Si les contes et nouvelles de sa jeunesse frappent par leur fantaisie, les textes rassemblés dans ce quantity, parus entre 1875 et 1899, font de Zola, à l'égal d'un Maupassant, l'un des maîtres de los angeles nouvelle naturaliste, et l'un des maîtres de los angeles nouvelle tout courtroom. Tantôt librement inspirées de faits divers rapportés dans l. a. presse d'alors (L'Inondation), tantôt proches de l'étude sociale (Comment on meurt) ou de los angeles satire pittoresque - Les Coquillages de Monsieur Chabre est un petit chef-d'oeuvre d'amoralité sur le thème de l'adultère -, ces narrations donnent à voir le romancier en vacances, libéré du poids des théories, tout entier livré au plaisir d'écrire. Le résultat est souvent étonnant: explorant l. a. veine fantastique, Zola conte dans Angeline l'histoire d'une maison hantée; dans los angeles Mort d'Olivier Bécaille, ce sont ses propres obsessions qu'il dévoile, à travers l'angoissante aventure d'un homme enterré vivant... Qu'ils soient célèbres, comme L'Attaque du moulin qui figura en tête du recueil naturaliste des Soirées de Médan, ou injustement tombés dans l'oubli, ces récits constituent une lecture crucial pour tous ceux qui croient connaître l'auteur des Rougon-Macquart.

Example text

Leo comes under the care of his beloved Aunt Tatiana in Kazan and is educated by tutors. A sensitive and precocious child, Leo displays the keen awareness of death that will haunt him throughout his life. 1845Tolstoy decides to study law. While in school, he takes up a rigorous program of self-betterment, which includes physical exercise, exhaustive study, and the painstaking documentation of his moral development in a diary some have considered to be his writer舗s laboratory. 1847-1850Tolstoy quits his studies and returns to the family estate, which he has inherited.

The family idea is both anxious and troubled, as the novel舗s opening sentence announces: 舠Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way舡 (p. 5). The novel opens with a domestic crisis in the Oblonsky family, but this is only a frame for or introduction to the more insidious destruction of the Karenin family and the eponymous heroine that constitutes the main narrative of the novel. The larger backdrop of the novel is the reconstructionist period of Russian history following the sweeping reforms of the 1860s: the emancipation of the serfs, the restructuring of regional and local government, the institution of reforming committees, church and estate reform, the opening of the universities and professions to non-nobles and to women.

Nor is the sacrament of marriage, gilded and glorified as Tolstoy makes it in the luminous church-wedding scene, sufficient to prevent the stresses and fractures that eventually divide the family and destroy the home. As Dolly, tearfully watching the ceremony, meditates: 舠Among the brides that came back to her memory, she thought too of her darling Anna, of whose proposed divorce she had just been hearing. And she had stood just as innocent in orange flowers and bridal veil. And now? 舖It舗s terribly strange,舗 she said to herself舡 (p.
