Fauvel’s novel

Today, I am going to speak about « The Flauvel’s novel ».

This novel was written between 1310 and 1314 by Gervais Du Bus, he speak about « Flauvel » a donkey who becomes king. His name is an acronym from six of his defaults: flattery, avarice, vileness, volatility, envy, cowardice.

Flauvel has the power by chance and especially thanks deceit. He punishes the innocent and he rewarded hypocrites. This novel take place in the world where human acted like animals. This novel is satire of policy on this century and denuncuation from people who abuse their power.

I like this novel because Flauvel look like at some people in our present world.
