The kill by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published between 1927 and 1929 in French and Undetermined and held by 51 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
La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 45 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)

A priest in the house by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published between 1927 and 1928 in French and held by 44 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 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"--Page 4 of cover
Les Mystères de Marseille ... by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published between 1903 and 1928 in French and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comme Balzac et d'autres écrivains qu'il admirait, le jeune Zola, qui a 27 ans en 1867, s'essaie à la littérature alimentaire qu'est à ce moment le feuilleton. Pastichant à sa manière Eugène Sue et Paul Féval, il fait ses gammes avec ce gros roman rempli de rebondissements et de surprises, dans lequel apparaissent déjà ses préoccupations sociales. Intéressant pour le lecteur moyen et aussi pour celui qui connaît l'oeuvre ultérieure

Nineteenth novel by Émile Zola about adultery, murder, and revenge
L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 37 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

Dreyfus-affæren
The experimental novel, and other essays by Émile Zola( Book )

5 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 33 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

Money by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published between 1928 and 1997 in French and held by 27 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
