    About “Émile Zola

    • Émile Zola

      mile Fran ois Zola was an influential French novelist, the most important example of the literary school of naturalism, and a major figure in the political liberalization of France.More than half of Zola s novels were part of a set of 20 books collectively known as Les Rougon Macquart Unlike Balzac who in the midst of his literary career resynthesized his work into La Com die Humaine, Zola from the start at the age of 28 had thought of the complete layout of the series Set in France s Second Empire, the series traces the environmental influences of violence, alcohol and prostitution which became prevalent during the second wave of the Industrial Revolution The series examines two branches of a family the respectable that is, legitimate Rougons and the disreputable illegitimate Macquarts for five generations.As he described his plans for the series, I want to portray, at the outset of a century of liberty and truth, a family that cannot restrain itself in its rush to possess all the good things that progress is making available and is derailed by its own momentum, the fatal convulsions that accompany the birth of a new world Although Zola and C zanne were friends from childhood, they broke in later life over Zola s fictionalized depiction of C zanne and the Bohemian life of painters in his novel L uvre The Masterpiece, 1886.From 1877 with the publication of l Assommoir, mile Zola became wealthy, he was better paid than Victor Hugo, for example He became a figurehead among the literary bourgeoisie and organized cultural dinners with Guy de Maupassant, Joris Karl Huysmans and other writers at his luxurious villa in Medan near Paris after 1880 Germinal in 1885, then the three cities , Lourdes in 1894, Rome in 1896 and Paris in 1897, established Zola as a successful author.The self proclaimed leader of French naturalism, Zola s works inspired operas such as those of Gustave Charpentier, notably Louise in the 1890s His works, inspired by the concepts of heredity Claude Bernard , social manichaeism and idealistic socialism, resonate with those of Nadar, Manet and subsequently Flaubert.

    • His Excellency Eugene Rougon is the sixth volume of the Rougon-Macquart.I do not dwell to do yet another summary of the novel, other critics abound.At the end of this reading, as I write my review, I am a bit annoyed.If I appreciate the character of Eugene Rougon, so this excursion in the functioning of the Empire have entertained me, the novel does not lack less action We do not get bored but history has little thrilling, it's hard to see where Zola is coming from.Here's a novel increasingly m [...]


    • I had met Eugène Rougon in Zola's first book of the Rougon-Macquart series, The Fortune of the Rougons. The oldest son of Pierre and Felicité Rougon, he had been stationed in Paris, working for the cause of Louis-Napoléon Buonaparte as Emperor Napoleon III. In Son Excellence, Eugène Rougon, we encounter Rougon as a man in disgrace, a man who has offended the Emperor and who has decided to resign before he is formally removed from office. As he packs up his documents, a myriad of characters f [...]


    • Pored "Nane", ova knjiga mi je najveće Zolino razočaranje. Još kad se setim da sam je jurila po antikvarnicama i jedva je ulovila, čekala mesecima da je pročitamLikovi nula, puni protivrečnosti, nerazrađeni, nezanimljivi, a sam zaplet je za zevanje. Ežen je ambiciozni sin Pjera Rugona od koga svi mnogo očekuju i koji se od cele ove porodične dinastije najviše uspeo na društvenoj i političkoj lestvici. Dakle, očekivala sam nemilosrdne političke borbe, sjaj francuskog dvora, pronicl [...]


    • Ernest Alfred Vizetelly, Zola scholar and translator, is the worst. This is the second Vizetelly translation I've read, and while I'm not really in the position to take umbrage with a French-to-English translation, I cannot stand the guy's prefaces. First of all, they're the length of a Zola chapter, which is completely unnecessary. Listen, V: this isn't Pride and Prejudice or The Picture of Dorian Gray. It isn't even Germinal. This isn't a book where you need to examine the plot of the book in [...]


    • A look at the seedy side of French politics where power is gotten and kept according to favors granted. A fascinating slice of an era.


    • This book often gets lackluster reviews, but if this is considered among the worst of Zola's "Rougon-Macquart" novels, I look forward to reading more of them. This book isn't as interesting as the other two in the cycle I've read ("The Fortunes of the Rougons" and "The Drinking Den") but it's not a bad novel.The story begins in the French legislature, everyone stares about bored and weary. Their only interest is in whether the premier of the Corps législatif Eugene Rougon will resign or not due [...]


