taken as a challenge by Jacques Barzun Determined to find the exact English equivalent for each accepted idea Flaubert recorded he has succeeded in documenting our own inanities With a satirist s wit and a scholar s precision Barzun has produced a very contemporary self portrait of the middle class philistine a species as much alive today as when Flaubert railed against him
