L’Assommoir Body Paragraphs

Zola uses certain words and phrases to place Gervaise in a difficult situation to make us sympathize for Gervaise. Firstly, the location that Zola places Gervaise is bad enough, she lives in a poorly furnished, poor quality hotel room. The first sentence of the sixth paragraph informs us that it was the best room in the hotel. This includes the fact that Lantier is missing, it was the first time that he had slept out, as explained in the third paragraph. Now that she’s in tears probably because that she’s worried about Lantiers whereabouts, although not explained in that chapter. [...]

Conclusion Of L’Assommoir By: Emile Zola

The way Emile Zola attempts to create sympathy for Gervaise does not work. Gervaise is sad by her husband (Lantier) for not showing up within a reasonable amount of time. Why she is sad is the question to ask. Gervaise is sobbing and throwing herself across the bed because Lantier has not shown up? its 2 in the morning. Gervaise is too worried over something that might be a car accident, possibly lost in the streets or even stuck in an ally. Gervaise had fancied to see Lantier walking down the street towards the Grand-Balcon, but does not know for [...]

L’assomoir body paragraphs

Emile Zola makes us sympathise with Gervaise because she faces many problems she shouldn’t be, as she appears as a nice loyal and caring woman. Her husband is off, enjoying the night dancing with a woman he is possibly seeing romantically while Gervaise waits in the hotel room for him. Also, the fact that they live in a hotel, that the room isn’t very furnished and that there are pawn tickets on the table show that they are poor. “The room was the best in the hotel” (Line 29) but the room does not seem very fancy, except the view [...]

Conclusion for Chapter 1 of “L’Assommoir” by Emile Zola

I am very impressed by the literally techniques Zola uses, and they actually work. But they do not work for me. I feel very little emotion towards Gervaise, but I do feel something. I feel most in her actions/behavior. This is because it is when you notice the most that she has been affected. When I sympathize with Gervaise it is no tremendous affection, not even a mild affection, just like, ‘Tough luck for you Gervaise.’ But still this sympathy works, not as much for me but it works. I am still very impressed by the way Zola makes at [...]

L’Assommoir Personal Response

Zola uses a lot of vocabulary. Zola also uses language and ideas to. He creates sympathy by doing this, however he also creates a lot of sadness and a fair amount of grief. I don’t particularly enjoy L’Assommoir, there is really nothing happening and this bores me. The way Zola writes is very depressing. I feel put down and devastated, when I read the L’Assommoir. His writing may be more effective if it is not studied to closely. After I have studied these techniques for some time, they are not as influential to me as they were before. It is [...]

L’Assommoir body paragraphs

Zola’s main way of creating sympathy for Gervaise is a kind of subtlety in the location and the casual mentioning of things therein. The pink pawn tickets (“In the middle of the mantel between two mismated tin candlesticks was a bundle of pawn tickets from the Mont-de-Piete.”) on the table indicating that they have been selling their property, but are mentioned with no emotion, simply stating that they are there, and once noticed add to the scene. Also the children, (“Meanwhile side by side on the same pillow the two children lay calmly sleeping… When their mother’s eyes fell on [...]

L’Assommoir Conclusion

Emile Zola writes L’Assommoir with the idea of sadness. Zola uses his language and ideas to increase sympathy for her. Zola could have use a larger variety of methods, for example he doesn’t utilize what others say about her, however the text is not lacking of sympathy. I feel that if he had added this it would have had a greater impact on the reader. Zola mainly uses three techniques, making sure that these are thorough and strong. Zola equivalently creates sympathy for Gervaise by describing her surroundings in such detail, it creates a sense of grief. It also suggests [...]

L’Assommoir Body Paragraphs

Emile Zola uses strong descriptions of Gervaise’s actions and behavior to make us sympathize with her. L’Assommoir portrays Gervaise as a wounded animal, making us feel like we need to give her attention and that we need to help her. Gervaise has patience for Lantier and puts up with Lantier even though he has an affair ‘Gervaise had waited and watched for Lantier until two in the morning’ this shows that she cannot handle the pain. Her body can’t handle the stress that she is being put through ‘she fell into a feverish doze with her cheeks wet with tears’ [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise?

