    Question Looking to see how 'Flaubertian' can be used in a sentence

    I was asked about the usage of Flaubertian in a sentence. I have no idea how to give meaning to the above save for the fact that Gustave Flaubert may very well be associated with describing a situation as 'Flaubertian.' Would that mean 'flowery'. 'romantic', 'convoluted'? Any ideas? Thanks. Philipgary71

    You might want to consider doing a search under Magical Realism.

    There's also this:
    The "total" and Flaubertian idea, the "utopian design," is to create a novelistic reality so autonomous and whole that the reader feels convinced that this illusory reality is as true and durable as the reality it purports to describe, perhaps even more so.
