Flaubert takes us back in time with this biblical tale about the beheading of John the Baptist and the circumstances that led to it. It introduces us to Herod I, the King of Judea, Salome who acts under her mother's behest, and John who loses his life for his principles. The tale deals with human emotions and also offers commentary on the moral, social and political scenarios of that age.
