Naturalism is a writing style in which the author seeks to replicate reality. But, it is different than realism. It is the opposite of Romanticism in which objects can be highly symbolic. Naturalism seeks to define items and objects in a scientific way. These works can often include poverty, death, disease, racism, prejudice, and other dark harshnesses of life.
