About this ebook

Este ebook presenta "Yo acuso" con un sumario dinámico y detallado. En 1894, el caso Dreyfus sale a la luz, y se acusa al capitán Alfred Dreyfus, de treinta y cinco años, judío y alsaciano, de alta traición. Pese a las declaraciones de inocencia del acusado, declaraciones que no se hacen públicas, se lo condena a cumplir cadena perpetua en la isla del Diablo, en la Guayana francesa. En marzo de 1896, el nuevo responsable del Servicio de Información (Service de Renseignements), el coronel Picquart, descubre un telegrama que no deja dudas de que Dreyfus no es el informador de los alemanes en el Estado Mayor francés, sino que el verdadero traidor había sido el comandante Ferdinand Walsin Esterhazy. Picquart informa a sus superiores y expresa su convicción de que fue un error atribuir el escrito a Dreyfus. No obstante, el Estado Mayor destina a Picquart a la frontera del este y, posteriormente, a Túnez. Los tribunales militares se niegan a revisar el caso Dreyfus y tratan de sofocar el escándalo, pero no logran evitar que algunos rumores alerten a personalidades de la izquierda. En 1897, con la ayuda del periodista Bernard Lazare, del senador Scheurer-Kestner y del diputado Joseph Reinach, Mathieu Dreyfus, hermano de Alfred, promueve una campaña en Le Figaro para exigir que se investigue a Esterhazy y se revise el juicio de 1894. Los conservadores reaccionan de inmediato. Indignado, Émile Zola, próximo a la izquierda radical y a grupos socialistas, entra en liza. La campaña de Le Figaro rompe la conspiración de silencio. En diciembre de 1897, Esterhazy, cuya letra es idéntica a la de los facsimiles del escrito que la prensa ha reproducido, es inculpado y comparece ante un tribunal militar; los jueces lo absuelven en enero de 1898....

Émile Zola

Émile Zola (1840-1902) was a French novelist, journalist, and playwright. Born in Paris to a French mother and Italian father, Zola was raised in Aix-en-Provence. At 18, Zola moved back to Paris, where he befriended Paul Cézanne and began his writing career. During this early period, Zola worked as a clerk for a publisher while writing literary and art reviews as well as political journalism for local newspapers. Following the success of his novel Thérèse Raquin (1867), Zola began a series of twenty novels known as Les Rougon-Macquart, a sprawling collection following the fates of a single family living under the Second Empire of Napoleon III. Zola’s work earned him a reputation as a leading figure in literary naturalism, a style noted for its rejection of Romanticism in favor of detachment, rationalism, and social commentary. Following the infamous Dreyfus affair of 1894, in which a French-Jewish artillery officer was falsely convicted of spying for the German Embassy, Zola wrote a scathing open letter to French President Félix Faure accusing the government and military of antisemitism and obstruction of justice. Having sacrificed his reputation as a writer and intellectual, Zola helped reverse public opinion on the affair, placing pressure on the government that led to Dreyfus’ full exoneration in 1906. Nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901 and 1902, Zola is considered one of the most influential and talented writers in French history.