Emile Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by making her cry numerous times. During Chapter 1 of “L’Assommoir” Gervaise gets her feelings damaged when Lantier hurts her without him being with her, a normal reaction for a person would cry when your hurt. Gervaise cries numerous times. In paragraph one, line three, ‘her cheeks wet with tears’, Gervaise cries on the bed from searching for Lantier until two in the morning. We sympathize with her because she is feeling depressed, the same way we sympathize with animals. During paragraph three, line one, ‘she burst into wild sobs’, again Gervaise goes [...]

L’ Assommoir: Emile Zola’s approach of creating sympathy

In this passage the author makes us sympathise with Gervaise by creating all the events that happen to her, without her deserving any of it. Firstly when she waits for her love and thinks she saw him with Adele, we already know that while she wastes her night waiting for him, he is probably enjoying himself with someone else, though he is actually supposed to be looking for work. She throws herself on the bed and cries herself to sleep, feeling betrayed. After she wakes up at 5am, she notices that Lantier is still not back and that now it [...]

Gervaise’s situation / circumstances / location in “L’Assommoir” by Emile Zola

What makes us sympathise with Gervaise even more than what happened to her is how miserable her life is. She is a poor mother of two children, living in a hotel (not even a home or apartment) in the middle of Paris, which is a terrible place to live in with so little money owing to the fact that everything there is so expensive. Her room, which is said to be the best one in the hotel, is a “miserable ‘furnished room’, whose furniture consisted of a chestnut bureau of which one drawer was absent, three straw chairs, and a [...]

How does Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise? Body Paragraph 3

Another way Zola makes us feel sympathy for Gervaise is through the inner thoughts and feelings he gives to his character. Whilst she watches and waits, Gervaise imagines seeing Lantier entering into ‘the Ballroom of the Grand Balcon’. This causes the reader to question Lantier’s whereabouts as well as his reasons. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, it is clear that Gervaise is not of wealth due to the ‘bundle of pawn tickets’ in her hotel room, yet Lantier can still afford to squander what little remains of his family’s money at the ‘Grand’ ballroom. Why would he choose [...]

How does Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise? Body Paragraph 2

Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by using her actions and behaviour. He describes how Gervaise ‘waited and watched for Lantier until two in the morning.’ This suggests that Gervaise is desperate for Lantier to come home, so much so, that she could barely leave the window she was stood next to in case she happened to catch a glimpse of him. As well as this, she is willing to stay up until the early hours of the morning in the hope that he will return, which emphasizes how alone she is. However, this quotation also eludes towards the extreme [...]

Analysis #2 of “L’Assommoir”

The actions an behavior of Gervaise described by Zola makes us sympathize with her. The fact that Gervaise is willing to stay up till two in the morning to wait for Lantier to return home is sad enough. This includes her sobbing because Lantier hasn’t return home and her not being able to anything makes us sympathize with her. She’s helpless, she weeps, and stare out the window, sit, and wait. She doesn’t exit the trashy hotel room to look for Lantier probably because she can’t leave the two children behind. Her daily routine is to sleep late as stated [...]

Technique that created sympathy-3 (body paragraph)

For the last, by giving Gervaise two young children to care for, Zola increases our sympathy for her. When I first read the half of the text, I just thought that she is just a woman who met a wrong mate for her entire life. But when I read the part which Zola described her family by the sentence “Meanwhile side by side on the same pillow the 2 children lay calmly sleeping”, it made me know that she had 2 little children whose ages are only 8 and 4. I think because their children are very young, they would [...]

March 1st Dear post

I’m reading Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. The story plot is a young damphir (half vampire half Human) girl, Rose that tries to save her best friend Lissa from Strigoi (vampires). The book is a series, and in this one, Book 6, Rose is accused of kiling the Moroi queen.

L’Assommoir – Inner thoughts and feelings

Gervaise’s inner thoughts and feeling are not delved into that deeply. The main thought is the imagining that Lantier is with another woman, “she fancied she saw him enter the ballroom of the Grand-Balcon” with her hand swinging as if it has just been dropped. Gervaise knows that Lantier is cheating on her and lying to her, while he says that he is going “looking for work”. Lantier could leave Gervaise and the children at any moment and she knows it, but she can not leave as no-one would take a poor woman with three children. The knowledge that she [...]

