Table of Contents
Emile Zola, born in 1840, was the founder of the Naturalist movement in French literature. His novel Therese Raquin caused a scandal on publication and was followed by his brilliant Rougon-Macquart cycle (1871-1893), a series of twenty novels focussed on one family. Zola died in mysterious circumstances in 1902, the victim of an accident or murder.
