If, as Shakespeare wrote in Hamlet, the purpose of art is to hold up a mirror to nature, Emile Zola must be counted as a great artist. Certainly he was a courageous pioneer who constantly pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable in literature. "Nana," published in 1880, was considered especially shocking in its graphic description of the rise and fall of a high-class prostitute, whose trajectory at every step corresponds to the fortunes of Napoleon III's Second Empire, which Zola (like virtually all educated Frenchmen) detested. Nana's grisly death from smallpox is timed to coincide with the beginning of the disastrous Franco-Prussian War in 1871, which led to the collapse of the Second Empire and national humiliation for France.
By today's standards, Zola's treatment of his subject seems judgmental and moralistic, but for a book published in 1880 it is surprisingly steamy and even includes a lesbian love interest. . Although Zola saw himself as an objective scientist dissecting diseases of the body politic (keep in mind this was the period of Louis Pasteur and Claude Bernard), "Nana" is anything but a detached clinical document and has strong mythical and archetypal overtones that give it its enduring power. The title character indeed is not so much an individual as an embodiment of the corruption and moral rot Zola saw in the Paris of Napoleon III. Nana is nothing like the repentant Magdalenes and prostitutes with hearts of gold one encounters in the pages of Dickens, Dostoevsky, and Hugo: she is a heartless, predatory gold digger who uses men and then discards them, consuming their fortunes and ruining their health without any thought for the consequences. All the women with one or two exceptions are call girls or streetwalkers. Not that the men are any better: they're either pimps or degenerates who deserve their ruin. Almost the only sympathetic character is Madame Hugon, the mother of two of Nana's victims. The only character to come out ahead is Nana's lady's maid Zoe, who uses her earnings from the service of Nana and others like her to open her own brothel. "Nana" paints a powerful but despairing portrait of a society rotting from disease within and is a book the reader will not soon forget.
One of my favorite books of all TIME I read when a young woman and then twice later. I really recommend. Its french naturalism meaning its written as if HOW THINGS REALLY WERE in 18th cent Paris, rather then how THINGS SHOULD BE. You get to see how everyone dressed ate, normal conversation, immoral behavior, all out in the open. Nana was an actress who ruined many rich men. And her little sycophants and madames and bankers and wealthy men. One scene my favorite is the dinner. It takes up a whole chapter. She invites all her suitors and all her friends and they eat and drink all night. Its roughly after a real courtesan too. She is a fallen angel and dies a diseased death.
Emile Zola is one of my favorite authors. He writes about human life at its best and worst.

Nana is a study in stupidity, greed, evil, and the total control that one person could possibly have over another. How could this end well? Nana is a timeless classic. Christine Schulz
Neither as great overall as "L'Assomoir" nor as despairing as "Therese Raquin," this, Zola's most scandalous novel still has the power of accumulated detail to show the tawdriness of Paris society in the mid-19th century.
Zola desarrolla muy brevemente y muy bien un gran número de personajes.
An important novel, one of the best of Emile Zola.
Really great!!
Una de las mejores novelas de Emile Zola, extraordinario poder descriptivo.
I thought I lost this book once and had a small panic attack (kidding.) But really, this is my favorite Zola novel (I've read his short novellas and Therese Raquin.) Reading the introduction in the beginning gave me such an appreciation for the book while reading it that I hardly go a week without thinking about scenes in it, ones that Zola has forever burned into my memory. Truly a worthwile read.
