Zola, Emile; Vizetelly, Ernest Alfred - Introduction and Translation:

The Conquest of Plassans - Paperback

2005, ISBN: 9781595690487

ID: 711462788

New York - Berlin: Mondial, 2005. 307 Pages. No marks or stamps. Interior text pages are flawless. The Rougon family rises to fortune, and the town of Plassans (Aix-en-Provence) bows down before its power. But time passes and the clergy with their influence cause the town to choose a Royalist Marquis as deputy, and it becomes necessary to conquer it once again. Abb Faujas, by whom this conquest is achieved on behalf of the Empire, is a strongly conceived character, perhaps the most real of all the priests that are scattered through Zola's books. No other priestly creation of the author exceeds the stern, chaste, authoritative, ambitious Faujas, the man who subdues Plassans, and who wrecks the home of the Mouret family, with whom he lives. The book largely deals with the matter of the priest in the house, and towards the end Mouret, the husband who has been driven mad and shut up in a lunatic asylum, returns home and wreaks the most terrible vengeance upon those who have wronged him. The pages which deal with the madmans escape and his horrible revenge are certainly among the most powerful that Zola has ever written, and have been commended for their effectiveness by several of his leading critics. Emile Zola was born in Paris in 1840, the son of a Venetian engineer. He grew up in Aix-en-Provence and after an undistinguished school career and a brief period of dire poverty in Paris Zola joined the newly founded publishing firm of Hachette which he left in 1866 to live by his pen. He had already published a novel and his first collection of short stories. Other novels and stories followed until in 1871 Zola published the first volume of his Rougon-Macquart series, in which he illustrates the influence of heredity and environment on a wide range of characters. It was not until 1877 that his novel L 'Assommoir, a study of alcoholism in the working classes, brought him wealth and fame. The last of the Rougon-Macquart series appeared in 1893.. First Mondial Edition. Trade Paperback. As New. Illus. by Dhar, Uday K. - Cover Painting. 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"., Mondial, 2005
