This is a 33-page, visually stunning, power point presentation that discusses the main points of Realism and Naturalism in American Literature.
I have included a number of visuals, paintings and photos done in the "realistic" style. This powerpoint includes general information that discusses:
The literature movements of Realism and Naturalism as a whole.
Principles Of Realism
Characteristics Of Realistic Writing
Regional Areas of Realistic Writing
Naturalism - Key Principles and Themes
Teachers can add in information about specific novels, plays or short stories from these particular movements in Literature to the power point. I have recently updated it!
This powerpoint can also be printed off and put up on a bulletin board display.
