“I am irritated by my own writing. I am like a violinist whose ear is true, but whose fingers refuse to reproduce precisely the sound he hears within.”— Gustave Flaubert
The highly influential French novelist Gustave Flaubert was born 12 December 1821 and passed away 8 May 1880. He is known especially for his debut novel Madame Bovary, published in 1857.
I can relate to Gustave’s sentiment!
