    Gustave Flaubert

    I am looking for a quote from one of his letters " After 30 a man finds sadness in the beauty of a woman, he sees a corpse walking around" or something like that? I loved the quote but obviously don't remember it well

    thanks ps. madame bovary was phenomenal, but don't know what else of his should be read next.

    I can't help you with quote from Flaubert's letters unfortunately. It may appear in one of the many letters he wrote to George Sand.

    As for what else to read, his novel Sentimental Education is one of the world's great historical novels. However, for something briefer you might want to read his Three Tales, comprised of A Simple Heart, The Legend of Saint Julian Hospitator, and Herodias.
