Disclaimer Whereas I usually try to be objective with my ratings and reviews with this specific one I allowed my gut to lead meI hated this novel for it s sanctimonious preaching and its rank offensively aggressive misogynism or perhaps as has been remarked it is misanthropy plain and simplesince both men and women are ripped to shreds by the sharp lash of Zola s tongue pen The general milieu in the period of history that this novel is set in was very unkind to the poor so good luck I say to those who could manage to claw their way out of the gutter of poverty by whatever means possibleYet the impression I get from the way Zola describes things and the language he uses is that he seems to be condemning those who managed to do so He is supposed to be writing from the point of view of a paradigm of naturalism but take it from a pro Darwinst who believes to a large extent that humans are made up of reasonably eual parts of nature and nurture that Zola sounds pretty judgmental for someone who is trying to show that people are merely the results of their circumstancesOne of the things that caused me a high level of discomfort with this novel is that to me it felt I suppose that part of the impressions I got might be due to the translation it s often uite hard to gauge a translated work appropriately as if the special uality about Nana seemed to be presented as something animal some animal charisma something that resounded in her admirers in their most base natures the most animal part of their psychePerhaps that is what made me feel so uncomfortable is how readily Zola s characters responded to this animal aspect I think it was a clever device by Zola to add to the reader s disgust Perhaps his aim was to induce a feeling of shame in his contemporariesWhich brings me to the point that I don t think feminist readers will necessarily see Nana as symbolic of ALL women but rather symbolic of the sexual woman I think that on an instinctual level I saw her as symbolic of women who embrace their sexuality and in this case one of the women who uses her sexuality to gain power over men and destroy them No doubt there are such women of course there are I know some of them and are myself repelled by a few of them but Zola in this specific novel doesn t seem to try and counterbalance the typical stereotype of the scary nasty man eater with any positive female in juxtaposition with the nasty disgusting creature who uses her animal cunning her pheromones and her vagina to devour men whole To make matters worse Nana can t even be credited with really having used her brain or possessing anything of the sort she is simply a thoughtless base ball of cunning Her selfish exploitation of other humans seems to be of an instinctive thoughtless variety like the scorpion who stings simply because it is in the creature s natureI think I m probably a bit tired of the spectre of the vagina dentata myth and my reaction admittedly a visceral one can probably be explained in light of my exasperation with itI sometimes post images on my reviews A picture is worth a thousand words they say Well the following portrait doesn t uite contain 1000 words but it does give you a good picture of Nana She alone was left standing amid the accumulated riches of her mansion while a host of men lay stricken at her feet Like those monsters of ancient times whose fearful domains were covered with skeletons she rested her feet on human skulls and was surrounded by catastrophesThe fly that had come from the dungheap of the slums carrying the ferment of social decay had poisoned all these men simply by alighting on them It was fitting and just She had avenged the beggars and outcasts of her world And while as it were her sex rose in a halo of glory and blazed down on her prostrate victims like a rising sun shining down on a field of carnage she remained as unconscious of her actions as a splendid animal ignorant of the havoc she had wreaked and as good natured as everand would you call Zola classist perhaps Dang I should have done a Marxist review of this would have had a field day

I can imagine the outrage this novel probably one of those racy French novels kept out of the hands of proper Victorian ladies provoked at the time of publication with its explicit portrait of a actress cum prostitute Zola didn t write to titillate he himself was outraged as usual at a society that was bored wasteful and decadent caring only for its own pleasure thinking nothing of the future its own excesses causing its collapse I went back and forth wondering whether Zola was blaming Nana or the men for the destruction of marriages careers and morals and my best guess is the blame is on both a perfect storm of receptiveness of these upper class men to the raw sexuality of one woman a woman who is her body only Though Zola is a naturalist Nana is not realistic with these superwoman powers of hers She is described as a literal man eater consumer but her partners are willing or as willing as slaves to their own sexual natures can be In the second half of the book the depiction of Nana reminded me of the stories told about Marie Antoinette by her enemies though Nana is without pedigree being the offspring of two alcoholics from the slums of Paris see L AssommoirThough complex than The Fat and the Thin this is my least favorite Zola so far I ve read three others mostly because I don t care for descriptions of luxury and opulence though I understand their purpose here The lives of the aristocratic men worshiping at the altar of this theatrical and concupiscent Venus were not only uninteresting to me but most of them blended together which I m sure was intentional but made the story repetitive Zola throws the reader into the scenes in his usual cinematic way his powers of observation are prodigious Some of the symbolism is obvious but the writing is wonderful and this translation is earthy Zola wrote this to parallel the French Empire but the reader today will see parallels with our own cult of sexual celebrity There s even a woman named Gaga

