-On the first page of Madame Bovary, Flaubert introduces a technique he will use throughout the novel, synecdoche. This technique, also known as “the part for the whole,” uses one aspect of a character to represent the complex whole of the person.

How do the peculiarities of the cap represent the oddities of Charles’s personality as we come to know him later? Give three short quotations that can be read as symbolic of Charles.