How does Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise? Body Paragraph 1

By using Gervaise’s poor circumstances, Zola makes the reader feel sympathy for the character. He places Gervaise in a ‘miserable “furnished room”’, which is ironic considering the meager amount of pieces that are actually present. There is a ‘chestnut bureau of which one drawer was absent’, ‘three straw chairs’, a ‘greasy table’ and a ‘broken handle pitcher’. These items are not completely whole and none of them are in the slightest bit clean. According to the narrator, however, the room in which the family is residing in is ‘the best in the hotel’ which puts these items into perspective. It [...]

L’Assommoir – What she says

                    What Gervaise says, or rather, doesn’t say, is another way that Zola creates sympathy. That Gervaise stifles her sobs (“she had a new paroxysm of sobs and pressed her handkerchief to her mouth to stifle them”) to make no noise, show that even when alone and crushed she still thought of her children, that she, when crying and tired could stop herself, not to wake her children and substitute them to her sadness. The noise she would have made, would not have been words, but she forced herself to not make it. The showing that she is still thinking of [...]

body paragraph-2

For the second, I think Zola tried to increase sympathy for the readers by depicting Adele, who slept out with Lantier, as a pretty brunette. This can be a bit strange, but I think it is related with the competition that happens through love. Usually, men are more affected by what they see than women. However, women are more sensitive and effective by the scent or the mood. Most of the woman knows this fact and they always try to be looked beautiful mostly to the man they like or they feel love to catch his attraction. But when they [...]

How does Emilie Zola make us sympathize Gervaise through her actions/behavior?

Zola wrote mostly about Gervaise’s feelings but managed to cover up how she thought she felt. It felt like Zola was writing on an edge, giving you the least details she possibly could and showing you who her character was through Gervaise’s actions. Zola started off with what was currently happening and then jumped back to what had been happening all week. Just from the first couple sentences, you could already feel sympathy building up as you read on. ‘Then chilled and shivering, she turned from the window and threw herself across the bed, where she fell into a feverish [...]

L’Assommoir – location, situation, and circumstances

Zola’s main way of creating sympathy for Gervaise is a kind of subtlety in the location and the casual mentioning of things therein. The pink pawn tickets (“In the middle of the mantel between two mismated tin candlesticks was a bundle of pawn tickets from the Mont-de-Piete.”) on the table indicating that they have been selling their property, but are mentioned with no emotion, it is simply stated that they are there, and once noticed add to the scene. Also the children, (“Meanwhile side by side on the same pillow the two children lay calmly sleeping… When their mother’s eyes [...]

L’Assommoir – Things that happen to Gervaise

Thing that happen to Gervaise

Making the reader sympathize with Gervaise by telling them what is happening to the character is one of Zola’s most used methods to create that effect. Zola makes the reader sympathize with Gervaise by telling us that she was abandoned and forced to raise up their [Gervaise's and Lantiers'] children on her own. This is first suggested in the passage, (third paragraph) Zola mentions Lantier not coming back home to sleep for the night. This hints at the reality, that Lantier is cheating on her, and has left her without notice. This would make anyone [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise by her inner thoughts and feelings?

Emile Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by her inner thoughts and feelings about Lantier leaving her. There is not much shown about Gervaise’s feelings but we can infer what she feels by her actions. In paragraph one, line one, ‘Gervaise had waited and had watched for Lantier until two in the morning.’ She waits for Lantier, she has a feeling that he is out with somebody else, but she is still not sure. She can’t seem to spot Lantier. Gervaise is feeling disconnected with his husband, since he has not arrived home yet, and is out with another woman. [...]

L’assomoir The Character’s Situation By: Emile Zola

Gravies situation is getting increasingly worse. while waiting for Lantier she realizes it’s already two in the morning and any of sight of him is out of the picture now. Gervaise stuck in situation, which she can’t control. ” for the last week when they came out of the Veau à Deaux, where they ate, he had sent her off to bed with the children and had not appeared until late into the night, always with a story that he had been looking for work”. In some circumstances some mom’s or wife’s might ignore the thought of him being out [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathise with Gervaise by her situation and her location?

