The Oxford Handbook of American Literary Realism

Edited by Keith Newlin

Oxford Handbooks

  • First comprehensive discussion to extend realism to poetry, drama, film, photography, painting, and the graphic arts
  • Organizes contents by topic and theme, with many of the essays drawing upon archival sources, illustrations, and images
  • Goes beyond discussing the familiar figures of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century realism to show the continuing presence of realism in more recent writing and media
