Character description

Émile François Zola (2 April 1840–29 September 1902) was an influential French writer. Zola risked his career and even his life on 13 January 1898, when his open letter "J'accuse" on the Dreyfus Affair was published on the front page of the Paris daily L'Aurore. A few years later, at his home in Paris, a blocked chimney delivered deadly carbon monoxide; and in the morning servants found Emile dead and his wife Alexandrine, who later recovered, unconscious. Zola was accorded a state funeral and is interred in the Pantheon.
