ABSTRACT
Chapter III of the book, "Culture and the Literary Text: The Case of Flaubert's Madam Bovary," is presented. It discusses the concepts of interaction, temporality and territoriality in the novel "Madame Bovary" by Gustave Flaubert. It depicts the novel as an outstanding illustration of how anthropological issues of space are bound to literary applications. It highlights the socio-historical context of the author's age and society while manipulating proxemics within the limits of territoriality in order to metaphorically depict the animic state of the literary character Emma Bovary. Flaubert has created a tangible experience for the reader by personifying these cultural criteria in Emma.
