The life of Emile Zola
Dieterle, William
This Oscar-winning minor classic portrays Zola’s early years, his financial struggles, his friendship with Cézanne and his clashes with authority over political criticism.
Its centrepiece is Zola’s involvement in the Dreyfus affair, which forced him into exile to England for about a year.
