Pyramid #105 LESSON IN LOVE Fine
Lesson In Love
By Emile Zola
In the deceptive quiet of a middle-class Parisian house, young Octave
Mouret lived among the carefully-educated wives and daughters of the
bourgeoisie, whose empty lives destined them for adultery as surely as
weaker women were meant for the streets!
Zola was described as "attacking marriage," which is a canard; what he
attacked, remorselessly, was the system of arranged, loveless marriage
in vogue in France at the time.
A man named Vizetelly translated many of Zola's works into English.
For this he was sent to prison for obscenity! What you are buying here
is a specially-edited version of the Vizetelly translation.
A 1953 Pyramid paperback! Clean, bright cover with spots of edge
wear. Spine is also clean, uncreased except for a partial horizontal
break just above center. Lower left corner is chipped. Pages are white,
binding tight and square.
