Émile Édouard Charles Antoine Zola was born in Paris, France. He was a French novelist, journalist, playwright, and political activist, the best-known practitioner of the literary school of naturalism, and an important contributor to the development of theatrical naturalism. He was a major figure in the political liberalization of France and in the exoneration of the falsely accused and convicted army officer Alfred Dreyfus, which is encapsulated in the renowned newspaper headline J'accuse. Zola was nominated for the first and second Nobel Prize in Literature in 1901 and 1902. He also wrote literary and art reviews for newspapers. In 1865 he published his first novel, Claude’s Confession. His novel Les Mystères de Marseille appeared as a serial in 1867. After his first major novel, Thérèse Raquin, he started the series called Les Rougon Macquart, about a family under the Second Empire.