    • Politicians and men are different species…' Yes, beware of women,' Rougon repeated, pausing after each word so as to glance at his papers. ' When a woman does not put a crown on your head she slips a halter round your neck. At our age a man's heart wants as carefully looking after as his stomach.' (Kindle Locations 710-712)Then JM. Kahn, gazing blankly into the distance, murmured as though he were speaking to himself : ' A man knows when he falls, but never knows whether he will rise again.' ( [...]


    • This is the second novel in Zola's recommended reading order of "Les Rougons-Macquart". Zola breathes fever into the dictum that "man is wolf to man". The book centers on Eugene Rougon, the oldest son of that branch of the family. Rougon is intimately involved as Minister in several Second Empire governments, knows the Emperor, and has a coterie of ravenous political hounds for whom he is the alpha male. The imagery of rabid dogs is used throughout. Rougon himself is styled as the old man of the [...]


    • This is pure politics of the Second Empire. The preface by the translator Vizetelly indicates this is a very good description of what it was like during the reign of Napoleon III. I found myself continuously comparing it to current events. I think one could find something to nod in recognition during almost any presidency as I'm sure there is always at least one event/policy that steps out of bounds. It seems Napoleon lived entirely for the purpose of abuse of power. Did his puppet ministers inv [...]


    • I love reading how the guy crawls like a little maggot. Oh how wonderfully his tale of sad sad wooing is told. I think what's important here is that money cannot get you everything in life. The underlying story is timeless. The fem protagonist is a little annoying, or rather usually I'd think her sooo bitchy but maybe having the male protagonist in comparison, I found the woman just so perfect for the story. They balance the story so that it flows in unison.


    • A strikingly still relevant account of the rise and fall of your typical bourgeois politician - coming to power to fill the trough of his friends and willing to change his principles 180 degrees to stay in power. Not nearly as good as "Money," but not too shabby.


    • You know, I'm glad I read this book, but I'm also happy that it wasn't the first or only book in the Les Rougon-Macquart series that I've read. Let's just leave it at that.


    • Publicado em 1876 é o sexto volume da saga dos Rougon-Macquart e traz como protagonista Eugene Rougon, segunda geração da família.A ação se passa em 1856, 5 anos após o golpe empreendido por Napoleão III, durante o qual Eugene soube se posicionar ao lado de quem estava no poder. Com isso se torna um ministro poderoso, adulado por todos que querem obter algum benefício. Apesar de retratar algo que ocorreu há cerca de 150 anos, podemos notar que nada mudou e que o jogo de poder e interes [...]


    • Un Zola plus proche des sphères du pouvoir, avec de grandes images de l'assemblée et de la cour impériale, et un parfum d'intrigue omniprésent. Mais un peu moins fort que d'autres volumes de la série.


    • A rather slow novel, apparently a fictional version of actual events during the reign of Napoleon 3. Of more interest to historians than general readers perhaps.



    • According to E.A. Vizetelly, Zola recommended a reading order for the 20 volumes of the Rougon Macquart cycle which differs (apart from the first and last volumes) from the publication order. 'Son Excellence Eugene Rougon', the 6th in publication order, comes second on this list. Set in Paris, it follows the political fortunes of the eldest of the Rougon brothers (first seen in 'La Fortune des Rougon') in the court of Napoleon II. Eugene Rougon has an uncomplicated lust for power and authority w [...]


    • His Excellency Eugene Rougon (1876) is the sixth published novel of the Rougon-Macquart series, but the second one to read if you follow the suggested order. It’s the riveting story of Eugène Rougon, the eldest son of Pierre and Félicité Rougon who are first introduced to the reader in The Fortune of the Rougons. (See my thoughts about it here). In The Fortune of the Rougons Eugene makes a late appearance as a cunning manipulator who was involved in the 1851 coup d’état that put Napoleon [...]


    • 3.9/5Great book as always, perhaps not a favourite as The Belly of Paris or Nana, but still it is pretty good. Basically, it tells the rise, and fall, and rise, and fall, etc of Eugène Rougon in French politics. Whether he is a competent guy, we don't really no, but for sure there is a lot of corruption and favours going on. When he first falls from grace with the Emperor, his friends, who have been making money out of him (literally), conspire to bring him back.But, are they grateful once he's [...]


