I agree and I approve your choice. I do not oppose Zola and Shakespeare. What I meant is a text from Zola should be proposed by a Spaniard (or an Italian, or a German...) who feels, like you do, it is an important part of his/her culture, but not by a French. As an example, I would gladly propose Don Quijote de la Mancha, because it is  an important element of my European culture.
