Contes et nouvelles (1864-1874) : Tome 1 by Émile Zola

By Émile Zola

Zola conteur et nouvelliste ? los angeles réponse a de quoi surprendre: on forget about le plus souvent que l'auteur des Rougon-Macquart, tout au lengthy de sa carrière, s'est adonné à l'écriture de récits brefs aux tonalités variées. Ce quantity rassemble près de trente textes rédigés pendant ses jeunes années de bohème et de journalisme. A leur lecture, c'est un Zola méconnu qui surgit soudain : fantaisiste, lorsqu'il met en scène l'errance dans Paris d'un lion et d'une hyène échappés du zoo (Une cage de bêtes féroces) ou lorsqu'il raconte l'histoire d'un homme qui décide, un beau matin, de faire trade de femmes laides (Les Repoussoirs), mais aussi promeneur inspiré et satiriste engagé... Qu'on ne s'y trompe pas : le romancier est déjà là tout entier. Qu'il croque le bourgeois (Villégiature) ou parodie l'engouement du public pour le roman populaire (Les Disparitions mystérieuses), qu'il s'indigne de l. a. misère (Le Chômage) ou raille l. a. montée en puissance de los angeles publicité (Une victime de l. a. réclame), le tempérament éclate à toutes les pages. Par los angeles richesse de leur thought, ces petits chefs-d'œuvre révèlent un auteur plus insaisissable et naturel que ne le laissent supposer les professions de foi naturalistes.

Both, clearly, form part of an initiatory process during which the descent into the realm of death gradually metamorphoses into a physical, social, and perhaps spiritual rebirth. The journey upward to the mouth of the volcanic crater that delivers the Lidenbrock expedition back to the world above ground amid an eruption of liquid rock is portrayed as a metaphorical rebirth that will in the end enable Axel to return home and marry the woman he has desired from the beginning of the novel.
