About this ebook

De retour d'une campagne militaire, Jean Macquart est embauché comme ouvrier agricole au village de la Beauce. La campagne le séduit, tout comme la belle Françoise qu'il souhaite vivement épouser. Mais la vie de paysan est rude, Jean est étranger, et l'affaire d'héritage du père Fouan, l'oncle de Françoise, sème la discorde au village. Pour posséder ses terres, les héritiers sont prêt à manipuler, violer et tuer.Quinzième volet des « Rougon-Macquart », « La Terre » est sûrement le roman le plus sombre et le plus violent de Zola. À sa parution en 1887, il déchaîne les critiques. Au travers des violences psychologiques et physiques décrites sans tabou, Zola offre une vision noircie de la campagne du XIXème siècle.-

Emile Zola

Émile 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 à Ninon, Les Mystères de Marseille, and Thérèse 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. Émile Zola is buried in the Panthéon alongside other esteemed literary figures Victor Hugo and Alexandre Dumas.
