Overview

'Therese Raquin' is a clinically observed, sinister tale of adultery and murder among the lower orders in nineteenth-century Paris. Zola's dispassionate dissection of the motivations of his characters, mere 'human beasts' who kill in order to satisfy their lust, is much more than an atmospheric Second Empire period-piece. 'Therese Raquin' stands as a key early manifesto of the French Naturalist movement, of which Zola was the founding father. Even today, this novel has lost none of its power to shock.

Written in 1867 Therese Raquin explores the world of adultery, obsession, and murder. Its protaganist is Therese, a lonely and passive young woman unhappily wed to her much older invalid cousin Camille. Her life is greatly altered when a stranger from Camille's past comes into her life: Laurent. Soon, Laurent and Therese start a passionate and obsessive relationship with each other resulting in murder, paranoia, and rage. The dark atmosphere and chilling characters described by Zola help to make a disturbing and exciting novel.

Name - Embre Theodora Chrysanth<_>&#283<_>. <br> Nicknames[s] - Embre, Em, Bree, Theo, Dora the Explora, Just-Dora, Chrys, etc. Pretty much anything you can conjure up works for her. <br> Age - Aye . . . . Around 17-ish. <br> Species - Human. <br> Appearance <br> Em isn't someone people tend to notice. With curly, chocolatey hair, dimmed lapis lazuli eyes, a slim figure, and black clothing, she's the epitome of hidden. The only thing that draws attention to her is the little tiara randomly plopped on top of her curls, befit with polished chunks of sapphire and emerald. <br> Persona - Figger it out yerself. <br> History - Em came here from her curious wanderings. She travelled the world, or the parts of it she could reach. Yemen, Vietnam, Italy, Turkey, they all were explored thoroughly by herself. She loves adventure. <br> Other - She loves accents most of all. No one knows her normal voice, because she's always speaking in a Scottish acent or something. Whether it be Italian, Scottish, German, British, or something random, she is /never/ without an accent. <br> Dragon Bond - That's a no. <br> Friends - Noooope. <br> Crush - o-o Leave me alooooonnne. <br> Relationship Status - *le sigh* Absolutely nothing. If this is a scale from 0 to 10, 0 being liking no one in a romantic way, and 10 being ultimate romance with marriage and stuff, then she is -2. Seriously. <br> Favorite Song - Ehh . . . . . 'Angel With A Shotgun' by Nightcore or 'I'm Awesome' by Spose. <br> RPer - None other than Lin &#9788<_>!!
