By Émile Zola
1860'larda Fransa'nın kuzeyinde maden işçileri, çetin koşullar altında yaşam mücadelesi vermektedir. Çalıştıkları ocaklarda her an iç içe oldukları göçük ya da grizu patlaması tehlikesinin yanı sıra, açlık ve sefaletle boğuşup dururlar. Son çare olarak gördükleri grev onlar için kaçınılmazdır artık. Her şeyi göze almaya hazırdırlar, içlerinde filizlenen umut en büyük destekçileridir. Ne yazık ki direnişleri acımasızca bastırılır. Şimdi geride sadece ölüm, kan, gözyaşı ve yok olan hayaller kalmıştır. Germinal dünya edebiyat tarihinin en önemli eserlerinden biri. İnsanların çektiği büyük acıyı son derece gerçekçi ve evrensel olduğu kadar etkileyici bir dille de kaleme alan Zola, bu romanıyla adeta bir destan yaratmış. Her satırında okuru duygudan duyguya sürükleyen, kâh yüreğini burkan, kâh öfkelendiren, kâh umutlandıran, soluk soluğa okunacak bir eser.
