In this Essay, the author addresses censorship by examining public reaction to two literary works: Flaubert's Madame Bovary and Roth's Defender of the Faith. She presents the dangers of silencing writers to prevent readers from finding in these writings "confirmation for their own fully-developed intolerance, bigotry, hatred and violence."
