Édition présentée et commentée par Gérard Gengembre (université de Caen) et Marie-Thérèse Ligot (université de Paris III). Le sang exécrable des Rougon Macquart court dans les veines de Jacques Lantier, fils de Gervaise et héritier d'une lignée maudite. Lantier a assisté au meurtre d'un notable par le chef de gare du Havre. Pour se protéger, la femme de ce dernier, Séverine, le séduit et devient sa maîtresse. Auprès d'elle, et dans les vapeurs de sa chère Lison, sa locomotive, Jacques pense pouvoir conjurer ses pulsions meurtrières, résister à " la bête enragée qu'il sent en lui " à la seule vue de la nudité d'une femme. Un voyage tragique commence, où la démence, la jalousie et le crime sont portés à l'incandescence dans le plus russe des romans français. Lire avec le texte intégral et la préface présentant l' uvre et son auteur. Comprendre avec " Les clés de l' uvre " : 18 pages pour aller à l'essentiel ; 94 pages pour approfondir.

From the Back Cover:

Did possessing and killing amount to the same thing deep within the dark recesses of the human beast? La Bete 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.

About the Author:

?mile Zola was a French writer who is recognized as an exemplar of literary naturalism and for his contributions to the development of theatrical naturalism. Zola s best-known literary works include the twenty-volume Les Rougon-Macquart, an epic work that examined the influences of violence, alcohol and prostitution on French society through the experiences of two families, the Rougons and the Macquarts. Other remarkable works by Zola include Contes ? Ninon, Les Myst?res de Marseille, and Th?r?se Raquin.

In addition to his literary contributions, Zola played a key role in the Dreyfus Affair of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. His newspaper article J Accuse accused the highest levels of the French military and government of obstruction of justice and anti-semitism, for which he was convicted of libel in 1898. After a brief period of exile in England, Zola returned to France where he died in 1902. ?mile Zola is buried in the Panth?on alongside other esteemed literary figures Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas.