Similarly, Zola creates sympathy for Gervaise by putting her in an unfurnished hotel room and making it obvious her and Lantier are struggling for money by mentioning they have very few possessions and have two children. By saying they don’t own many possessions and that they are living in an extremely cheap hotel with little in it gives the impression that they are making enough money to only just get by, but can’t afford to treat themselves, or their children, to anything luxurious. This triggers our instinct to help Gervaise and her children and give them a better lifestyle, a [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathise with Gervaise by what happens to her?

Emile Zola makes us feel sympathy for Gervaise by making her seem like the type of person that others think they can do anything with. When Lantier doesn’t come home and she stays up, crying, to wait for him it makes us think that she is used to being treated this way and this is just what her life is like. This makes us not only sympathize with her but also feel a certain amount of anger towards whoever treats her this way, in this case that person is Lantier. Also, we feel the urge to try and comfort her [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathise with Gervaise by her actions and behaviour?

Along with her current situation and location, Emile Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by making her seem loyal, loving and thoughtful. Zola shows this by the way Gervaise acts. By making Gervaise wait for Lantier until two o’clock in the morning he portrays her as a very loyal, trustworthy person and then, by making her give up and sob uncontrollably, he causes us to sympathize with Gervaise and feel hatred towards Lantier. Also, she stifles her sobs so as not to wake her children, proving she is a loving, thoughtful person especially to her children, who does not deserve [...]

Things that happens to Gervaise in the first chapter from “L’Assommoir”

     In this passage Gervaise appears to only be a victim of all the events that happen to her, without her deserving any of it. Firstly she waits for her love until 2am then goes to sleep after she thinks she saw him with Adele, so we already know that while she wastes her night waiting for him, he is probably enjoying himself with someone else, though he is actually supposed to be looking for work. She throws herself on the bed and cries herself to sleep, feeling betrayed. After she wakes up at 5am, she notices that Lantier is still [...]

‘The Ruby in the Smoke’ by Philip Pullman

The beginning of ‘The Ruby in the Smoke’ has a very strong description of Sally Lockhart:

‘She was a person of sixteen or so- alone, and uncommonly pretty. She was slender and pale, and dressed in mourning, with a black bonnet under which she tucked back a straying twist of blonde hair that the wind had teased loose. She had unusually dark brown eyes for one so fair. Her name was Sally Lockhart; and within fifteen minutes, she was going to kill a man.’

This description of the main character jumped out at me because she is described as [...]

‘The Ruby in the Smoke’ by Philip Pullman

I have recently started reading ‘The Ruby in the Smoke’ by Philip Pullman. My first impressions of this book were that it is very confusing and is also very dark and grimy; also there are many different stories happening at once so it is hard to follow at some points. Now, however, this book makes more sense to me and it is not as confusing, however it is still dark and grimy. As the book progressed I started to make connections between all the stories happening in the book and it all started to come together.

There is one [...]

March 1st DEAR Journal Entry: Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain

Huckleberry Finn is a different book from you modern day heroic endings. Instead huck is living down in the south with widow Douglas and her sisters miss Watson. The reason being with them is because Huck and Tom sawyer (Best Friend) recently came into a sum of money from their earlier adventures. At this point in the book Tom sawyer slipped Huck past slave Jim who is on duty to guard the house (Miss Watson’s slave) for Miss Watson. They then meet up with friends and discus within their gang! What and whom they are going to rob and kill. [...]

L’Assommoir Analysis Situation

Emile Zola makes Lantier seem selfish and inconsiderate, making us sympathize with the character Gervaise. By putting Gervaise in a miserable situation, it is heartbreaking to read about how Gervaise is forced to adapt to the lifestyle that her husband has forced her into. Gervaise is portrayed as pathetic in the way that ‘she ran to the window out of which she leaned as she had done half the night and inspected the sidewalks as far as she could see.’ I like this quotation because of how it can express Gervaise’s frustration without saying it up front. Instead Emile Zola [...]

