KOSMA, J. : Bete humaine (La) by Émile Zola( Recording )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Texte enregistré. Des Batignolles à Auteuil, un mécanicien de locomotive erre, le couteau en main, hanté par une idée fixe : tuer une femme ... Dans le train qui mène au Havre, un couple poignarde sauvagement un notable du régime impérial, avant de le jeter sur la voie. A la Croix-de-Maufras, lieu-dit reculé, un garde-barrière empoisonne son épouse, dans l'espoir de mettre enfin la main sur son magot. La Bête humaine n'est pas seulement le grand roman ferroviaire du maître du naturalisme : c'est aussi son grand roman du crime - un Dahlia noir signé Zola, où chaque personnage semble être tour à tour le traqueur et la proie. En 1888, au moment d'entamer ce qui allait devenir l'un des volumes les plus célèbres du cycle des Rougon-Macquart, Zola écrivait : " Je voudrais quelque chose d'hallucinant, d'effroyable ..., qui reste à jamais dans la mémoire, qui donne un cauchemar à toute la France."
