  • ""Coal mines have become rare, but the miners of Germinal are immortal. This new edition of the novel, with a translation by Raymond MacKenzie, is an exquisite tribute to their work, their misery and their eventual revolt. In his introduction, David Baguley-one of the most respected authorities on the work of Zola-brilliantly illuminates the genetic, historical and aesthetic aspects of the novel. His lucid, sensitive and critical gaze highlights the real secrets of the work: its underlying anthropological and social investigation, the dark power of the tragic imagination and the brightness of s."@en
  • "Jedna z nejzdařilejších knih Zolova rozsáhlého románového cyklu, kterým chtěl autor zachytit "přírodopis a sociální historii jedné rodiny za druhého císařství". Román zobrazuje v prostředí severofrancouzského uhelného revíru těžké pracovní podmínky horníků a jejich stávkový boj. O tomto díle, napsaném na základě důkladného studia dokumentů o francouzských hornických stávkách v 19. století, se v doslovu říká: "Germinal tvoří nesporně mezník ve vývoji francouzského románu. Je prvním opravdu velkým uměleckým dílem o tvrdém životě a nerovném boji nové hybné síly nedávných i současných dějin - dělnictva, jež v Germinalu není jen pasívní složkou, jako tomu bylo např. v Zabijáku ... Germinal znamená předěl ve vývoji francouzského románu nejen proto, že je to první román zasvěcený dělnictvu a stávce, ale i tím, že dal přímý podnět k napsání celé řady děl s vyhraněnou sociální tematikou ...""

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences—biographical, historical, and literary—to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works.Émile Zola's unflinchingly told story of a daring coal miners' strike in northern France was published in 1885, when the prolific author was at the height of his powers. Today some readers believe this novel will prove to be his most enduring work. Spare yet compassionate, Germinal takes us from the comfortable homes of the bourgeoisie to the dark bowels of the earth, describing unbearable human suffering and exploitation in vivid and unsentimental prose.Étienne Lantier, a poor but spirited young laborer in search of work, shares the wretched lives of the coal miners of Le Voreux, where the brutish and dangerous working conditions consume the health and prospects of young and old, one generation after another. Impoverished, ill, and hungry, the miners inspire Étienne to attempt a revolt against the Company, an overthrow of “the tyranny of capital, which was starving the worker. They answer his desperate call for a strike that grows increasingly violent and divisive, testing loyalties and endangering Étienne's life even as it offers the workers their only hope of a decent existence. In a harrowing climax, the unforeseen consequences of the strike threaten to engulf them all in disaster.Dominique Jullien is a professor of French at Columbia University and the University of California–Santa Barbara, and the editor in chief of the Romanic Review. Her books include Proust et ses modèles: Les Mille et une Nuits et les Mémoires de Saint-Simon and Récits du Nouveau Monde: les Voyageurs français en Amérique de Chateaubriand à nos jours. She has published numerous articles on nineteenth- and twentieth-century literature, including several on Émile Zola."

  • "Generally considered the greatest of Emile Zola's twenty novel Rougon-Macquart cycle. Of these, Germinal is the most concerned with the daily life of the working poor, expressings outrage at the exploitation of the many by the few, but also showing humanity's capacity for compassion and hope. Etienne Lantier, an unemployed railway worker, is a clever but uneducated young man with a dangerous temper. Forced to take a back-breaking job at Le Voreux mine when he cannot get other work, he discovers that his fellow miners are ill, hungry, and in debt, unable to feed and clothe their families. When conditions in the mining community deteriorate even further, Lantier finds himself leading a strike that could mean starvation or salvation for all. ."

En phrases rapides, il remontait au premier Maheu, il montrait toute cette famille usée à la mine, mangée par la Compagnie, plus affamée après cent ans de travail ; et, devant elle, il mettait ensuite les ventres de la Régie, qui suaient l'argent, toute la bande des actionnaires entretenus comme des filles."

  • "Germinal is considered to be the best of the series and also Zolaʹs crowning achievement -- a masterpiece. Its purpose is to expose and lament the horrendous and inhumane working and living conditions of miners in rural France during the 1860s. Germinal vilifies the excesses and indulgencies of the bourgeoisie, while lauding Socialism and Darwinism. Etienne Lantier, the main character is an outsider -- a wandering mechanic who is searching for employment. His rise to leadership in the mining community is almost accidental and highly unlikely, in that he never intended to become a worker, nor did he plan to stay in the community. Yet, as he spends time with these poor creatures, he realizes that someone must force a change -- soon, after hours of study and correspondence with strike leaders in Paris -- he unites the miners and leads a revolt, with heartbreaking consequences."
  • "During the Second Empire, Etienne Lantier, an unemployed railway worker, experiences the miserable life of the coal miners in northern France and enters the struggle between capital and labor. In the Maheus family, the father and three of seven children work brutal hours to extract coal far beneath the earth amid hazards of landslides, fire, poisoned air, and poisoned health. Then comes the idea of a workers' revolt, and soon the settlement is aflame. Zola chronicles the conflicts, lusts, and deprivation of life in the coal fields of nineteenth-century France."@en
  • "The story centers on Étienne Lantier, a young migrant worker who arrives at the coalmining town of Montsou in search of work as a coalminer. Set against a backdrop of extreme poverty and oppression, Germinal is the story of the idealistic but naive Étienne, who embraces the ideals of the socialistic movement and goes on to lead a strike of the coalminers with disastrous consequences.--Back cover."

  • "& Quot; 'GERMINAL' was published in 1885, after occupying Zola during the previous year. In accordance with his usual custom--but to a greater extent than with any other of his books except La Débâcle--he accumulated material beforehand. For six months he travelled about the coal-mining district in northern France and Belgium, especially the Borinage around Mons, note-book in hand. 'He was inquisitive, was that gentleman', miner told Sherard who visited the neighbourhood at a later period and found that the miners in every village knew Germinal. That was a tribute of admiration the book deserve."@en
  • "Maheu is a simple miner who struggles to make a life for his wife and seven children whilst working in the mines of Le Voreux."
  • "Zola's masterpiece of working life, Germinal (1885), exposes the inhuman conditions of miners in northern France in the 1860s. By Zola's death in 1902 it had come to symbolize the call for freedom from oppression so forcefully that the crowd which gathered at his State funeral chanted "Germinal! Germinal!" While it is a dramatic novel of working life and everyday relationships, Germinal is also a complex novel of ideas, given fresh vigor and power in this new translation. It is also the thirteenth book in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, which celebrates its centenary in October 1993 with a new film version of Germinal starring Gerard Depardieu."
