Naturalistic writers focus on extreme conditions that shape and govern human character. Jack London, a naturalistic writer, places men in such situations. These men do have their characters molded by nature, however, a majority of the time their deaths almost defeat the purpose. Naturalism spans from Darwin’s theory of evolution: “Survival of the fittest”, in that weaker parts of every species will eventually die off, like the ignorant men in these stories. This literary style within stories frequently depicts humans as objective and entitled when contrasted with nature.
Are humans born savages? Yes, humans are born savages; and William Golding’s Lord of the Flies proves this. In Lord of the Flies, William Golding shows the kids’ return to their natural state of savagery as they drift further and further away from civilization. Civilization is just a facade and inside each and every human there is the basic instinct of survival, and that drives the savagery within. Everyone is capable of stabbing, shooting, or murdering someone, however, everyone has their own trigger… for some, it might be jealousy or envy and for some, it could be pure anger.

In Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly’s novel, Frankenstein, readers will identify several similarities. First, the both share a love of nature.

William James once said in his book “ History is a bath of blood”, “Modern man inherits all the innate pugnacity and all the love of glory of his ancestors. Showing war’s irrationality and horror is of no effect on him. The horrors make the fascination. War is the strong life; it is life in Extremis; war taxes are the only ones men never hesitate to pay, as the budgets of all nations show us.” (303) However, this does not seem true to most returning veterans.