read Nana author Émile Zola Nana author Émile Zola review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB Émile Zola ↠ 3 free read Wenn die üppige blonde Nana auf der Bühne des Pariser Varietétheaters steht spürt jeder sie hat keinen Funken Talent Doch das macht nichts denn sie hat etwas anderes Nana das Kind aus der Gosse Tochter einer Wäscher. Here s why Nana should never be made into a movie Too late It already has been Four times Emile Zola has created a character so preposterous that casting agents in every corner of the globe would be hard pressed to locate an actress capable of making her believable Now I am not claiming that a woman like Nana could not exist because our world is certainly chock full of the preposterous but she would necessarily be so exceptional such an astounding confluence of so many unlikely variables that her successful imitators must surely be just as rare The part of Nana would reuire not only acting wherewithal but also a physical allure not a traditional beauty perhaps but a certain je ne sais uoi so commanding that men and women too of every station in life every class and every moral conviction consider themselves powerless to resist her What could such a woman possibly look like She couldn t be adeuately described I don t think because there would be something ineffable or even transcendent about her looks which would resist the banality of all the adjectives at our disposal Oh and did I mention she has to be trashy too There has to be the well trafficked cooter stench if only subliminal of a Kardashian about her In other words I m not seeing Katherine Heigl or Keira Knightley in the role One of the advantages of reading over film viewing is that I can imagine Nana any way that I want Zola provides a few descriptors along the way plump tall blonde large thighed but these are fairly neutral construction materials which can be fashioned into an architecture of my choosing My imagination safely tucked away in the cellars of my mind also isn t subject to the disapproval of others You think that s attractive The spectral Nana of my conjuring becomes the authoritative Nana Because she seduces me she seduces everyoneLet s talk about this Nana There s really no getting around it she s a cruel calculating ridiculous woman She allows men into her life only to suck every last sou out of them and to send them spitefully on their way She manipulates their affections drawing them in to a sexual complacency and then when she s taken everything she wants or gets bored she belittles and abuses them and finally throws them out A primary victim of her allure although there are many is Count Muffat an older distinguished and erstwhile religiously devout man who ruins himself completely in his futile attempts to possess Nana Nana cheats on him so often and so flagrantly that she seems like a sexual vending machine Anyone with the cash on hand is entitled to a bag of FunyunsBased on what I ve told you you probably won t be surprised that Nana has been attacked as a misogynistic work If you approach the book prepared to understand Nana as symbolic in whatever sense of all women and to infer that many of the male characters attitudes toward women are the author s own then you will likely find Nana a repellent novel written by a repellent man I on the other hand view Nana not as the Woman but merely a woman The misogyny of the male characters in the book meanwhile doesn t strike me as Zola s given what I know about him his avowed goal in his twenty volume Rougon Macuart series was to shine a scientific light on the central role of social environment and heredity in the psychological determination of the individual Nana s parents were poor alcoholic and abusive Should we wonder that Nana ends up being this woman in this particular society Is Zola blaming it on her gender I don t think so Of course many of Zola s views on heredity seem ridiculous today but no sane person doubts the tremendous effect of environment on the formation of an individual s character I don t think anybody male or female comes off very well in this novel We sometimes say that realists provide us with a warts and all depiction of reality but I think Zola prefers to dwell on the warts in Nana and he certainly doesn t restrict himself to the title character s Zola on the one hand clearly had a somewhat pessimistic view of the ills of society but I think and this is pure speculation here he found some kind of hope in being able to illuminate these ills so that they could be remedied or guarded against Lastly a few practical notes I read the creaky dusty and very British public domain translation published by Barnes and Noble It was written in 1922 I believe I m taking it as a article of faith that there is a better translation out there maybe than one If you decide to read Nana seek out opinions on translations because I m guessing this one isn t the best bet Also this novel takes a while to really sink into At the beginning it s a little confusing particularly at Countess Sabine s party because there are a LOT of characters But if you soldier on I think you ll find yourself starting to like it at about the one hundred page mark
