Madame Bovary

Madame Bovary (2014)Madame Bovary

A classic description of the HYSTERICAL PERSONALITY DISORDER. All the features are there:
the impulsive behavior
the splitting
the fantasy life
the failure to consider consequences
the decline to an inevitable conclusion.
Although HYSTERIA has been replaced in psychiatric nomenclature by BORDERLINE or NARCISSISTIC personality disorder, it has not disappeared. People like Emma are still around.