    • So I continue the quest to read the entire Rougon-Macquart series by Emile Zola, going by his suggested order as provided in the last book Le Docteur Pascal. This differs greatly from the order in which the books were published between 1871-1893. Coincidentally, I'm also reading a biography of Eugenie, Empress of France, concurrently, which provides some nice historical reference points as the books take place during the Second Empire of France.I'm glad that I haven't had a moment to write the r [...]


    • Zola does not offer an optimistic view on politics. From the uninterested members of the legislative assembly, where a green curtain covers the effigy of the previous monarch and the journalists' benches have been closed off, via the clique of Rougon's sycophants and the pompous baptism of the imperial prince, to the emperor himself who has little other interest than to preserve the status quo that guarantees his personal power, every visible and invisible element of politics is directed by pers [...]


    • Eugène Rougon, fils de Félicité et de Pierre Rougon, poursuit la soif ascension sociale dévorant une partie de la famille. Nous le retrouvons ainsi à l'un des postes les plus élevés du second empire. Entre moments de grâce et déconvenues, le sixième tome de la saga nous transporte au beau milieu de l'appareil politique mis en place par Napoléon III. Et c'est une très belle leçon d'histoire et de politique sur cette période. L'intrigue d'autant plus passionnante, qu'à quelques dét [...]


    • Some hundred and thirty odd years after publication any review I give of this is probably not going to add much to the general discussion but I have to say that I found this to be a most wonderful book. Zola's writing flows in a way that many modern writers seem to have forgotten and the scenes that he paints are realistic with a healthy gloss of sarcasm.The most interesting thing from an historical perspective is not what we learn about 2nd Empire France, though we do learn a lot, but what we c [...]


    • Whereas The Fortunes of the Rougon focuses on small town politics, the second book in the Rougon-Macquart cycle (in Zola's preferred reading order) examines the intrigues of the highest levels of the empire. It's a bit of a slow burn, with the second half being a little more interesting than the first. We again see a Rougon man in a self-destructive relationship with a stronger woman who will ultimately destroy him. This is perhaps my least favorite Zola novel so far, only because we don't get m [...]


    • Mon retour à Zola. Mon objectif de lire toute la série avance bien lentement (et cela dure depuis trois ans ou quatre, donc je ne suis vraiment pas pressée), mais comme toujours, Zola ne me déçoit pas. Jamais.Ma connaissance de l'Empire n'est malheureusement pas très étendue, mais ce roman est un bon portrait des manigances politiques et de la situation sous Napoléon III. C'est surtout un excellent portrait d'un homme grisé par le pouvoir politique, et affaibli par le pouvoir de l'amour [...]


    • И всё-таки Ругон не так важен для описываемого, как отражение исторических событий на страницах. Эжен стал элементом декораций, выполняя отведённую роль статиста, пока перед читателем Эмиль будет вырисовывать фигуру Наполеона III, покажет его досут и устремления. Ничего по [...]


    • Ce roman fut une déception.J'avais l'impression de ne pas lire Zola. Tout simplement.Est-ce du au fait, que l'entourage mondain m'ait déplu, comparé à la dépravation des autres entourages des tomes de la série ? C'est fortement possible. Pour moi, les personnages étaient trop lisses et pas assez zoalien.Le personnage de Rougon est assez fade par ailleurs, seuls quelques lignes sont consacrées à son ascendance. De plus, sa relation avec Clorinde quelque peu perverse par moment est tout a [...]


    • "Rougon, vexed at finding all these people present, felt inclined to take up his hat; however, he turned round and walked up to Clorinde; then raising his head, he said with a smile, ‘Didn’t you ask me to call because you had something to show me?’She did not immediately reply, but maintained her serious pose; so he continued: 'what is it you that you wanted to show me?'‘Myself,’ she answered"d that's the main romantic tension of this novel. But, this is primarily a novel about Napoleo [...]


    • Cet excellent livre de la série des Rougon-Macquart s'attaque au monde politique. On suit ici Eugène Rougon de son ascension à sa chute politique. Tout comme aujourd'hui, le monde de la politique est un monde de magouille où les amis sont prêt à se poignarder dans le dos pour prendre la place de l'autre. C'est un monde où les connexions plutôt que les compétences aident à obtenir des postes, des subventions ou des droits. Lorsqu'on lit ce livre, on se rends compte que ce milieu n'a pas [...]
