Let us play with Madame Bovary in a fun way, shall we? One way when considering potential partnership of competing suitors is to figure out their good and bad points. For Emma she has three compatible lovers:
• the faithful but boring husband, Charles (Links to an external site.);
• the equally romantic Leon (Links to an external site.);
• and Yonville’s “bad boy,” Rodolphe (Links to an external site.).
For this Discussion, highlight the good and bad points of each suitor and then give your dating advice on whom Emma should end up with. Use examples from the story (Links to an external site.) to explain your match.
