Q: В чем разница между without zest и listless ?
A: I’ve never heard “without zest” before. It isn’t commonly used, and I found it online only used in quotes.

Here is one of the only examples
I found:

“To teach without zest is a crime.”

I’m guessing that it means to put no interest into what you’re doing. To teach without zest = To teach without showing any proper care, to teach without making anything fun or interesting.

Listless: Having/showing no interest in anything. So, pretty similar in a way.

“She had no desire to go out anywhere and wandered from room to room like a shadow, idle and listless.”

“The heat had made everyone feel listless.”

“She looked up and saw everyone starting their work. She took out a piece of paper, feeling listless and bored, and began her own work.”

It’s also not used that much, but those are some examples I could find.
