Summary

Madame Bovary Part 3, Chapter 3 Summary Page 1

  • Those three days are like heaven. Emma and Léon stay in a waterfront hotel, doing nothing but enjoying each other’s company. Emma is happier than she’s been since Rodolphe.
  • One day, on a boat ride, Emma is actually reminded of Rodolphe – the boatman mentions giving a ride to a gentleman of his appearance. She shudders, but gets over it quickly.
  • The holiday has to end, though. Emma tells Léon to send letters to her to the home of Madame Rollet, the former wetnurse.
  • As Léon makes his way home, having deposited Emma at the stagecoach, he wonders idly why she is so determined to get the power of attorney.
