Thérèse Raquin

ByÉmile Zola

Thérèse Raquin was first published in 1867, originally in serial format in L'Artiste and then in novel format later the same year. Zola also adapted the novel as a play, which was first performed in 1873. Thérèse Raquin tells the story of a young woman, unhappily married to her first cousin by an overbearing aunt who may seem to be well-intentioned but in many ways is deeply selfish. Therese's husband, Camille, is sickly and egocentric, and when the opportunity arises, Thérèse enters into a turbulent and sordidly passionate affair with one of Camille's friends, Laurent.
