Gustave Flaubert was born in Rouen in 1821, the son of a prominent physician. A solitary child, he was attracted to literature at an early age, and after his recovery from a nervous breakdown suffered while a law student, he turned his total energies to writing. The startling thing about Flaubert's rendering of "The Temptation of Saint Anthony" is Flaubert's depiction of the thresholds of temptation. After Saint Anthony had effectively withstood the wiles of the beautiful women who had come out to his desert hermitage to seduce him, he had to deal with the temptresses of antiquity.
The temptation of Saint Anthony is Flaubert's entire life’s work. This is a very strange book. He had had the first idea of it in 1845, in Genoa, Italy, by watching a painting by Breughel, The Temptations of Saint Anthony. Besides, in the descriptions of the book, we find many of Breughel's paintings. Gustave Flaubert, best known for his masterpiece Madame Bovary, spent nearly thirty years working on a surreal and largely ‘unreadable’ retelling of the temptation of Saint Anthony.
