Sobre o livro
La Confession de Claude (Claude's Confession) was Emile Zola's first novel and his first attempt at what he would later call an "Experimental Novel". Published in Paris in 1865, it was quickly banned in the United States and Great Britain and was not translated into English for several decades. The Dead Woman's Wish The Dead Woman's Wish was first published in 1902. It tells the story of a young orphan Daniel, sponsored by Madame de Rionne who is on her death bed. The Mystery of Marseille A novel Les Mystres de Marseille appeared as a serialized story in 1867. "The Mysteries Marseille" recounts the love of Philippe Cayol, poor, untitled, republican, and of young Blanche de Cazalis, the niece of De Cazalis, a millionaire, politician and all-powerful in Marseille. Philippe's brother, Marius, devotes himself to protecting the two lovers - and the child Blanche gave birth to before entering a convent - from the anger of De Cazalis.
