One thought on “Germinal

  1. Lisa

    tienne Lantier Claude, the painter s brother Nana, the whore s brother Jacques, the murderer s brother Gervaise, the alcoholic s son I know this part of the Rougon Macquart family tree better than any other, and each of the family members stands for a novel that sends a shiver down my spine of reading delight and sorrowful mourning over the human condition Germinal is a masterpiece in its own right, but one can t help thinking of the social background of the young man wandering up the street in [...]

    Emile Zola s acknowledged masterpiece written in 1885, the politics are dated as history has shown, his overemphasis on sex, research and common sense have refuted, this is the 19th century, not the 21st, trying to sell books Nana, made the same error his characters are symbols than real human beings, with a quite melodramatic plot even, yet Germinal, is a superb novel, which will capture your total interest, the reader will learn much about little known aspects, the dangers , of coal mining i [...]

    I am little concerned with beauty or perfection I don t care for the great centuries All I care about is life, struggle, intensity Emile ZolaLet me draw a scene for you I appreciate your patience as I am going to write it as vividly as possible.The lady on the chair is well past her prime 40 maybe with her youthful rosiness and smooth, taut skin beginning to give away under the suffocating reality in which she and her family are haplessly ensconced The room in which she sits is tiny, but has a p [...]

    This novel is about as grim and horrendous as literature gets Instead of ranting about the history of human suffering at various pitches of bowel plopping rage, let me take a facetious route Let me instead discuss various mining experiences lived out on the Sega Mega Drive Remember Mega Bomberman Those who do will remember the mine level.This level was pivotal in the game, since here a remote controlled power up was available which was crucial for facing down the final boss, whose beardy metamo [...]

    Within the first few pages of Zola s striking masterpiece I was completely sucked into his vision of the poverty suffering and slave driven folk of the mining world, first published in 1885 it holds the power and importance for today As we start with young unemployed railway worker Etienne Lantier wondering the cold and punishing landscape of northern France in search of work, and without a penny to his name is desperate to land just about anything that pays After stumbling into a small mining c [...]

    GERMINAL what can I say I studied this book at university and my whole degree course was worth the time and effort just for introducing me to the author GERMINAL now stands as my favourite book of all time, an intense masterpiece of fiction.The basic storyline is a miner s strike It doesn t sound too good or too detailed, but it s all here politics, chaos, social realism, a love story, an action story, heroes and villains, the good and the bad Yes, it is melodramatic, but I guess I like melodram [...]

    Tivesse Gustave Dor criado gravuras para Germinal, como criou para o Inferno de Dante, e n o haveria grande diferen a entre os dois casos T las ia feito nos mesmos tons l gubres, cinzentos e tristes, mas em vez dos dem nios, das serpentes e das chamas, seria a cobi a humana, a fome e a mis ria a ilustr las Aqui as almas ainda habitam os corpos e descem ao inferno das minas, com fome, a tiritar de frio ou a suar de calor, exaustos, doentes, sem esperan a, tratados como bichos e que s como bichos [...]

    Three things 1 Zola s writing of abuse and domestic violence is breathtakingly modern 2 Poor old horse and 3 This novel contains a scene in which someone tears a dead man s dick off and parades it around on a stick.

    Felt like reading a Naturlist, and I remembered Zola Germinal was the only Zola novel on the library shelf, and I chose it merely in deferrence to the author Little did I know that many critics believe Germinal is one of the 10 best French novels ever written I like stories where people are ground down by nature poverty, weather, work conditions, hunger and the lower economic demographic is forced to suffer and survive The Industrial Revolution offered so many ways to catalogue the suffering of [...]

    Proletarios de todos los pa ses, un os Me pregunto si esta obra literaria, que nos abraza y nos abrasa, habr sido le da alguna vez por alg n minero Germinal es una novela de tintes pol ticos y sociales o es un relato humanista o es, tal vez, solamente una novela sin mayores pretensiones producto del naturalismo Aunque el ep grafe de esta rese a abriga un sue o de uni n de los oprimidos y un velado llamado a una revuelta social, considero que esta obra aborda ambas tem ticas, tanto la pol tica y [...]

    Zola considerado o pai do naturalismo liter rio, mas um naturalismo muito particular que vem carregado de simbolismo e melodrama Zola parte de uma abordagem panflet ria assente em intensidade ret rica, mas n o deixa de lado toda a maquinaria da narrativa e persuas o dram tica para nos envolver e ao mesmo tempo instigar reflex o O resultado uma obra muito forte que nunca se verga porque n o procura dar respostas, exatamente por fugir ao panfleto e porque est mais interessada em questionar o fundo [...]

    Zola had a very structured technique for the industrial production of novels, he would decide on where the action would take place and who the principal characters would be Les Rougon Macquart gave him a family tree and a glorious mess of hereditary tendencies and illnesses to work within, the setting would be interrogated thoroughly and mined out In researching Germinal Zola visited a coal mine and was intrigued by the big strong horses working underground how, he asked, did the mine company ge [...]

    THE CLAMOR FOR SOCIAL EQUITY Germinal refers to the season of spring, the time of renewal when the seed of life starts to sprout again from the ground, germinating hope after the long dormancy of winter mile Zola symbolically refers to this spring of hope as the wretched lives of the coal miners, amidst the sour inflictions of deprivation, leading to their depraved lives, slowly awaken from their long years of passive obedience, allowing them to see a picture of a better life as it hustles the w [...]

    Rating this book is a difficult thing.It took me a while to read it, I knew that before starting it, Zola is a big deal Long descriptions, unnecessary parts, complicated way to say what he wants But in the end, the meaning and the message is always deep and strong Rating 3,5As I said I was about to give up on this book every two seconds, I was like hold on, it is not that bad Let s be serious for a minute I did liked this book I already studied this part of history in school, but Zola bring us t [...]

    4 and 1 2 starsI m presently in an online group discussing this book, which is probably the reason I don t feel like writing a proper review This is my second Zola and I admired it as much as I did my first, L assommoir, even if I subjectively liked the latter a bit The structure of the novel and the way Zola handed the complexity of the issues through the eyes of his main character, Etienne son of the main character in L assommoir , is impressive.The group scenes are tense, thrilling, feverish [...]

    In 1871, Zola began a 20 volume series called Les Rougon Macquart of which Germinal is the 13th, written in 1885 The series chronicles the life of one extended family in a tale that explores the class structure in France during the Second Empire While he surveys the society from top to bottom, he is also weaves in the influence of environment and heredity on position and behavior Its an incredible series, and as each novel is its own character study, between the first and the last books, you can [...]

    Not what I expected at all This is not a twee tale of love or romance, nor is it a keep you on the edge of your seat murder mystery It is story of poverty and the working class eeking out an existence in a 19th century mining community in France A tale of survival in its most raw and basic form showing how Maslow s essential human needs of food, shelter and reproduction can bring people together to form a solidarity but also how quickly it can be destroyed.This my first Emile Zola book and I wil [...]
