4,500 additional pages
omitted from Flaubert's 500-page Madame Bovary
have been released online (in French). "The site – www.bovary.fr
– contains not only the published text and images of the barely legible manuscripts but interactive controls which allow the reader to re-instate passages corrected or cut by Flaubert or his publishers." It took "between three and 10 hours to decipher a single page of Flaubert's writing," done mostly by volunteers from around the world.
