During the Second Empire, Etienne Lantier, an unemployed railway worker, experiences the miserable life of the coal miners in northern France and enters the struggle between capital and labor. In the Maheus family, the father and three of seven children work brutal hours to extract coal far beneath the earth amid hazards of landslides, fire, poisoned air, and poisoned health. Then comes the idea of a workers' revolt, and soon the settlement is aflame. Zola chronicles the conflicts, lusts, and deprivation of life in the coal fields of nineteenth-century France

L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

874 editions published between 1873 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 5,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With its naturalistic description and street argot, L'Assommoir vividly evokes the poverty and squalor beneath the superficial glamour of Parisian life under the Second Empire. But in telling the story of the rise and downfall of the laundress Gervaise Macquart, Zola surmounts his moral and social intentions."--Jacket
The belly of Paris by Émile Zola( Book )

555 editions published between 1855 and 2019 in 13 languages and held by 4,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Little known in this country, The Belly of Paris (Le Ventre de Paris) is one of Emile Zola's most wonderfully descriptive, humorous, and exciting fictions. In this novel the author of Germinal, L'Assommoir, Nana and Therese Raquin chooses as his locale the newly built food markets of Paris. Into this extravagance of food - which Zola describes in set pieces that wet the tongue, excite the ear, and stir up the belly - he places his young hero, the half-starved Florent, who has just escaped imprisonment in Cayenne. Florent finds himself at odds with a world he now knows is unjust. Gradually he takes up with the local Socialists, who are more at home in bars than on the revolutionary streets
The debacle by Émile Zola( Book )

535 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 4,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La Debacle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola ever wrote. Zola skillfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France."--
La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

561 editions published between 1890 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 3,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On one level a tale of murder, passion, and possession, it is also a compassionate study of individuals derailed by atavistic forces beyond their control. Zola considered this his 'most finely worked' novel, and in it he powerfully evokes life at the end of the Second Empire in France, where society seemed to be hurtling into the future like the new locomotives and railways it was building. While expressing the hope that human nature evolves through education and gradually frees itself of the burden of inherited evil, he is constantly reminding us that under the veneer of technological progress there remains, always, the beast within. This new translation captures Zola's fast-paced yet deliberately dispassionate style, while the introduction and detailed notes place the novel in its social, historical, and literary context
The ladies' paradise by Émile Zola( Book )

384 editions published between 1880 and 2019 in 6 languages and held by 3,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Provincial girl in 19th-century Paris takes part in the battle of the first department store versus the small shopkeepers
Doctor Pascal by Émile Zola( Book )

368 editions published between 1854 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 2,967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Doctor Pascal concludes Zola's epic Rougon-Macquart series. Pascal has spent his thirty years as a physician cataloging his family and identifying their often unedifying exploits as the specific results of heredity and innateness. His niece at first believes this work to be an arrogant denial of God's omnipotence, but as Pascal reveals the details of the Rougon-Macquart family tree to her, she begins to see the value in his work
The earth = La terre by Émile Zola( Book )

456 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set in a village in the Beauce, in northern France, it depicts the harshness of the peasants' world and their visceral attachment to the land. Jean Macquart, a veteran of the battle of Solferino and now an itinerant farm labourer, is drawn into the affairs of the Fouan family when he starts courting young Franc̦oise. He becomes involved in a bitter dispute over the property of Papa Fouan when the old man divides his land between his three children. Resentment turns to greed and violence in a Darwinian battle for supremacy"--Page 4 of cover
Restless house by Émile Zola( Book )

387 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematically exposing the contradictions that pervade bourgeois life, Zola reveals a multitude of adulteries and betrayals, a veritable 'melting pot' of moral and sexual degeneracy. This new translation captures the robustness of Zola's language and restores the omissions of earlier abridged versions
The dream by Émile Zola( Book )

553 editions published between 1888 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 2,532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"However, belying its appearance as a simple fairy-tale, the work reveals many of Zola's characteristic themes, in particular the conflict between heredity and environment, between spirituality and sensuality between the powerful and the powerless. The dream of Angelique is at once reality and illusion, and this interplay provides the driving force of the novel. Above all, the novel is, as Zola himself described it, 'a poem of passion', displaying the lyrical dimension of his genius." "This translation by Michael Glencross, the first in English since that of Eliza Chase in 1893, recaptures the vigour of Zola'a original. The translator also provides an introduction that places the novel in the context of Zola's life and work as a whole."--Jacket
The fortune of the Rougons by Émile Zola( Book )

480 editions published between 1870 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 2,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Fortune of the Rougonsis the first in Zola's famous Rougon-Macquart series of novels. In it we learn how the two branches of the family came about, and the origins of the hereditary weaknesses passed down the generations. Murder, treachery, and greed are the keynotes, and just as the Empire was established through violence, the "fortune" of the Rougons is paid for in blood

From the Rougon-Macquart Series: Money (L'Argent): After a disastrous speculation, Aristide Saccard was forced to sell his mansion and to cast about for means of creating a fresh fortune.

A priest in the house by Émile Zola( Book )

329 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The arrival of Abbé Faujas in the provincial town of Plassans has profound consequences for the community, and for the family of François Mouret in particular. Faujas and his mother come to lodge with François, his wife Marthe, and their three children, and his cousin Marthe quickly falls under the influence of the priest. Ambitious and unscrupulous, Faujas gradually infiltrates into all quarters of the town, intent on political as well as religious conquest. Intrigue, slander, and insinuation tear the townsfolk apart, creating suspicion and distrust, and driving the Mourets to ever more extreme actions. In one of the most psychological of his novels, Zola links small-town politics to the greater political and national dramas of the Second Empire

It was on a Saturday, at six in the morning, that I died after a three days' illness. My wife was searching a trunk for some linen, and when she rose and turned she saw me rigid, with open eyes and silent pulses. She ran to me, fancying that I had fainted, touched my hands and bent over me. Then she suddenly grew alarmed, burst into tears and stammered: "My God, my God! He is dead!"
