This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Rougon-Macquart Cycle (All 20 Unabridged Novels in one volume)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Les Rougon-Macquart is the collective title given to a cycle of twenty novels by French writer Émile Zola. Subtitled Histoire naturelle et sociale d'une famille sous le Second Empire (Natural and social history of a family under the Second Empire), it follows the life of a fictional family living during the Second French Empire (1852–1870) and is an example of French naturalism. Table of Contents: 1.La Fortune des Rougon (1871) 2.La Curée (1871-2) 3.Le Ventre de Paris (1873) 4.La Conquête de Plassans (1874) 5.La Faute de l'Abbé Mouret (1875) 6.Son Excellence Eugène Rougon (1876) 7.L'Assommoir (1877) 8.Une Page d'amour (1878) 9.Nana (1880) 10.Pot-Bouille (1882) 11.Au Bonheur des Dames (1883) 12.La Joie de vivre (1884) 13.Germinal (1885) 14.L'Œuvre (1886) 15.La Terre (1887) 16.Le Rêve (1888) 17.La Bête humaine (1890) 18.L'Argent (1891) 19.La Débâcle (1892) 20.Le Docteur Pascal (1893) The series began with La Fortune des Rougon (The Fortune of the Rougons), which introduces the Rougons and the Macquarts. Zola examines the impact of environment by varying the social, economic, and professional milieu in which each novel takes place. La Curée (The Kill) explores the land speculation and financial dealings that accompanied the renovation of Paris during the Second Empire. Le Ventre de Paris (Savage Paris; also translated as The Fat and the Thin) examines the structure of the Halles, the vast central marketplace of Paris. Son Excellence Eugène Rougon (His Excellency Eugène Rougon) traces the machinations and maneuverings of cabinet officials in Napoleon III’s government. L’Assommoir ( Drunkard) shows the effects of alcoholism in a working-class neighbourhood by focusing on the rise and decline of a laundress, Gervaise Macquart. Nana follows the life of Gervaise’s daughter as her economic circumstances and hereditary penchants lead her to a career as an actress, then a courtesan. Au Bonheur des dames (Ladies’ Delight) depicts the mechanisms of a new economic entity, the department store, and its impact on smaller merchants. Germinal depicts life in a mining community by highlighting relations between the bourgeoisie and the working class. A quite different work, L’Oeuvre (The Masterpiece), explores the milieu of the art world and the relationships among the arts through an examination of the friendship between an Impressionist painter, Claude Lantier, and a naturalist novelist, Pierre Sandoz. In La Terre (Earth) Zola depicts what he considered to be the sordid lust for land among the French peasantry. In La Bête humaine (The Human Beast) he analyzes the hereditary urge to kill that haunts the Lantier branch of the family. La Débâcle (The Debacle) traces both the defeat of the French army by the Germans at the Battle of Sedan in 1870 and the anarchist uprising of the Paris Commune. Finally, in Le Docteur Pascal (Doctor Pascal) he uses the main character, the doctor Pascal Rougon, armed with a genealogical tree of the Rougon-Macquart family published with the novel, to expound the theories of heredity underlying the entire series. Émile Zola (1840 – 1902), French novelist, critic, and political activist who was the most prominent French novelist of the late 19th century. He was noted for his theories of naturalism, which underlie his monumental 20-novel series Les Rougon-Macquart, and for his intervention in the Dreyfus Affair through his famous open letter, “J’accuse.”

Anna Karenina Two Unabridged Translations In One Premium Edition World Classics Series

ISBN : 9788026852421
Genre : Fiction
File Size : 90.42 MB
Format : PDF
Download : 977

This carefully crafted ebook: “ANNA KARENINA – Two Unabridged Translations in One Premium Edition (World Classics Series)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Anna Karenina is the story of a married aristocrat/socialite and her affair with the affluent Count Vronsky. The story opens when she arrives in the midst of a family broken up by her brother's unbridled womanizing—something that prefigures her own later situation, though she would experience less tolerance by others. A bachelor, Vronsky is eager to marry her if she will agree to leave her husband Karenin, a senior government official, but she is vulnerable to the pressures of Russian social norms, the moral laws of the Russian Orthodox Church, her own insecurities, and Karenin's indecision. Although Vronsky and Anna go to Italy, where they can be together, they have trouble making friends. Back in Russia, she is shunned, becoming further isolated and anxious, while Vronsky pursues his social life... Widely considered a pinnacle in realist fiction, Tolstoy considered Anna Karenina his first real novel and Dostoevsky declared it to be "flawless as a work of art".His opinion was shared by Vladimir Nabokov, who especially admired "the flawless magic of Tolstoy's style", and by William Faulkner, who described the novel as "the best ever written". About the Maude translation: the translation by Aylmer Maude and Louise Shanks Maude is highly considered by scholars. This unabridged translation from the original Russian was originally published in 1918.The Maudes were classical translators of Leo Tolstoy who worked directly with the author and gained his personal endorsement. About the Garnett translation: Constance Garnett's translation of Anna Karenina is still among the best. Some scholars feel that her language is closer to the 19th-century sense of the original. Garnett translated seventy volumes of Russian prose for publication, including all of Dostoyevsky's novels.

It is one of Blackwood's best known works and has been influential on a number of later writers. Horror author H.P. Lovecraft considered it to be the finest supernatural tale in English literature. "The Willows" is an example of early modern horror and is connected within the literary tradition of weird fiction. Two friends are midway on a canoe trip down the Danube River. Throughout the story Blackwood personifies the surrounding environment--river, sun, wind--and imbues them with a powerful and ultimately threatening character. Most ominous are the masses of dense, desultory, menacing willows, which "moved of their own will as though alive, and they touched, by some incalculable method, my own keen sense of the horrible." Just after managing to land their canoe for the evening on the shifting, sandy islands just downstream across the Austria/Hungary frontier, the main character reflects on the river's potency, human qualities and will: Sleepy at first, but later developing violent desires as it became conscious of its deep soul, it rolled, like some huge fluid being, through all the countries we had passed, holding our little craft on its mighty shoulders, playing roughly with us sometimes, yet always friendly and well-meaning, till at length we had come inevitably to regard it as a Great Personage.
