Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>One of the founders of literary naturalism, &#201;mile Zola thought of his novels as a form of scientific research into the effects of heredity and environment. He created characters, gave them richly detailed histories, and placed them in carefully observed, precisely described environments, and his readers watch as they wriggle and thrash toward their inevitable destinies.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>In Nana, the characters are a prostitute, who rises from the streets to become what Zola calls a &#147;high-class cocotte, and the men&#151;and women&#151;whom she loves, betrays, and destroys. Among the novel's many ironies is the mutual envy felt by Nana and those around her. She yearns for their material possessions, while they admire her apparent independence and sexual self-confidence. And despite the chaos Nana causes, Zola imagines her as being essentially &#147;good-natured, a stupid, vain but beautiful creature who can't help drawing people into her web.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>Not surprisingly, Nana's portrait of a decadent world in which a prostitute amasses great wealth and power provoked protests from &#147;polite society, and it became one of Zola's most controversial works. Today it is regarded as his masterpiece.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal> Luc Sante is the author of Low Life, Evidence, and The Factory of Facts and coeditor, with Melissa Holbrook Pierson, of O.K.

"Legendary comrade and consort to train robbers, bootleggers, stagecoach robbers, bushwhackers, bank robbers, horse thieves, cattle thieves, and outlaws of all stripes, Belle Star was born in Missouri and emigrated with her family to Texas in 1863.
