Zola was a master of descriptive writing.

Zola was a master of descriptive writing. In The Belly of Paris he creates scenes that the reader can see, feel, taste and, most impressively, smell the market, all of which are integral to the story.

Zola's volume 3 in the Rougon Maquart series is at its core about the . One of the key scenes in the book is set in the butchery during an evening. Zola's political outspokenness brought him trouble even when the regime had already fallen.

Zola's volume 3 in the Rougon Maquart series is at its core about the disgusting bourgeoisie, who will love government as long as business is profitable. The food market "Les Halles" has recently been built, in the course of Haussmann's redesign of Paris, and it is a wonder of modern society. I like him for it, and for his encyclopedic forays into the real world. Naturalism' had its own poetic values.

Jonathan Culler's Introduction outlines this vision, stressing that Baudelaire is more than just the poet of the modern city.

mile Zola Translated by Brian Nelson. The focus of the novel on the great Paris food hall, Les Halles, and Zola's famous Impressionist descriptions of food make this a particularly compelling novel. This is the first English translation of Le Ventre de Paris for fifty years. Brian Nelson's lively translation captures the spirit of Zola's world in the same way as his popular translation of Au Bonheur des Dames (The Ladies' Paradise). The Introduction explores the use of food in the novel to represent social class, social attitudes, political conflicts and other aspect of the culture of the times, as well as the problematical relationship between art and modern life.

The Belly of Paris book. Part of Emile Zola's multigenerational Rougon-Macquart saga, The Belly of Paris is the story of Florent Quenu, a wrongly accused man who escapes imprisonment on Devil's Island. Returning to his native Paris, Florent finds a city he barely recognizes, with its working classes displaced to make way for broad boulevards and bourgeois flats.

Unjustly deported to Devil's Island following Louis-Napoleon's coup-d'état in December 1851, Florent Quenu escapes and returns to Paris. He finds the city changed beyond recognition. The old Marché des Innocents has been knocked down as part of Haussmann's grand program of urban reconstruction, replaced by Les Halles, the spectacular new food markets. Disgusted by a bourgeois society whose devotion to food is inseparable from its devotion to the Government, Florent attempts an insurrection. Les Halles, apocalyptic and destructive, play an active role in Zola's picture of a world in which food and the injustice of society are inextricably linked. This is the first English translation in fifty years of Le Ventre de Paris (The Belly of Paris). The third in Zola's great cycle, Les Rougon-Macquart, it is as enthralling as Germinal, Thérèse Raquin, and the other novels in the series. Its focus on the great Paris food hall, Les Halles--combined with Zola's famous impressionist descriptions of food--make this a particularly memorable novel. Brian Nelson's lively translation captures the spirit of Zola's world and his Introduction illuminates the use of food in the novel to represent social class, social attitudes, political conflicts, and other aspect of the culture of the time. The bibliography and notes ensure that this is the most critically up-to-date edition of the novel in print.About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe.

Reviews about The Belly of Paris (Oxford World's Classics) (7):
Bukus
Florent Quenu “espoused an ideal of pure virtue and sought refuge in a world of absolute truth and justice” and “became a republican, entering the realm of republican ideals as girls with broken hearts enter a convent; and unable to find a republic where sufficient peace and kindness prevailed to soothe his troubled mind, he created one of his own.” His delusional, Christ-like (his brother being his only disciple) naiveté feeds and nurtures the petty intrigue of the families who inhabit the Parisian food market, Les Halles. The result is one of Zola’s more masterful stories filled with intricate subplots that cause the reader to have ever-changing allegiances and impressions about the characters.

Zola was a master of descriptive writing. In The Belly of Paris he creates scenes that the reader can see, feel, taste and, most impressively, smell the market, all of which are integral to the story. As in many of his stories, hypocritical, vicious gossip does much to drive the narrative. The highlight in this novel is a scene in which Zola intertwines the voices of the women at the market with the stench of the cheeses surrounding them as their chattering sets off the events that lead to the inevitable conclusion. As the “great explosion of smells“ combined, “The stench rose and spread, no longer a collection of individual smells, but a huge, sickening mixture. It seemed for a moment that it was the vile words of Madame Lecœur and Mademoiselle Saget that had produced this dreadful odour.”

Unlike many of the other novels I’ve read in the Rougon-Macquart cycle, the first part of the story is filled with sympathetic characters. Reading on, it was like a being in a constant, unbalanced state and compelled me to keep reading. The Belly of Paris would be a great starting point for anyone interested in learning about Zola’s writing.
Nikohn
Well worth the read. A perennial favorite of Anthiny Bourdain, Zola brings to life a place and time that bursts with the joy, farce, and horror of the late Nineteenth Century in the City of Lights.
Thetalas
Zola's brilliant metaphor on Paris and France. the narrative is stunning. One must follow up tis wonderful read with a walk through what was once Les Halles to commune with all the characters, spectacles and ghosts in this novel.

We read this book for our annual gastronomic December book club meeting. The abundance of detail was astounding to the point of exhaustion!
Yojin
This book was a fascinating read about the time of Paris 1850s made real by the fictionalized account of Florent Quenu who was unjustly deported, escapes, and returns to a Paris he barely recognizes. It has everything from the radical and the indolent along with those just trying to survive and how so much revolves around food.
Snowseeker
Wonderfully evocative of the underpinnings of Paris - the language is marvelous - you can taste the food and experience it all.
Coiriel
I found this on a Daily Meal website of the top 10 food books of all time. It is really wonderful and if you're into food, you'll enjoy it totally. Is also a good history of the times and area.
I had heard about this book for many years and am glad that I finally own it. Thanks so much!
