Finished Madame Bovary this morning, having quite enjoyed rereading it. On the whole, I feel Flaubert is quite sympathetic to Emma. He can be particularly critical about most of the characters, but he never seems to forget that her situtation is effected greatly by her place in society as a woman and the way men treat her. I also appreciate the way his descriptions are colored by the character seeing what is described. When they are feeling elated or in love everything is bright and beautiful, yet in the converse everything is dusty and dirty and dark. It's not so much what is there that changes but what one pays attention and how one considers its aspects. I don't really have much to say about it, I guess.
Been working on one of my personal coding projects, an online (but it works offline) character sheet for D&D 5th edition. I've been using it for a while now (the repository has been there for more than 3 years), and since we are going to be playing that edition again soon, I thought I'd update it and improve some issues I've had using it.
