George Seibel: " . . . We ploughed through our adored Flaubert. Madam Bovary wasn't so hard, but La Tentation de Saint Antoine and Salammbo proved most refractory until I discovered that a Latin lexicon and classical dictionary were more help than Littre."
Cather also discusses this work with Flaubert's niece Madame Franklin Grout in "A Chance Meeting."
