Her novels exclude the lower classes-both the industrial masses of the big cities and the agricultural labourers in the countryside. Three or four families in the country village is the very thing to work on. She does not show any of the great agonies or darker side of human experience. There is no hunger, poverty, misery or terrible vices and very little of the spiritual sphere of experience. Nor do we see any political dimension or even discussions regarding major political happenings in any of her novels.
Though his attention to detail in places mirrors that of a realist or naturalist writer, this is not his essential purpose.2 Flaubert defies any attempt to fit his work to a particular movement or style in French literature, though there is little doubt that his work Madame Bovary is a reactionary satire of French romanticism and of the bourgeois society that regurgitated the clich�s of the movement. Each word in the novel is carefully chosen, so the book becomes a painstakingly constructed trap which ensnares the thoughts of the reader and guides them to the conclusions that Flaubert wants us to make.
Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.

"In conclusion, in my opinion the novel is one of protest and of hopelessness. Batiste does display great determination throughout the novel but the important fact to remember is that by the end of it, he has come back to where he started, with nothing. I believe that Blasco Ibï¿½ï¿½ez's displays nothing but pessimism for the factors that cause Batiste to fail in the Valencian lands. There is a sense all through the novel of hopelessness and I think that Blasco intended the reader to instinctually know that Batiste was not going to be able to protest or struggle enough in order to succeed against all of the obstacles put in his way."
"In conclusion Jane Austen allows the reader to perceive Emma in many different ways throughout these two chapters. In chapter sixteen Emma can either be seen as a real friend of Harriet's who is dreading having to tell her about how Mr Elton really feels "Such a blow for Harriet-That was the worst of all". On the other hand Emma could actually just be looking out for herself and thinking that if she has tell Harriet about her plan failing and that she is not always right. Chapter twenty four illustrates how Emma's fancy really gets out of hand and how she thinks what she wants to believe."
Through the comparison of Austen's Emma and Heckerling's Clueless, new insight of the original text can be gained by the modern reader through examining the values inherent in the transformation. The two texts hence complement one another in contributing to the responder's overall understanding of how values transcend through time, as well as how new ideas can be expressed through the process of transforming a classic text into a modern text."
