La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did possessing and killing amount to the same thing deep within the dark recesses of the human beast? La Bête humaine (1890), the seventeenth novel in the Rougon-Macquart series, is one of Zola's most violent and explicit works. 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. - Back cover

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 province française sous l'Empire. Le second roman de Zola sur les prêtres. L'auteur aborde ici le rôle temporel du clergé, son influence dans l'instauration du pouvoir politique né du coup d'Etat de 1851 (selon J.P. Arrou-Vignod)
Les Mystères de Marseille ... by Émile Zola( Book )

6 editions published between 1903 and 1928 in French and held by 41 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

L'Assommoir by Émile Zola( Book )

4 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 36 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

Money by Émile Zola( Book )

2 editions published in 1928 in French and held by 26 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
