Main Description
Re-reading Zola and Worldwide Naturalism continues the discussion of emile Zola and French naturalism with examinations of unexplored areas of the founding father's project and legacy. In addition to offering essays on Zola's lesser known naturalist contemporaries, the volume extends the investigation of the naturalist literary current to include areas of Europe outside France, as well as the Americas and Asia, tracking its persistence in various forms through the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. The authors pay particular attention to the ways naturalism was conceived and then received, including in other channels, undergoing transformations in new social conditions and creating other versions of the basic precepts.This work features multidisciplinary and comparative approaches to the study of naturalism, paying tribute to Anna Gural-Migdal a Professor of French Literature and Film Studies at the University of Alberta, in Canada, who specializes in the visual aspect of Zola's Rougon Macquart novels and the transfer of these strategies to naturalist film. She has been a leader in the field of Zola and naturalism in her role as president of the AIZEN for almost fifteen of its twenty years of existence.
