Farrell’s Studs Lonigan, John Dos Passos’s u.s., John Stein­beck’s The Grapes of Wrath, Norman Mailer’s The bare and the useless, William Styron’s Lie Down in Darkness, and Saul Bellow’s The Adven­tures of Augie March. Pizer’s method of those novels is empiri­cal; he doesn't wrench every one novel awk­wardly until eventually it matches his framework of general­izations and ideas; quite, he ways the novels as fiction and arrives at his defini­tion via his shut analyzing of the works. Establishing the history of natural­ism, Pizer explains that it comes less than assault since it is “sordid and sensational in sub­ject matter,” it demanding situations “man’s religion in his innate sense of right and wrong and hence his accountability for his actions,” and it's so packed with “social documentation” that it is usually brushed off as little greater than a photographic list of a lifestyles or an period; hence the “aesthetic valid­ity of the naturalistic novel has usually been questioned.” Pizer posits the Eighteen Nineties, the Thirties, and the past due Nineteen Forties because the many years while naturalism flourished in the USA. He concentrates on literary feedback, now not at the philosophy of naturalism, to teach that literary feedback could make a contribution to a very muddled sector of literary history—a natural­ism that's alive and altering, hence resisting the neat definitions reserved for the lifeless.
