local color movement
Local Color Movement
  • The Local Color Movement grows out of American Realism. Twain’s use of dialect inspires a whole generation of writers to copy his use of “local color” to flavor their stories.
  • Writers like Twain, Kate Chopin, Flannery O’Conner, and Edith Wharton are sometimes referred to as Local Color writers.
local color defined
Local Color Defined
  • Local Color is writing that exploits the speech, dress, mannerisms, habits of thought, and topography peculiar to a certain region.
  • Locale Color Writing exists primarily for the portrayal of the people and life of a geographical setting.
  • The Local Color Movement begins in 1880 and comes out of the Realist Movement. This style of writing is marked by the attempt at accurate dialect, a tendency toward the use of eccentrics as characters, and the use of sentimentalized pathos or whimsical humor in plotting.
  • Local Color Writing lacks the basic seriousness of true Realism. It emphasizes verisimilitude of detail without being concerned with the larger ethical questions that tend to define a work as Realist Literature.
