Pizer’s method of those novels is empiri­cal; he doesn't wrench every one novel awk­wardly until eventually it suits his framework of general­izations and rules; really, he methods the novels as fiction and arrives at his defini­tion via his shut interpreting of the works.

Pizer posits the Nineties, the 1930s, and the past due Forties because the a long time while naturalism flourished in the United States. He concentrates on literary feedback, no longer at the philosophy of naturalism, to teach that literary feedback could make a contribution to a very muddled region of literary history—a natural­ism that's alive and altering, hence resisting the neat definitions reserved for the dead.
