Herodias, ´´Dance of death´´ and ´´The Legend of Saint Julian The Hospitalier´´ : 3 French short stories by Gustave Flaubert. ´´Herodias´´ is a short story by Gustave Flaubert, one of the great masters of French literature. It is a reworking of the tale of Salomé and John the Baptist, in which faith and cruelty are blended in a deadly dance culminating in tragedy. A stylistic masterpiece, with orientalist sensuality and an inspired dive into religious fervor, this short story brings the ancient era to the most colorful possible life. ´´Dance of Death´´ is a prose poem in which Death laments over the cruel task God has given him. Engaging in a dialogue with Satan, and later Nero as one of Satan´s first minions, Death suggests that of the two of them, Satan has the more enviable lot, as his work will one day be done and he will have rest. ´´Dance of Death´´ is impregnated with the spirit of romanticism, which had a powerful hold on the mind of Flaubert at the time of its writing. Its florid prose makes it a very interesting curiosity for the reader wishing to know a younger Flaubert, who would only later become the famous author of Madame Bovary. ´´The Legend of Saint Julian the Hospitalier´´ is an inspiring tale of perseverance and humility, one of Flaubert´s most touching short stories with a religious theme. Saint Julian is predicted at birth to do great things, but a growing hatred takes root in him, leading him to seek a way to escape a destiny which seems more and more likely to be terrible. 1.
