Thérèse Raquin by Émile Zola( )

6 editions published between 1901 and 2010 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a girl trapped in an unhappy marriage to her first cousin so captivated the French writer Emile Zola that he explored it in multiple works, producing both a novel and a play based on the same core set of characters. The protagonist, Camille, becomes desperate and takes matters into her own hands, committing what may be the perfect crime in order to build a new life for herself. Will she get away with it, or will her paralyzing guilt give her away?

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

|Mile |douard Charles Antoine Zola[1] (* 2. April 1840 in Paris; | 29. September 1902 ebenda) war ein franzs̲ischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Zola gilt als einer der gro|en franzs̲ischen Romanciers des 19. Jahrhunderts und als Leitfigur und Begr|nder der gesamteuropĩschen literarischen Strm̲ung des Naturalismus. Zugleich war er ein sehr aktiver Journalist, der sich auf einer gem|̃igt linken Position am politischen Leben beteiligte. Sein Artikel J'accuse ...! (Ich klage an ...!) spielte eine Schl|sselrolle in der Dreyfus-Affr̃e, die Frankreich jahrelang in Atem hielt, und trug entscheidend zur spt̃eren Rehabilitierung des fl̃schlich wegen Landesverrats verurteilten Offiziers Alfred Dreyfus bei.

Émile Zola, novelist and reformer : an account of his life & work by Ernest Alfred Vizetelly( Book )

13 editions published between 1904 and 1971 in English and French and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uncover the life of Émile Zola, naturalist writer and social reformer, in this important biography by Zola scholar Ernest Alfred Vizetelly. The book looks at Zola from both a literary standpoint and from the viewpoint of Zola as a social activist. Arranged chronologically, the book traces Zola's literary development from his earliest works to his very last ones. Vizetelly considers almost all of Zola's writings by assessing both the context in which they were written and by evaluating Zola's particular goals for his work throughout the different points in his career. In addition to grappling with Zola's literary life, the biography pays close attention to the effects of Zola's own life on his writing. Of particular interest is the Dreyfus affair, in which Zola played a key role in the liberation of Capitan Alfred Dreyfus. The book also offers a series of black and white photographs that help elucidate the life of this important writer and activist
