The 13th of January of 1898 Émile Zola’s J’accuse was first published
In 1898 the Paris newspaper L’Aurore published an open letter by Émile Zola called J’accuse. It was a letter from Zola to Féliz Faure, President of the Republic, exposing the Dreyfus affair. J’accuse is one of the most celebrated works by Zola and there are many stories about the relationship between J’acusse and the death of the French writer in strange circumstances.
Zola accused the government of anti-Semitism and the unlawful jailing of Alfred Dreyfus. After a trial, Zola was prosecuted and found guilty of libel on 23 February of 1898. To avoid imprisonment, he went to England, returning home just a year later in 1899.
Anyway, Zola was a great writer author of prodigious novels. I recommend Nana, an excellent novel about a girl in Paris. Its descriptions are fabulous and its narration is one of the best I’ve ever read.
Have a great Sunday, dear Yareah friends.
