First published in 1877, these three tales are dominated by questions of doubt, love, loneliness and religious experience, and together form a triumphant conclusion to Flaubert’s literary career.

With elegant simplicity, ‘A Simple Heart’ tells the story of Felicité, an uneducated serving-woman who retains her Catholic faith despite a life of desolation and loss. Inspired by a stained-glass window in Rouen cathedral, ‘The Legend of Saint Julian Hospitator’ describes the fate of Julian, a sadistic hunter destined to murder his own parents. And ‘Hérodias’ is a reworking of the tale of Salomé and John the Baptist.
