Historical context of romanticism
Historical Context of Romanticism years following the war (post-war years).

  • Civil war brought a demand for a “true” type of literature that did not idealize people or places (that did not seek to make them sound perfect).

  • The Civil War and the years after the war make up the historical context.


The harsh reality of frontier life, coupled with artists’ reactions to the Civil War gave rise to Realism. (People were still moving westward.)Examples:Ambrose Bierce’s “Incident at Owl Creek Bridge” and Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage

Stephen Crane

Ambrose Bierce





Willa Cather (1:05)was a Realist noted for her portraying the loneliness and cultural isolation of life on the prairie. She wrote “A Wagner Matinee” in which she contrasted this isolation with the cultural richness (plays, concerts, exhibits, etc.) of an eastern city.


Edith wharton
Edith Wharton (1:05)

She wrote fiction about the Eastern high society into which she had been born. In The House of Mirth (1905), for example, she wrote about conflicts between the newly rich and the old aristocracy and about how social customs can prevent individuals from fulfilling themselves.


NATURALISM (1:05)An important literary offshoot of Realism was Naturalism. Naturalist writers also depicted real people in real situations, but they believed that forces larger than the individual – nature, fate, heredity – shaped individual destiny.

Jack London (Naturalism) (1:05)

  • He set much of his fiction in Alaska, where the environment was cruel and unforgiving. The theme of human endurance in the face of overwhelming natural forces pervades his fiction, including the short story “To Build a Fire” and the novel, The Call of the Wild.
