Overview

JOIE DE LE VIE!

Zola portrays the triumph of rectitude, the triumph which follows faith in the powers of life, and observance of the law of universal labor. Fruitfulness contains charming pictures of homely married life, delightful glimpses of childhood and youth: the first smile, the first step, the first word, followed by the playfulness and the flirtations of boyhood, and the happiness which waits on the espousals of those who truly love. And the punishment of the guilty is awful.

-- Earnest A. Vizetelly, 1900

Fruitfulness was to be the first of a series of four novel (a series, alas, never completed) illustrating this immortal author's philosophy on the building blocks of a great civilization.

Foremost, however, Fruitfulness is a vivid portrait of a time and place -- and an unstoppable dream.

About the Author

Émile Édouard Charles Antoine Zola (1840 - 1902) was a French novelist, playwright, journalist, the best-known practitioner of the literary school of naturalism and an important contributor to the development of theatrical naturalism. He was a major figure in the political liberalization of France and in the exoneration of the falsely accused and convicted army officer Alfred Dreyfus, which is encapsulated in the renowned newspaper headline J'accuse. Zola was nominated for the first and second Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901 and 1902.

Ernest Alfred Vizetelly (1853-1922) was an English journalist and author. He was a son of the English publisher Henry Vizetelly, by his first marriage to Ellen Elizabeth Pollard. He was known as a war correspondent. Ernest republished some of his father's works by Émile Zola but modified them. Ernest was present with his father at the Siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War and wrote a memoir of his experiences My Days of Adventure; the Fall of France, 1870-71 which also contains an autobiographical introduction.

Fruitfulness is the first of a series of four works in which Emile Zola proposes to embody what he considers to be the four cardinal principles of human life... 'Fruitfulness,' says Zola, 'creates the home. Thence springs the city. From the idea of citizenship comes that of the fatherland and love of country, in minds fed by science, leads to the conception of a wider and vaster fatherland, comprising all the peoples of the earth. Of these three stages in the progress of mankind, the fourth still remains to be attained. I have thought then of writing, as it were, a poem in four volumes, in four chants, in which I shall endeavor to sum up the philosophy of all my work. The first of these volumes is Fruitfulness the second will be called Work the third, Truth the last, Justice. In Fruitfulness the hero's name is Matthew. In the next work it will be Luke in Truth: Mark and in Justice: John. The children of my brain will, like the four Evangelists preaching the gospel, diffuse the religion of future society, which will be founded on Fruitfulness, Work, Truth, and Justice.'... --- Zola portrays the triumph of rectitude, the triumph which follows faith in the powers of life, and observance of the law of universal labor. Fruitfulness contains charming pictures of homely married life, delightful glimpses of childhood and youth: the first smile, the first step, the first word, followed by the playfulness and the flirtations of boyhood, and the happiness which waits on the espousals of those who truly love. And the punishment of the guilty is awful, and the triumph of the righteous is the greatest that can be conceived. (Ernest A. Vizetelly) --- Emile Zola (1840 - 1902) died before he could finish the fourth and last of this series called Quatre Évangiles. Fruitfulness, Work and Truth were published between 1899 and 1903.
