This novel is considered by scholars as one of Zola s lesser works, and you ll get no disagreement from me Too many fevered hallucinations, too many over the top Garden of Eden re imaginings The garden had no shame now it welcomed Albine and Serge, acting like good children who bother no one, as it had for so long welcomed the sun.Until, of course, Shame came to the Garden, and Albine and Serge became aware of their nakedness, and Serge Father Mouret , being the guy, slunk out of the garden like a snake.Zola, he of the Realist school, painstakingly spends dozens of pages dressing a priest stole, maniple, cordon, alb, amice, chasuble, biretta A hundred pages it takes for Zola to cure Mouret of an unexplained illness, requiring, apparently, the listing of every plant in a French garden I love you I love youthe sixteen year old Albine says with I m not kidding her pearly girlish voice. The twenty six year old priest tells her he loves her back More than anything he really saysI love you, he continued I love your cheeks they re as smooth as satin I love your mouth it smells like a rose I love your eyes, where I see me and my love I love even your eyelashes, even those tiny blue veins on your pale temples That s to say that I love you, I love you, Albine Even her eyelashes There are pages and pages of that So, how did one of the greatest novelists of all time handle the inexorable sexual act between these two crazy kids Albine surrendered Serge possessed her And the entire garden shared the couple s orgasm in one last cry of passion._____ _____ _____ _____ _____I didn t see myself in this novel And I m actually kind of new to Zola But Van Gogh was a fan And we know from his letters that he read this What must he have thought when Brother Archangias kept pulling the ear of Vincent, the altar boy with the unruly red hair And what thought must have spawned in the artist s unruly mind when he read how Jeanbernat, Albine s grandfather, stood behind Archangias in church As Father Mouret was finishing his prayers, he calmly pulled a knife from his pocket, opened it, and chopped off the friar s ear. This, the eleventh of the twenty Rougon Macquart novels I ve read since setting the goal of reading them all, is incredibly frustrating and the least satisfying of them yet Written a year afterThe

is incredibly frustrating and the least satisfying of them yet Written a year afterThe Conquest of Plassans , Zola addsto what he viewed as innate hypocrisies of organized religion or,specifically, the Catholic Church.Divided into three books the first two bring to mind the clich beating a dead horse by how they endlessly drone on with descriptive paragraphs the novel a revolves around two central characters, Serge Mouret, of the Rougon Macquart clan, and Albine The first book focuses on Serge, a young, idealistic priest overcome with devout faith, very much the antithesis of the conniving, corrupt Abb Faujas in The Conquest of Plassans Zola explores every metaphorical crevice of Serge s ecstasy of belief which ultimately leads him to a complete psychic, emotional and physical breakdown that culminates in a complete amnesia In the second book, Serge is slowly nursed back to health by Albine, a peasant girl who lives in an isolated, natural estate, the Paradou, or a paradise removed from the town and isolated by a wall There they lead an Adam and Eve like existence Albine helps Serge to recover from his physical existence which leads to a predictable, naive relationship that is consummated in the wilds of the Paradou But that act begins to restore Serge s memory of his priestly life The culmination of their love is, in essence, the beginning of the end of their primal, natural love This second book has the feeling of being filled with excerpts from Zola s practice notebook of expressive writing His overwhelming use of metaphors had me hating the word like by the beginning of the climatic third book One can flip to almost any page to find a seemingly never ending paragraph from which this is excerpted as an example They went down a wide flight of steps, whose toppled urns still blazed with the tall purple flames of irises Along the steps flowed a stream of wallflowers like a carpet of liquid gold On each side, thistles held up their spindly candelabra of green bronze, spiky and curved like the beaks of fantastic birds, products of some strange art, and elegant like Chinese incense burners Between the broken balustrades sedums let fall their blond tresses, their hair of river green, stained with patches of mildew.Zola was a master of descriptive writing, but in, for example,The Belly of ParisandThe Ladies Paradise , similar passages are integral to the flow of the plot, they emphasize the action Here they seem like endless writing exercises.The concluding book highlights the internal back and forth struggles Serge goes through to come to grips with his love for Albine and his devotion to his church The best parts show the duplicity of clerics, the disdain they have for women and anything that might compromise the supremacy of the Church These are Zola s sermons and the highlights of the novel From a contemporary viewpoint, I felt as though my own beliefs about the inconsistency and immorality of priestly celibacy were confirmed Perhaps that s another reason why Zola s writing always seems so fresh to me But even his resolution of the plot left me with a bitter taste and questioning whether it worth sticking with the story until the end.Ultimately, I can think of only two limited audiences that might be interested in this novel One would be aspiring completists of the Rougon Macquart novels like me But if they were to start with this one, I fear they might abandon the desire to readThe other are those who struggle with the differing approaches to theology the ones who seek a comparative approach about the essence of faith between naturalistic and organized, hierarchical points of view I started this review with the intention of giving it two stars, talked myself into giving in three in deference to those with the latter motivation, but finally had to go back to two In today s parlance, meh might be the best way to sum up my final verdict I have read other works by Zola Germinal and thoroughly enjoyed them But, not this one Why I endured 300 pages is beyond me.The book is divided into three sections and the first part is very good It is the psycho sexual religious struggle of a young priest, Mouret, in a small French village This part of the story has a good setting with interactive characters Zola takes direct aim through out at the repressive sexual codes of the Roman Catholic Church as well as their icons the Virgin I have read other works by Zola Germinal and thoroughly enjoyed them But, not this one Why I endured 300 pages is beyond me.The book is divided into three

