L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

848 editions published between 1873 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 5,725 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 belly of Paris by Émile Zola( Book )

581 editions published between 1855 and 2018 in 16 languages and held by 4,186 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 3,985 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 )

614 editions published between 1840 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 3,394 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

Restless house by Émile Zola( Book )

389 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pot Luck (1882) is the tenth in Zola's Rougon-Macquart cycle of twenty novels illustrating the influence of environment on characters from all levels of society. Zola's most acerbic fictional satire, the novel is set in a newly constructed apartment block in the Rue de Choiseul in Paris. Seemingly a place of prosperity and harmony, it is riddled with snobbery and hypocrisy. Privilege forms but a thin veneer of respectability between the bourgeois tenants, who live in comfortable, heated apartments, and their servants who live in cold, partitioned cubicles under the roof, and work in the building's filthy kitchens
The dream by Émile Zola( Book )

546 editions published between 1888 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,393 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 )

474 editions published between 1870 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,014 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
The ladies' paradise by Émile Zola( Book )

167 editions published between 1880 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,961 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 kill by Émile Zola( )

40 editions published between 1945 and 2011 in English and held by 1,952 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
Money by Émile Zola( Book )

452 editions published between 1831 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 1,909 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 Curée) 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. - Back cover

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!
La curée by Émile Zola( Book )

The death of Olivier Becaille by Émile Zola( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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!"
The experimental novel, and other essays by Émile Zola( Book )

190 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five of these articles first appeared, translated into Russian, in the Messager deVE urope, a St. Petersburg review. The two others, entitled The Novel and Criticism, are but the gathering together of articles selected from a large number published in Le Bien Public and Le Voltaire. Allow me to publicly express my gratitude to the great nation which welcomed me so warmly, and adopted me, at a time when not a journal in Paris would accept what I wrote and everyone was my enemy in my literary battle. Russia, in one of my hours of pain and discouragement, revived my faith in myself, renewed my strength, and gave me a public, and that the most critical and impassioned of publics. Her criticism of my writings made me what I am to-day. I cannot speak of her without emotion, and I shall keep her in eternal remembrance. They are therefore polemics, manifestoes, if you will, written in the first flush of the idea, without any rhetorical subtilities. As they were to be translated into another tongue, I paid little attention to their literary form. My first intention was to rewrite them before publishing them in France
