Dead Men Tell No Tales and Other Stories

Author(s): Douglas (TRN) Emile; Parmée Zola

Short Stories

In contrast with the epic scope of the Rougon-Macquart novels, Zola's short stories are concerned with the everyday aspects of human existence and the interests of ordinary people. From the cruel irony of `Captain Burle' to the Rabelaisian exuberance of `Coqueville on the Spree', these stories display the broad range of Zola's imagination, using a variety of tones, from the quietly cynical to the compassionate, from the playful to the tragic. Contains: Dead Men Tell No Tales Coqueville on the Spree Captain Burle Shellfish for Monsieur Chabre
