The 1966 edition of this book has be­come a standard work. In this new, re­vised edition, Pizer has dropped three chapters and has refined and extended the work by adding six: ?American Liter­ary Naturalism: An Approach Through Form,” ?American Literary Naturalism: The Example of Dreiser,” ?The Prob­lem of Philosophy in the Naturalistic Novel,” ?Hamlin Garland’s 1891 Main-Travelled Roads: Local Color as Art,” ?Jack London: The Problem of Form,” and ?Dreiser’s ?Nigger Jeff’: The Devel­opment of an Aesthetic.”

 

The book contains definitions of real­ism and naturalism based on representa­tive novels of the period ranging from Howells’ Rise of Silas Lapham to Crane’s Red Badge of Courage; analyses of the literary criticism of the age, stressing that of Howells, Garland, and Norris; and close readings of specific works by major figures of the period.
