Read full description of the books:



A Plassans, berceau provençal de sa famille, tandis que le Second Empire est tombé depuis deux ans, Pascal Rougon vit auprès de sa nièce Clotilde qu’il a élevée et qu’il adore. Ce sont moins ses patients qui l’occupent que ses recherches médicales, largement tournées vers l’hérédité, et l’histoire des Rougon-Macquart dont il a constitué l’arbre généalogique. Mais ces papiers, sa vieille mère voudrait les voir détruits pour qu’enfin disparaisse toute trace de la honteuse naissance de la famille, et Clotilde commence par prêter la main au complot.

Récit de la chute de l’Empire et de la guerre, La Débâcle marquait la première fin du cycle des Rougon-Macquart. En 1893, Le Docteur Pascal constitue la seconde, puisque ici se conclut l’histoire de la famille. Si ce dernier volume met en miroir ceux qui l’ont précédé, c’est aussi un roman scientifique où Zola exalte une médecine qui pourrait tout savoir afin de tout guérir, et un roman d’amour largement autobiographique que l’écrivain ne se résout pas à clore sur l’évocation de la mort : il choisit d’en appeler à la vie et d’ouvrir à l’avenir.

Read information about the author

Ebook Le Docteur Pascal read Online! Émile François Zola was an influential French novelist, the most important example of the literary school of naturalism, and a major figure in the political liberalization of France.

More than half of Zola's novels were part of a set of 20 books collectively known as Les Rougon-Macquart. Unlike Balzac who in the midst of his literary career resynthesized his work into La Comédie Humaine, Zola from the start at the age of 28 had thought of the complete layout of the series. Set in France's Second Empire, the series traces the "environmental" influences of violence, alcohol and prostitution which became more prevalent during the second wave of the Industrial Revolution. The series examines two branches of a family: the respectable (that is, legitimate) Rougons and the disreputable (illegitimate) Macquarts for five generations.

As he described his plans for the series, "I want to portray, at the outset of a century of liberty and truth, a family that cannot restrain itself in its rush to possess all the good things that progress is making available and is derailed by its own momentum, the fatal convulsions that accompany the birth of a new world."

Although Zola and Cézanne were friends from childhood, they broke in later life over Zola's fictionalized depiction of Cézanne and the Bohemian life of painters in his novel L'Œuvre (The Masterpiece, 1886).

From 1877 with the publication of l'Assommoir, Émile Zola became wealthy, he was better paid than Victor Hugo, for example. He became a figurehead among the literary bourgeoisie and organized cultural dinners with Guy de Maupassant, Joris-Karl Huysmans and other writers at his luxurious villa in Medan near Paris after 1880. Germinal in 1885, then the three 'cities', Lourdes in 1894, Rome in 1896 and Paris in 1897, established Zola as a successful author.

The self-proclaimed leader of French naturalism, Zola's works inspired operas such as those of Gustave Charpentier, notably Louise in the 1890s. His works, inspired by the concepts of heredity (Claude Bernard), social manichaeism and idealistic socialism, resonate with those of Nadar, Manet and subsequently Flaubert.