L’Assommoir Analysis Inner thoughts and feelings

Gervaise’s inner thoughts and feelings are sadness. Emile Zola makes her suspicion and jealousy about her husband seem justified because he ‘had not appeared until late into the night and always with a story that he had been looking for work’ these stories and lies are strengthening her frustration and suspicions. Her jealousy is growing because of her insomnia ‘she fancied she saw him enter the ballroom of the Grand-Balcon’ she thinks that she sees him and that may not be an hallucination, if he is in fact cheating he could be going to the Grand-Balcon every night right in [...]

L’Assommoir Analysis Strong Description

Emile Zola uses strong descriptions of Gervaise’s actions and behavior to make us sympathize for her. From L’Assommoir portrays Gervaise as a wounded animal, making us feel like we need to give her attention and that we feel bad for her. Gervaise has a lot of patience and is putting up with a lot from her husband ‘Gervaise had waited and watched for Lantier until two in the morning’ this shows that she cannot handle the pain. Her body can’t handle the stress that she is being put through ‘she fell into a feverish doze with her cheeks wet with [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise by her locations?

Emile Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by making her be at an unhappy place. When Gervaise is at a poor location it makes her be unfortunate. We sympathize for people that are poor. For example, when you pass through beggars while walking on the street we feel sorry for them, because they have to suffer to live on horrible conditions and what they do not have. At paragraph three, first line, ‘When Gervaise awoke about five o’clock, stiff and sore’, when anybody sleeps on a rough surface they feel stiff and sore after waking up. The bed where Gervaise [...]

How does Emile Zola make us sympathize with Gervaise by actions/behavior ?

Emile Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise by making her cry numerous times. During Chapter 1 of “L’Assommoir” Gervaise gets her feelings damaged when Lantier hurts her without him being with her, a normal reaction for a person would cry when your hurt. Gervaise cries numerous times. In paragraph one, line three, ‘her cheeks wet with tears’, Gervaise cries on the bed from searching for Lantier until two in the morning. We sympathize with her because she is feeling depressed, the same way we sympathize with dogs when they are sad. During paragraph three, line one, ‘she burst into wild [...]

3 literary techniques and body paragraphs-1

For the first, I think by telling us that the By giving the information that Lantier’s sleep out was the first time after Lantier and Gervaise got married, Zola increases the sympathy for her. I can imagine how miserable and sad Gervaise was when she saw this. Although they have lived in an extreme poverty they might have enjoyed their life with their two children. Think about that you had a boyfriend or girlfriend that you have really loved. While you were thinking about marriage, and how happy your future will be with him or her, you just see you [...]

Dear Journal Entry: Thieves Like Us

Thieves like us is an adventure book written by Stephen Cole. People who might enjoy it are people who generally like adventure books. Although this book is an adventure book, (not to mention all being in an elite group of outlaws) it has a twist, the main characters all have a unique gift, for example a fourteen year old who can pick any lock. This makes this book more of an X-Men story. People who will not enjoy it (such as myself) are people who dislike the exploration of historical sites, finding ancient relics and people who dislike snakes. As [...]

Dear – Torn apart

I’m not sure what genre Torn Apart would fall under, as it doesn’t really seem to actually define itself, and while that can be done very well, it isn’t. I do not think that anyone would enjoy this book, and if it weren’t for the reading we have to do everyday, and that it was free for a day, I would not have gotten, or read it. I did not enjoy the book, the plot line is weak and unimaginative, the weak attempt at detective work is distorted by the lack of red herrings, and that the ‘mystery’ is not [...]

DEAR ‘One Hundred Years Of Solitude’ by Gabriel García Márquez

I have recently started reading ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude’ by Gabriel García Márquez. At first this book confused me as the stories of the characters are all entwined amongst each other and I found it hard to keep track of one character at a time, but as I have kept reading I have become immersed in the words and personalities of all the characters. The novel takes place in the fictional town of ‘Macondo’ that was founded by José Arcadio Buendía and his wife Úrsula Iguarán. Together, the couple had two sons: Aureliano and José Arcadio Buendía. The quotation [...]

March 1st Dear Post The Hunger Games ‘Mockingjay’

Katniss Everdeen has chosen to become the leader of the revolution in Panem. She is nervous for her first appearance as the ‘mockingjay’.

