Just two years later, his father died from an infected wound on his thigh, and several months later Flaubert’s sister, Caroline, died of childbirth complications. Flaubert retreated with his mother and infant niece to Croisset while his older brother, Achille, stayed on in the hospital apartment. From then until his death, Flaubert considered Croisset his home, although he had close friends in Rouen and continued to visit regularly. And even though he continued to criticize the city’s Rouen: Norman Capital This statue of Flaubert was destroyed by Allied bombing during World War II.

Dr. Flaubert had aimed higher than his own father, and had worked hard to become Rouen’s leading surgeon. Madame Flaubert had been living at the Hôtel Dieu and also appreciated the rigor necessary to run the hospital. The Flauberts formed a tight partnership: Dr. Flaubert devoted himself to the hospital and later to building a fortune by buying property in the Normandy countryside; Madame Flaubert oversaw their children’s education and managed the family’s growing wealth. Flaubert’s older brother, Achille, took on the responsibility of following in his father’s footsteps, while Gustave and his younger sister, Caroline, were free to roam in the garden outside their hospital apartment.

Rouen moved its hospital to the far eastern section of the city in the early 1990s, and the building now serves as the préfecture, or regional government headquarters. ” Gustave was born in 1821 in an alcove of his parents’ bedroom on the apartment’s second floor. The room is furnished in the bourgeois style of the time, with drapes and velvet, although there are few records that describe the setting. The Flaubert children slept on the third floor of the apartment in the massive hospital’s eastern wing, where the Musée Flaubert now has its offices and plans to expand its exhibition of medical artifacts and Flaubert paraphernalia.
