Naturalism and realism.4

  1. 1. It is defined as “the faithfulrepresentation of reality” or“verisimilitude”. Realism is often cited asa technique of writing that some authorsuse, but it also is a subject of matter thatincludes topics such as the middle-classlife and it opposes to the romanticism.
  2. 2. Realism had profound effects on fictionfrom places as far-flung as Russia andthe Americas. The novel, which hadbeen born out of the romance as amore or less fantastic narrative, settledinto a realistic mode which is stilldominant today.