Someone calls for quiet, the cameras start rolling, and I hear “Action!” So I hold my bow over my head and yell with all the anger I can muster, “people of Panem, we fight, we dare, we end our hunger for justice!”

This is a very powerful quotation, because it shows Katniss’s growth through the book, and how she is now able to rise to the occasion and make a strong quotation that can unite Panem [...]

DEAR Journal: “The Prince and the Pauper” Mark Twain

I am currently in the middle of reading and disliking the novel “The Prince and the Pauper” by Mark Twain. Mark Twain is a very commonly known writer, he wrote “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” unfortunately he is now dead. This novel was published in the late 19th century. It is just the beginning of the novel and the narrator is explaining to the readers how on the same day two children are born, a prince and a pauper.

There was no talk in all of England but of the new baby, Edward [...]

When one of them dies on the field, the oldest among the two boys left feels pressured to join the army even though he only sees a disaster out of this war. The other boy, under-aged, tries to find a way to enter the army as [...]

Summary and Personal Response: L’Assommoir By: Emile Zola

Gervaise waits and watches Lantier until two in the morning. She threw herself across the bed. After two weeks of eating in the same place, he had sent her off to bed with the children and would not appear until late in the night. Always with a story for finding work. The next morning she woke up and burst out crying as Lantier had not return home. Lantier had not come back, he slept out for the first time. .Sobs were reforming and Gervaise had to hold a handkerchief by her nose to keep the children from waking up, she [...]

L’Assommoir – Actions/ Behavior

In this Passage Zola has made us sympathize for Gervaise, as she is Sobbing and worrying about Lantier’s where about. Gervaise is waiting for Lantier and the clock has already struck 2am in the morning, she is cold and shivering from siting by the window and looking for Lantier. Zola makes us sympathize with Gervaise as she is the only one to take care of the children. Though they are asleep, Gervaise also has to worry about Lantier meeting other women and not returning. Paragraph 1, “ Gervaise fell into a feverish doze with her cheeks wet with tears”. This [...]

Gervaise’s actions / behaviour in the first chapter of “L’Assommoir”

The author in “L’Assommoir” characterized Gervaise as a respectful but powerless person. In the first paragraph, she awaits Lantier’s return until 2am. When she realises that he might be cheating on her, all she does is throwing herself across the bed and silently cries: “Then chilled and shivering, she turned from the window and threw herself across the bed, where she fell into a feverish doze with her cheeks wet with tears” (line 2-3). She could have just gone all furious and tried to find him at the Grand Balcon where he remains with Adele and started a fight with [...]

L’Assommoir – Actions/ Behavior

In this passage Zola makes the reader sympathize with Gervaise by using descriptions of her actions and behavior. The evidence in the text is, “Gervaise had waited and watched for Lantier until two in the morning.” As the text later on says that he had sent her home (most probably after dinner) for the past week and did not come back until late at night. This makes us sympathize with her because most people can relate to this experience, being left waiting for someone with no or little clue where they are, when they will arrive and sometimes having the [...]

Analysis #1of “L’Assommoir”

Zola uses certain words and phrases to place Gervaise in a difficult situation to make us sympathize for Gervaise. Firstly, the location that Zola places Gervaise is bad enough, she lives in a poorly furnished, poor quality hotel room. The first sentence of the sixth paragraph informs us that it was the best room in the hotel. This includes the fact that Lantier is missing, it was the first time that he had slept out, as explained in the third paragraph. Now that she’s in tears probably because that she’s worried about Lantiers whereabouts, although not explained in that chapter. [...]

Re-written L’ Assommoir Summary

Gervaise watches and waits for Lantier to arrive home again, until at two o’clock in the morning she gives up hope that he will return for the night. She throws herself onto the bed in an attempt to sleep; yet sleep does not come easily. She cannot help but remember her imaginings of Lantier’s whereabouts from her place on the window ledge. She imagines him at the Grand-Balcon ballroom where she catches him dancing with another woman, Adele, who has seemingly taken her place at his arm. She later sees Lantier taking the woman to their favourite restaurant and the [...]
