L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

622 editions published between 1873 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 3,724 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The seventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, L'Assommoir (1877), is the story of a woman's struggle for happiness in working-class Paris. It was a contemporary bestseller, outraged conservative critics, and launched a passionate debate about the legitimate scope of modern literature. At the centre of the novel stands Gervaise, who starts her own laundry and for a time makes a success of it. But her husband Coupeau squanders her earnings in the Assommoir, the local drinking shop, and gradually the pair sink into poverty and squalor. L'Assommoir is the most finely crafted of Zola's novels, and this new translation captures not only the brutality but also the pathos of its characters' lives. This book is a powerful indictment of nineteenth-century social conditions, and the Introduction examines its relation to politics and art as well as its explosive effect on the literary scene
The ladies' paradise by Émile Zola( Book )

457 editions published between 1883 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 3,147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through charm, drive, and diligent effort Octave Mouret has become the director of one of the finest new department stores in Paris, Au Bonheur des Dames. Supremely aware of the power of his position, Mouret seeks to exploit the desire that his luxuriantly displayed merchandise arouses in the ladies who shop, and the aspirations of the young female assistants he employs. Charting the beginnings of the capitalist economy and bourgeois society, Zola captures in lavish detail the greedy customers and gossiping staff, and the obsession with image, fashion, and gratification that was a phenomenon of nineteenth-century French consumer society. Of all Zola's novels, this may be the one with the most relevance for our own time"--The publisher
The debacle by Émile Zola( Book )

353 editions published between 1883 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 3,070 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."--Jacket
La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

328 editions published between 1890 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 2,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A superb new translation of one of the most intense and explicit works of the nineteenth-century French master Emile Zola considered The Beast Within-also known as La Bete Humaine-to be his "most finely worked" novel. This new translation finally captures his fast- paced yet deliberately dispassionate style. Set at the end of the Second Empire, when French society seemed to be hurtling into the future like the new railways and locomotives it was building, The Beast Within is at once a tale of murder, passion, and possession and a compassionate study of individuals derailed by the burden of inherited evil. In it, Zola expresses the hope that human nature evolves through education but warns that the beast within continues to lurk beneath the veneer of technological progress. (Barnes & Noble)
The kill by Émile Zola( Book )

295 editions published between 1850 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 2,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The incestuous affair of Renee Saccard and her stepson, Maxime, is set against the frenzied speculation of Renee's financier husband, Aristide, in a Paris swiftly becoming a modern metropolis and "the capital of the nineteenth century." In the end, setting and story merge in actions that leave a woman's spirit and a city's soul ravaged beyond repair
The earth = La terre by Émile Zola( Book )

250 editions published between 1883 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Family greed, brutality and deceit in rural France
Restless house by Émile Zola( Book )

261 editions published between 1000 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,988 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 sin of Father Mouret by Émile Zola( Book )

320 editions published between 1000 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,912 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The church at Les Artaud stood on a hillock above the isolated village, looking out onto desolate landscape all around. It was to this harsh and near pagan place that the Abbe Serge Mouret had come as parish priest, hoping to realize his craving for solitude and his dream of an existence of Godlike purity. Then, one day, with his uncle Doctor Pascal, he goes to visit 'the Philosopher' at Paradou where they chance to meet the sixteen-year-old Albine. Later, when the Abbe falls ill, it is to Paradou that he is brought to recover. Unwittingly, in the enchanted garden, he falls to the temptation of Albine. But when at last he awakens from his dream-like state, he is horrified, and is left to confront his transgression. In this story, the fifth novel in the Rougon-Macquart series, Zola provides a damning indictment of the celibacy of the priesthood, and takes up the issue of the law of Nature versus the law of the Church. One of Zola's best works, it contains some of his most lyrical writing, in particular in the fine descriptions of the garden
The dream by Émile Zola( Book )

384 editions published between 1888 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 1,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emile Zola's novel Le Réve (1888) is a love idyll concerning a poor embroideress, Angelique, and the son of a wealthy aristocratic family, set against the backdrop of a sleepy cathedral town in northern France." "A far cry from the seething, teeming world evoked in Zola's best-known novels, it may at first seem a strange interlude between La Terre and La Bete Humaine in the twenty-volume sequence known as the Rougon-Macquart Novels."
The fortune of the Rougons by Émile Zola( Book )

314 editions published between 1871 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Money by Émile Zola( Book )

286 editions published between 1891 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristide Rougon, known as Saccard, is a failed property speculator determined to make his way once more in Paris. Unscrupulous, seductive, and with unbounded ambition, he schemes and manipulates his way to power. Financial undertakings in the Middle East lead to the establishment of a powerful new bank and speculation on the stock market; Saccard meanwhile conducts his love life as energetically as he does his business, and his empire is seemingly unstoppable. Saccard, last encountered in The Kill (La Curee) in Zola's Rougon-Macquart series, is a complex figure whose story intricately intertwines the worlds of politics, finance, and the press. The repercussions of his dealings on all levels of society resonate disturbingly with the financial scandals of more recent times. This is the first new translation for more than a hundred years, and the first unabridged translation in English. The edition includes a wide-ranging introduction and useful historical notes

The old Marche des Innocents has been knocked down as part of Haussmann's grand programme of urban reconstruction to make way for Les Halles, the spectacular new food markets.

The narrative that circles around a French officer and reflects the disciplined life led by military men. However, there are human weaknesses that overcome the religiously executed drillings. A great illustration of the weak impulses that one cannot control. Engrossing!
