Product Description

Germinal portrays with stunning realism the struggle of the poor miners in France, the hardships and cruelties of poverty, and brutality towards animals and mankind. Ex-machinist Etienne Laniter lands in one of the mines when he is unable to find other work during the industrial crisis. He brings the struggles of the miners to a head with a combination of the situation, his social activism, and higher education, which will either raise the miners to a new, uplifted level, or will ultimately break them.

Publisher's Description

The thirteenth novel in Émile 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.

Etienne Lantier, an unemployed railway worker, is a clever but uneducated young man with a dangerous temper. Forced to take a back-breaking job at Le Voreux mine when he cannot get other work, he discovers that his fellow miners are ill, hungry, and in debt, unable to feed and clothe their families. When conditions in the mining community deteriorate even further, Lantier finds himself leading a strike that could mean starvation or salvation for all.

Editorial Reviews

“[Germinal] made me realize that when books are considered ‘classics,’ most of the time they’re actually very readable and exciting.” —Daniel Radcliffe
