Rousseau and Flaubert as true representatives of their own literary periodsJean-Jacques Rousseau's Confessions and Gustave Flaubert's A Simple Heart are representative work of each of their respective literary movements. Confessions reunite all the traits of Romantic literature particularly in the narrative style, point of view, and detail. Similarly A Simple Heart is representative of the Realism movement due to the same three literary elements. Applying their own writing voices, Rousseau and Flaubert effectively coincide in these factors to illustrate the unique traits of the literary period that they respectively epitomize. Confessions follow the narrative style of "telling" a story rather than "showing it". "I have begun on a work which is without precedent, whose accomplishment will have no imitator. I propose to set before my fellow-mortals a man all the truth of nature; and this man shall be myself. I have studied mankind and know my heart," (Rousseau, 410). As a recollection of memories, Rousseau tells the story of his life using exotic, elaborate language with overall candor in his writing voice. This is evident in the way that he begins his tale. Sin
