"Rosalie is out," Helene began again, "but she will be here very soon. Her aunt tells me you are her sweetheart."

To this the little soldier vouchsafed no reply, but hung his head, laughing awkwardly, and scraping the carpet with the tip of his boot.

"Then you will have to marry her when you leave the army?" Helene continued questioning.

"Yes, to be sure!" exclaimed he, his face turning very red. "Yes, of course; we are engaged!" And, won over by the kindly manners of the lady, he made up his mind to speak out, his fingers still playing with his cap. "You know it's an old story. When we were quite children, we used to go thieving together. We used to get switched; oh yes, that's true! I must tell you that the Lacours and the Pichons lived in the same lane, and were next-door neighbors. And so Rosalie and myself were almost. . . Read More

"O pagină de dragoste" este un roman tipic lui Emile Zola: este un roman în care educația joacă rolul principal. E vorba de acea educație (descrisă adesea prin sfiiciune) care primează ORICE, o educație care -după cum se va înfățișa (subtil) în roman- poate da naștere unei iubiri fără preget, deoare

” Rimaneva sola, e le pareva che una pagina venisse strappata dal quaderno della sua vita.”

Pubblicato nel 1878, Une page d'amour è l'ottavo romanzo del Ciclo dei Rougon- Maquart.

Il tema è quello della passione che si fa largo giorno dopo giorno tra la vedova Hélène Mouret, e il dottore Henri Deb

Some extremely interesting, and remarkably well done, stuff going on here. Some far below the surface, some very much (and occasionally too much) in your face. The critique in the last 50 pages or so is brutal and unadorned. I genuinely felt my body tense in revulsion as the bourgeois performance ar

Purtroppo non sempre i grandi autori ci "azzeccano" e qualche "sòla", se la devono lasciare dietro anche loro.
La perizia descrittiva di Zola sembra, in questo romanzo, un'onda di piena, un diluvio come quello che spazzerà Parigi circa a metà di questa storia. 5 parti, ciascuna si conclude con pagine

Encore une fois, un Zola que j'ai adoré ! On s'éloigne des grands drames historiques, sociaux, aux critiques très acerbes comme précédemment avec "L'Assommoir" pour quelque chose de plus intime. Pourtant, le drame est toujours là ! J'ai été transportée par cette mère, Hélène, qui se rend malade de l

In one of the novels, the eighth in the Rougon-Macquart saga, the action occurs at Passy in Paris. The plot centres on three main characters: Jeanne, an 11-year-old girl, Hélène, her mother and the doctor. The mother is a saint who suffers from her daughter's infernal name, who is always sick with c

Pročitah da je Zola u jednom pismu napisao o ovom romanu "Bojim se da sam skrenuo s pravog puta i da pišem tonom koji ne dopušta nikakav utisak. Uspjeh će zacijelo biti osrednji. Htio sam da u mom ciklusu ima svih nota, iako nisam zadovoljan, nikada neću zažaliti što sam napisao Stranicu ljubavi." D

A Love Story begins with the predictable melodrama and sentimentality of a romance novel and ends with Zola’s trademark disgust with the hypocrisy of humanity. He does so through the lens of Rougon-Macquart cycle, which portrays social life in France’s Second Empire. His target this time is the bour

Paris'te Emile Zola'nın anıt mezarını ziyaret ettikten sonra dönüşte okumaya başladığım bir kitaptı. Kitabı Paris'i gördükten sonra okuduğuma oldukça memnunum. Zira kitap boyunca Zola Paris manzaralarından oluşan bir panorama ile sadece orada yaşanan bu olayı değil aynı zamanda Paris'i ve onun güze
