mines to "J'accuse", portrait of a committed writer

-

Émile Zola, a respected writer, sacrificed his glory in the Dreyfus affair. As famous as his novels, his "I accuse" marked the story. In his work, the author draws inspiration from his modest childhood spent in Aix-en-Provence (Bouches-du-Rhône). His talent will offer him the bourgeois life he dreams of. Social writer, Zola invents naturalism through his saga of Rougon-Macquart, in which he denounces the travails of his time. To write Germinal, he goes down in the mine alongside the "black mouths". A novel so strong, that the cinema will seize it.

A mysterious death

But the Dreyfus affair will lead the author engaged in an even more radical writing. Military, courts, Zola takes the pen and accuses. This letter then makes the front page of L'Aurore. Four years after his "J'accuse …!", The writer is found at home, asphyxiated by an obstructed chimney. Crime or accident? His death has always kept some mystery.
