About this ebook

"Salambo", französischer Originaltitel "Salammbô", ist ein 1862 erschienener historischer Roman von Gustave Flaubert.

Er schildert angelehnt an historische Begebenheiten den Verlauf des Söldneraufstands, der nach der Niederlage Karthagos im Ersten Punischen Krieg 241 bis etwa 238 v. Chr. in Nordafrika ausbrach. Die Titelfigur Salammbô, im Roman die Tochter des karthagischen Feldherrn Hamilkar Barkas, ist indes fiktiv.

Flauberts Roman, dessen exotisch-drastische Schilderungen das zeitgenössische Publikum sehr beeindruckten, wurde mehrmals dramatisiert, u. a. in einer unvollendeten Oper von Mussorgski.

Gustave Flaubert

Gustave Flaubert (1821–1880) was a French novelist who was best known for exploring realism in his work. Hailing from an upper-class family, Flaubert was exposed to literature at an early age. He received a formal education at Lycée Pierre-Corneille, before venturing to Paris to study law. A serious illness forced him to change his career path, reigniting his passion for writing. He completed his first novella, November, in 1842, launching a decade-spanning career. His most notable work, Madame Bovary was published in 1856 and is considered a literary masterpiece.
