Description

With flawless construction and impeccable detail, Germinal chronicles the conflicts, lusts, and deprivation of life in the coal fields of nineteenth-century France.

A father and three of seven children work brutal hours, facing such hazards as landslides, fire, and poisoned air, to scrape together enough money for food. When their lodger, Etienne, shares ideas of a workers' revolt, the family gradually embraces his plans. Soon the settlement is aflame with resolve to strike for better wages and working conditions. Savage and horrifying events ensue as miners clash with management and with each other. Where people once merely struggled for food they are now dying of starvation. The hungry wage war against the sated, against the resignation of their peers, and ultimately against hunger itself.

Published in 1885, Germinal helped establish Emile Zola as the leading figure in the French school of naturalistic fiction. This masterpiece has been called one of the ten best novels in the French language.

display_description Este ebook presenta "Germinal ", con un sumario dinÆmico y detallado. Germinal (1885) es la decimotercera novela de los veinte volœmenes que Émile Zola escribið dentro de la serie Les Rougon-Macquart. Se suele considerar que es una de las mejores novelas jamÆs escritas en francØs. La novela es una dura y realista historia sobre una huelga de mineros en el norte de Francia en la dØcada de 1860. La historia se desarrolla en Francia, en un pueblo donde la vida gira en torno a las minas de carbðn. ẗienne Lantier abofetea a su patrðn y se queda sin empleo. Vagabundo y sin trabajo, halla nueva ocupaciðn en las minas de carbðn. Los rigores de la labor bajo tierra, las condiciones inhumanas, la injusticia, la crisis social, la revoluciðn y la huelga, la brutal represiðn, pero tambiØn el amor, son los protagonistas de Germinal, uno de los mÆs rotundos y vívidos alegatos nunca escritos en favor de los explotados y los oprimidos. Émile Zola (1840 - 1902) fue un escritor francØs, considerado como el padre y el mayor representante del Naturalismo. Tuvo un papel muy relevante en la revisiðn del proceso de Alfred Dreyfus, que le costð el exilio.
