Hi! This is the Era Television Channel.
Naturalism is one of the greatest eras, because it has many wonderful authors and novels. Do you know what it takes to be naturalistic? .
First of all, it is a form of realism. It has to be real life and real people going through real things. .
To be naturalistic, it has to be influenced by the Darwinism theories and ideas, such as the survival of the fittest. An example of that is, "Spitz was untouched while steaming with blood panting hard. The fight was growing desperate. And all the while the silent and wolfish circle waited to finish off whichever dog went down."" Another theory it has to involve is that it believes human nature is determined by heredity and environment. For instance, "Possibly all the generations of his ancestry had been ignorant of cold, cold of one hundred and seventy degrees below freezing point."".
Another thing it takes to be naturalistic is that the literature has to be objective. "He had killed many the noblest game of all, and he had killed in the face of the law of club and fang. He sniffed the bodies curiously. They had died so easily,"" is a great example that shows that. The author didn't show any right or wrong moral to it, so it is objective.
Naturalism is believes that people like animals are subject to the laws of nature beyond their control. "The fear quickly became poignant as he realized that it was no longer a mere matter of freezing his toes or fingers, or a loss of his hands or feet, but it was a matter of life and death, with the chances against him,"" shows that really well.
Okay, now its time to talk about the Top Three Authors of the Day! Stephen Crane, who wrote The Red Badge of Courage, came in 3rd place. Coming in 2nd place is John Steinbeck, who wrote Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wrath. And last of all, Jack London is the number one naturalistic author of the day! He wrote The Call of the Wild, White Fang, and To Build a Fire.
