Transcript: By Emma Dempsey Maggie Levangie Cullen Kilduff Kendra Lansing The Origins of Realism Characteristics of Realism In the mid 19th century industrialization had changed the point of view on art and other cultural aspects. The romantic dreams seemed inevitable, and there was a direct shift to realism. Artists and writers wanted to show people exactly how life really was for the poor and working. Instead of focusing on their most desirable form of society, they were direct and depicted the filthiness and poverty of the working world. Modern World History Textbook thinkexist.com goodreads.com brainyquote.com askart.com artquotes.net tendreams.org The popular form of literature and visual art of the middle 19th century. The goal of this cultural movement was to show life exactly how is, and not what it should be. Going further into realism... Paintings showed the importance of the working class during the 1850's. The paintings depicted the crowded and dirty lives of these citizens. The novel's focused on describing the workers suffering, and science was deticated to observing and reporting facts. What is Realism? Ex: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness . . . it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair . . . in short, the period was so far like the present period . . . .” Art - Charles Dickens Understanding Realism What is the purpose of realism? “Civilization will not attain to its perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest.” ― Émile Zola Works Cited Realism Realistic Literature "Equality may perhaps be a right, but no power on earth can ever turn it into a fact." Honore de Balzac
Transcript: The literary movement following romanticism was termed realism or verisimilitude. This period in literature was characterized by novels with an accurate portrayal of middle-class life. Realism was caused by an interest in science, documentation of history, and rational philosophies. A depression in the US began in 1893 so the literature from this period was not ultimately happy or fairy-tale like. Novels from the realism period are very true, uncut depictions of average reality without fake endings or added twists. Characters in realism were plausible, not dramatic or satirical but believable humans.What was written is normally what truly happened. "The Awakening" Kate Chopin assists in identifying the literary movement of realism in "The Awakening" by focusing on characters rather than plot, keeping things accurate, and telling a realistic story in a gimmick-free, matter-of-fact manner.

"The Awakening", set in the late nineteenth century on Grand Isle, Louisiana and New Orleans is a story of feminism at the turn of the century and finding self empowerment as a woman. The setting greatly affects the theme of domesticity among women and French cultures in everyday life in "The Awakening". Chopin knew first-hand the dynamics of the South and used her knowledge to truly reflect the depictions of feminism and realistic actions of a woman during this time. Edna Pontellier's raw, natural struggle to find herself and reject societal norms is the main plot of "The Awakening". Because Chopin illustrates a character that is so much like herself she demonstrates perfectly the realism literary movement. The ending is not a gimmicky, happily-ever-after type of finale, which exemplifies even more the truth and reality of Chopin's work. Gabby Dolan Kate Chopin grew up in St. Louis Missouri surrounded by feminism, Catholicism, and death. Her sister died in infancy and her brothers passed away in their early twenties. The young's girl's father was killed in a train accident when she was just five and her mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother became her care-takers and role models is life. Admiring the strong women around her, Chopin began building morals of female empowerment and individuality in a male dominated world. The author attended the Sacred Heart Academy and began finding her strength in creative writing and artistic expression. More and more deaths were occurring in her life, and she started to doubt her Catholic background; this probably contributed to her seeing and relaying things for exactly how they were and no better.

Transcript: Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States. He served from March 1861 until his assassination on April 14, 1865. He led his country through the American Civil War, a period of immense constitutional, military and moral conflict. As president, he successfully preserved the Union, ended slavery, and promoted economic and financial modernization in the US. Realist Period summary of texts Realism in Inaugural Speeches Modern Period Obama's speech is also romantic in that he is trying to adress a lot of issues of the country and improve the american moral by using idealistic rhetoric Both Obama and Lincoln were elected during times of difficulty, Obama during recession and Lincoln during the Civil War. Both speeches reflect a need for solidarity and patriotism, and promise better times ahead. They employ not realist styles, but romantic ones, meant to inspire more than inform. Both speeches plant seeds of hope for the American people. Connection Between the Texts Lincoln's (not so) Realist Text Lincoln & Obama At the time of Lincoln's speech, towards the end of the Civil War, most Americans felt disillusioned. Although realism was the most prevelent writing style of the time, Lincoln used romanticism to unite his war torn nation. Lincoln adressed the public as "we" and incorporated God and religion in his speech in order to inspire the nation as a whole and improve moral after the war. He uses thought provoking imagery to inspire the nation to rebuild and unite under divine favor. Lincoln is trying to pull together a war torn nation. He uses ramanticism rather than the prevelent realism of the time. Barack Hussein Obama was born August 4th 1961 in the state of Hawaii. He was elected the 44th president of the United States in 2008, during a serious economic recession. In his campaign he emphasized "hope" and "change" for the US. He promised to lower taxes, provide universal healthcare and unemployment insurance, stimulate the economy and lower the national debt. He is still in office and has high hopes for reelection in this year. Thank you for your attention!
