After realism came naturalism, a form of writing similar to realism, but with more pessimism.

In realism, it is definitely true, while in naturalism it seems less so, but the options are often less than ideal. Because choices do exist for characters, free will is still there, which indicates that naturalism is a derivative form of realism....   [tags: Character Analysis]
