About this title


*Henry Holt 1987 1st Hardcover Ed. Zola was a radical and rebel, a man of letters, a controversial journalize and an influence on all of European literature of his day. His most famous article was "J'accuse" about the Dreyfus affair. He was brought up on charges of defamation and subsequently fled to England. He was also disasterous in his private life, taking on a mistress with whom he had 2 children, after 18 years of marriage. He refused to abandon either woman. In today's society with everyone under a microscope, there is no counterpart to Zola and his accomplishments and failings. C8 1214

From Library Journal:

An historian's account of Zola's life, this biography considers Zola not only as journalist, novelist, and librettist but also as social crusader and chronicler of France's ills. In contrast to previous biographies, it does not contain detailed studies of his novels, but we learn about the reportlike methods he used to document each of his literary works. Thus, we are able to follow the evolution of his thought and social conscience from early manhood to his key role in the Dreyfus trials. Indeed, Schom devotes five of his 23 chapters to that case. Well-documented, yet not overly burdened with numerous scholarly footnotes, this biography should be of interest to anyone wishing to learn about Zola and the social problems of his day.