characters Zola takes direct aim through out at the repressive sexual codes of the Roman Catholic Church as well as their icons the Virgin Mary, the Crucifix.The second part is an Adam and Eve fable where our young priest is placed in a vast garden to de contaminate and de program him from the cult of the Roman Catholic Church He is taught by a young woman to appreciate nature and its sensuality There are endless tedious passages of every flower, vine, trail, tree, branch, leaf and shrub in this Adam and Eve garden Over one hundred pages of floral descriptions granted a few are erotically titillating In this garden our couple Mouret and Albine are completely isolated from the village where Mouret was the priest.In the third part Mouret returns to the village to resume his priestly duties I couldn t understand why this happened.In this last part the characters mostly talk of themselves its mostly Mouret, his rapture and the evils of the flesh We get the idea after a few paragraphs It is strained with an endless flow of anti ecclesiastical themes Poor Albine, Mouret s muse never gets it and keeps pursuing the psychologically inhibited Mouret.Of interest is that this very anti Catholic novel was written in 1875 For this, Zola was neither murdered nor vilified As we know, there are some parts of the world today where people who speak out against religion are not so fortunate.This story is just too excessive and overstated It becomes strained and is way too long It could have been a good short story.an interesting plaque in front of a church in Carcasonne, France

this onerous task, for I am realizing that Zola was not quite the writer I thought he was While his technical and artistic skills are not in question, I am left completely nonplussed in terms of his message To date, I don t much care to read about his opinions, his views of the world Except for Nana, I ve avoided Zola my entire reading life, and now I m beginning to think that my better angels kept me away from him, with good purpose.This particular one brought me to a shrieking halt on page 101 Having survived all the repressed sexuality, the long, feverish religious ecstasies, the peep show quality of Zola s opinion of the priesthood, and Catholicism generally, I was utterly defeated when Serge fell asleep like a child, watched over by Albine, who blew gently on his face to cool him in his sleep While wondering about the state of a grown man s mind who can conjure such an image, let alone put it down with pen and paper for the whole world to read, I questioned my own compos mentis for reading it For some reason, this particular phrase brought the bile gorging and I just couldn t read another word.While the Rougon Macquart series may well be interpreted as Zola s opinion of corrupt, debased and debauched humanity, I m beginning to see itas the ramblings of a diseased mind all his own perversions brought forth in a veritable table d h te of an expos I think that Zola,than most, might have benefitted from a few months on Sigmund s chaise longue mile Zola at his best This book is my favorite in the series so far. This was the first Zola novel that I read around 17 years of age I was entranced This was the first novel that had sexual content that I was exposed to, and yet it was tame compared to 20th and 21st century reads Even so, this was not what I was interested in it was the emotional state and soul tearing torture that Abb Mouret was going through In hindsight I believe there would have been some exaggerated moments, surreal elements that may, or may not, be off putting The feminine intere This was the first Zola novel that I read around 17 years of age I was entranced This was the first novel that had sexual content that I was exposed to, and yet it was tame compared to 20th and 21st century reads Even so, this was not what I was interested in it was the emotional state and soul tearing torture that Abb Mouret was going through In hindsight I believe there would have been some exaggerated moments, surreal elements that may, or may not, be off putting The feminine interest is important in this story, and she is undoubtedly portrayed in a surreal, or perhaps idealistic, way In order to avoid spoiling, the ending was dramatic, and definitely surreal boy, I used this word three times , and intellectually satisfying.As a teenager, developing in a spiritual and literary way, this was seminal for me It made me grow as a reader In hindsight, I wonder whether it was as great as I thought it was.I just ordered it to prove the point In the meantime, for nostalgia s sake, I rate it 5.btw, when I read the novel, it was called The Sinful Priest fascinated to know why In English translation, Patrey Prentice Hall 1969.The weirdest Rougon Macquart novel I ve read so far In three parts one, Father Mouret is the parish priest of Artauds in the countryside where everyone is named Artaud and horrible two, the priest recovers from deep illness madness and recapitulates the Eden story from Genesis and falls in love three, Mouret returns to his decrepit church and deals with la faute, and hallucinates some .We get to live in Mouret s head most of the no In English translation, Patrey Prentice Hall 1969.The weirdest Rougon Macquart novel I ve read so far In three parts one, Father Mouret is the parish priest of Artauds in the countryside where everyone is named Artaud and horrible two, the priest recovers from deep illness madness and recapitulates the Eden story from Genesis and falls in love three, Mouret returns to his decrepit church and deals with la faute, and hallucinates some .We get to live in Mouret s head most of the novel, which is pretty cool Some highlights include plants coming to life, barn animals eating each other, and grand religious visions of the Virgin Mary and of Mother Nature tearing down Mouret s church And there s a wonderful homage to Reservoir Dogs that I can t bring myself to spoil for y all.But definitely the least scientific and most hierophanic of the Rougon Macquart I ve dealt with thus far And I like that the priest is a person instead of a trope This one is quite different to the others I have read in the series Having been used to Zola s descriptive language of people and places, and his love of being direct, this novel isof a blink and you miss it the transgression that is I m not sure if it s because of the subject matter in a highly religious country or not, but it s not a highly critical novel of the Catholic faith,of a sympathetic look at the effect and consequences of Abbe Mourets decision to join the priesthood This one is quite different to the others I have read in the series Having been used to Zola s descriptive language of people and places, and his love of being direct, this novel isof a blink and you miss it the transgression that is I m not sure if it s because of the subject matter in a highly religious country or not, but it s not a highly critical novel of the Catholic faith,of a sympathetic look at the effect and consequences of Abbe Mourets decision to join the priesthood at a young age Zola talks about flowers for 300 pages 5 stars.
