Abstract: In 1877 Flaubert published three short stories in a volume called Trois Contes. The following is a discussion of Un Coeur simple which appears first in the volume although it was written second. It has been admired for almost one hundred years as an example of good writing. Both contemporary writers and those of succeeding generations have referred to its artistic perfection. There are many English translations of it, one of which appears in almost every anthology of short fiction—especially those designed for classroom use. My study has been limited primarily to the story itself.
