Mon propos est d'interroger cette Correspondance pour mettre en évidence les constructions qui sous-tendent l'oeuvre critique de Flaubert. Bien que celui-ci rêve toute sa vie d'écrire des ouvrages reviews qui seraient à l'écoute de l'oeuvre, il n'en rédige aucun. l. a. Correspondance, par contre, fourmille de commentaires sur d'autres écrivains, particulièrement sur ceux du XIXe siècle. L'opinion qu'il exprime à leur propos est plus révélatrice; vehicle elle est moins soumise aux goûts et aux normes imposés par l'éducation qu'il les ait intégrés ou non. Ces commentaires sont los angeles seule critique qu'il ait jamais écrite. On y trouve rarement des jugements littéraires en tant que tels, mais plutôt des réactions de tempérament utilisant un langage très group of workers. Une lecture minutieuse de l. a. Correspondance permet de déchiffrer ce langage métaphorique.
