  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalism_(literature)Naturalism compares to Pessimism in a sense of Pessimistic people tend to be negative about things, they also tend to have bad attitudes toward life. A lot like naturalist writers who tend to write about the downside of life, and show darker sides of life.
  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naturalism_(literature)Emile Zola was programmatic which he thought that fiction self-consciously rejected the act of free will.Zola said that humans are “Blood and Nerves.”Naturalist writers such as Frank Norris, and Jack London tried to explain the acts of human behavior to natural science.For instance humans are just flesh. We are like animals but we can think. We just do what to do to protect yourself.
