To understand the brutality of her later life choices, Nana’s childhood must be considered: Meyahne if he must die tragically, someone will remember him by, or perpetuate his memory, like some descendants who narrate his story, or a diary that keeps him alive.

It’s also a vivid slice of life in late 19th century Paris. The family institution always seems to be the most solid, unshakeable bond that holds us together. This question contains spoilers… view spoiler [Why did she still refuse Goujet when the writing was on the wall?
The reader can only imagine the monstrous work environment and physical exhaustion she is ozla to, day after day, without losing hope. Completely unapologetic, Zola simply replied that he wrote about life as it is actually lived among the poor. Basically things are pretty bad to start with then they seem to get better for the family and then in the end it all falls apart.
She felt him like a load on her heart, always there across the passage, abandoned by God and man, feeding solely on himself, dwindling to the size of a child, withered and dry like an orange left to shrivel on a mantelpiece. Mistreated by the men who share her life, her goodness and endurance make her go through many trials and even lead her on the road to success but it is not counting on the “vices” to which man has so much ease to slip: These are the future anti- heroes of The Masterpiece and of Germinal.

Zola creates characters then let them do as they please. Agiscono per istinto di sopravvivenza e per loro non valgono le leggi del decoro o della morale: At one point, she is so desperate that she sees an affront in the embellishment of her quarters of Paris – a part of Haussman’s modernization plans – because it constitutes the complete opposite of her own wasting away between different obligations and emotional strains.
Clemence said how one day she had swallowed mdyhane bunches of cress for lunch. Zola takes you to some of the extremes of human twattishness and the lowest that fate can drag human life down to.
But look how easily that changes when some members of the family have a taste of success or dip below into poverty and addiction.
Envidia encubierta y falsedad. She doesn’t have much of a chance in the environment where she spends her life, however. Descriptions of excrement, sludge and stain always coincide with some moral degradation Gervaise faces, and eventually can no longer effectively scour.
