"Solitaire comme Moïse" : Zola et l'impopularité


Taking as a starting point Son Excellence Eugène Rougon and Germinal, this study focuses on the use of the terms “popularity” and “impopularity,” which characterize the narrators − the political minister and the syndicalist, respectively − in these two novels. More broadly, this study addresses the poetics of the experimental novel that Zola has defined in three phases (observation/experimentation/reaction) and reads into the notion of impopularity the symptom of a failed integration, the result of the impossible adaptation of the fictional character to his new milieu. Impopularity also serves the purposes of the novelist as he reflects on the power he has over his readers, with the fear of seeing it reduced, a level of meaning to be found in these movements from popularity to impopularity which affect the fictitious wielders of words – Eugène and Étienne
