Tracing the Roots of Naturalism

Origins Of Naturalism Naturalism Wendy Xu

Naturalism found its genesis in the scientific and philosophical advancements of the time, particularly the theories of Charles Darwin and the principles of scientific objectivity and determinism. Writers of the Naturalist movement embraced these concepts, seeking to portray human behavior as shaped by external forces such as heredity, environment, and social conditions.

Key Authors and their Contributions

Naturalism boasted an array of influential authors who crafted powerful works that exemplified the movement's tenets. Emile Zola, the French novelist, is widely regarded as the father of Naturalism. His meticulous and comprehensive works, such as "Germinal" and "La Terre," delved into the harsh realities of working-class life and sparked controversy for their unflinching examination of social injustice.

In America, Theodore Dreiser emerged as a prominent exponent of Naturalism. His novels, including "Sister Carrie" and "An American Tragedy," depicted the struggles and downfalls of ordinary individuals caught in the grips of an unforgiving society. Edith Wharton, another American writer of the period, explored the complexities of upper-class life and the subtle yet pervasive influence of social norms in works such as "The House of Mirth" and "Ethan Frome."
