"The dissertation explores the textual and iconographic motif of Paris in ruins, induced by the ’Bloody Week’ that ended the Commune of 1871, as a forgotten figure for the "capital of the nineteenth century...By analyzing the uncharacteristic presence of the Freudian uncanny in Zola’s novel Paris , I show how the Commune resurges in the 1890s, in the historical context of socialist anarchist terrorism, as a cultural repressed that carries a sense of doom for the capital at the turn of the century."
