Chapter 12, Braithwaite's Dictionary of Accepted Ideas Summary

In this chapter, Geoffrey goes through the people, places, and things that are connected to Flaubert and gives them a definition. In some cases, as with Louise Colet, Geoffrey provides conflicting accounts of the people in Flaubert's life. Is Louise a promiscuous woman who tried to lure him into marriage or a misunderstood woman who has been crucified for her love for Flaubert? Geoffrey offers both options.

There is one definition per letter of the alphabet. The "terms" include Achille, Bouilhet, Colet, Du Camp, Epilepsy, Flaubert, Goncourts, Herbert, Irony, Jean-Paul Sartre, Kuckuk Hanem, Letters, Mme Flaubert, Normandy, Orient, Prussians, Quixote, Realism, Sand, Transvestism, Usa, Voltaire, Whores, Xylophone, Yvetot, and Zola. Geoffrey gives a brief account of each person, place, or thing and its relationship to Flaubert.
