Synopsis: Fils de Gervaise Macquart et de son amant Auguste Lantier, le jeune Étienne Lantier s'est fait renvoyer de son travail pour avoir donné une gifle à son employeur. Chômeur, il part, dans le Nord de la France, à la recherche d’un nouvel emploi. Il se fait embaucher aux mines de Montsou et connaît des conditions de travail effroyables (pour écrire ce roman, Émile Zola s'est beaucoup documenté sur le travail dans les mines). Il trouve à se loger dans une famille de mineurs, les Maheu, et tombe amoureux de la jeune Catherine. Mais celle-ci est la maîtresse d'un ouvrier brutal, Chaval, et bien qu'elle ne soit pas insensible à Étienne, elle se refuse à passer d'amant en amant.

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.
