Charles Darwin ? Published The Origin of Species, ? Hypothesized that man is the product of evolution, ?

Plot—nothing much happens, revolves around the community and its rituals Themes in Local Color ? Dislike of change, nostalgia for an always-past Golden Age; ? Triumphant trickster or trickster tricked; ? Tall tale-tradition, conflicts described humorously, larger than life Characteristics of Realism ? Subject matter—ordinary people and events; ? Purpose—Verisimilitude, the truthful representation of life; ? Point of View—omniscient and objective ? Characters—middle class, psychological realism ? Plot de-emphasized ? Focus on everyday life ? Complex ethical choices often the subject ? Events are made to seem the inevitable result of characters’ choices Themes in Realism ?
