This is a new translation of the seventh novel in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, L'Assommoir (1877) - the story of a woman's struggle for happiness in working-class Paris. A contemporary bestseller, it outraged conservative critics and launched a passionate debate about the legitimate scope of modern literature
The belly of Paris by Émile Zola( Book )

587 editions published between 1855 and 2018 in 13 languages and held by 4,257 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 )

537 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 4,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conservative and working-class, Jean Macquart is an experienced, middle-aged soldier in the French army, who has endured deep personal loss. When he first meets the wealthy and mercurial Maurice Levasseur, who never seems to have suffered, his hatred is immediate. But after they are thrown together during the disastrous Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71, the pair are compelled to understand one other. Forging a profound friendship, they must struggle together to endure a disorganised and brutal war, the savage destruction of France's Second Empire and the fall of Napoleon III

La Bête humaine by Émile Zola( Book )

625 editions published between 1840 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 3,368 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 )

393 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 2,500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Systematically exposing the contradictions that pervade bourgeois life, Zola reveals a multitude of adulteries and betrayals, a veritable 'melting pot' of moral and sexual degeneracy. This new translation captures the robustness of Zola's language and restores the omissions of earlier abridged versions
The dream by Émile Zola( Book )

554 editions published between 1888 and 2018 in 10 languages and held by 2,403 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."--BOOK JACKET

The incestuous affair of Renée Saccard and her stepson, Maxime, is set against the frenzied speculation of Renée's financier husband, Aristide, in a Paris 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. The second volume in Zola's great cycle of twenty novels, Les Rougon-Macquart, and the first to establish Paris, the capital of modernity, as the centre of Zola's narrative world

A priest in the house by Émile Zola( Book )

352 editions published between 1000 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 1,818 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 his cousin 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
The experimental novel, and other essays by Émile Zola( Book )

200 editions published between 1880 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,800 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
La curée by Émile Zola( Book )

456 editions published between 1850 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 1,784 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The death of Olivier Becaille by Émile Zola( )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,763 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!"
