Read Sentimental Education by Gustave Flaubert. Flaubert called his mock epic, "the moral history of the men of my generation." His tragic-comic novel blends love story, autobiography and historical authenticity, telling of a law student’s infatuation with an older woman. She remains the constant, unattainable love of his life, while he befriends her husband, fritters away his inheritance, and sees all his illusions demolished.
