      The thirteenth novel in Zola’s great Rougon-Macquart sequence, Germinal expresses outrage at the exploitation of the many by the few, but also shows humanity’s capacity for compassion and hope. Roger Pearson’s lively and modern new translation is accompanied by an introduction that examines the social and political background to Zola’s 4/5(5). The word "Germinal" was used for a period after the French revolution of to refer to the calendar month corresponding to about March. Another point that may be confusing in the translation is the reference to ordinary people by their inflected last name: for example, "Moque" for the old man, "Moquet" for his son, and "Moquette" for his.

      Directed by Claude Berri. With Renaud, Gérard Depardieu, Miou-Miou, Jean Carmet. In mid-nineteenth-century northern France, a coal mining town's workers are exploited by the mine's owner. One day, they decide to go on strike, and the authorities repress them/10(K). Germinal!" While it is a dramatic novel of working life and everyday relationships, GERMINA is also a complex novel of ideas, given fresh vigor and power in this new translation. It is also the thirteenth book in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, which celebrated its centenary in October with a new film version of GERMINA starring Gerard Depardieu.

    Germinal is a good book. Lirath Q. Pynnor-- Yes, but I want to expand the book entry to about eight or nine long paragraphs, which will mean the page as it currently stands will be one line about the month and then a much, much larger amount about the novel. Germinal is an important novel about work relationships and political movements. It was written at the end of the nineteenth century by Emile Zola, a prolific French writer of the era; it soon became a classic text everywhere around the world. The author spent nearly a year studying the world of the miners and the mechanics of social conflicts.
