The Oxford Handbook of American Literary Naturalism

Edited by Keith Newlin

Oxford Handbooks

  • Essays go beyond discussing the familiar figures of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century naturalism to show the continuing presence of naturalism in more recent writing: essays cover more than the authors usually associated with the movement; in addition, to Dreiser, Crane, and Howells, the volume also considers the work of Dashiell Hammett, and Don DeLillo
  • Presents a far-reaching examination of naturalism, addressing its influence on film noir, the visual arts, and novels of the twentieth century
  • Explores not only traditional naturalist novels but also detective fiction, drama, and verse
