“To Build a Fire” has regionalism, naturalism, and realism has many examples. The regionalism for To Build a Fire starts with the beginning of the story when London described the “day as broken and gray” and the main character “climbs a high earth-bank” and the “Yukon is hidden under three feet of ice”. “London”. The naturalism in the story has multiple examples but the overall theme of it is that natural doesn 't care about the man in the story with the temperature being colder then he thought and when he walks on the ice and gets his feet and then you got the men building his finally fire in which he pulls to much twigs and sticks from the tree so the consequence is that the tree drops all its snow on him and the fire.

Ray Bradbury uses the character Clarisse and her connection to nature to show that nature is very calming and can lead to happiness. Late one night when Montag was coming home from work, he turned the corner and almost ran into Clarisse. Montag and Clarisse began to talk to each other and then,” They walked in the warm-cool blowing night on the silvered pavement and there was the faintest breath of fresh apricots and strawberries in the air” (Bradbury 10). This shows that natural things
Nature is easily projected onto, as it allows for a sense of peacefulness and escapism. Due to its ability to evoke an emotional reaction from the masses, many writers have glorified it through various methods, including describing its endless beauty and utilizing it as a symbol for spirituality. Along with authors, artists also show great respect and admiration for nature through paintings of grandiose landscapes. These tributes disseminate a fixed interpretation of the natural world, one full of meaning and other worldly connections. In “Against Nature,” Joyce Carol Oates strips away this guise given to the environment and replaces it with a harsher reality. To her, it is superficial and only has overlying positive associations because humans
"In these short stories, as in most of his work, Crane is a consummate ironist, employing a technique that most critics find consistently suggests the disparity between an individual 's perception of reality and reality as it actually exists." This quote is written by poetryfoundation.org and applies to Stephen Crane 's "The Blue Hotel" as the entire story exists in the irony of one of the few characters introduced, the Swede. Being a consummate ironist means Stephen Crane is very skilled in the forming of his irony 's which can make it sometimes difficult to recognize all of them throughout his works. Other ironic situations occur throughout the story which will be explained in detail.

In Mary Shelley’s iconic gothic novel, Frankenstein, Romantic themes are strongly represented in order to propagandize Romanticism over the elements of knowledge and the Enlightenment. In her novel, Shelley uses gothic nature settings to foreshadow dark events that are about to happen in the novel. She also uses nature to intensify the effect that is brought during significant scenes, a strong example being, when Victor Frankenstein’s monster approaches him after a long period of time. Nature and its use to influence mood is one of the most paramount themes of both Frankenstein and Romanticism.

Naturalistic writers capture the powerful and beautiful essense of the natural world. Through naturalistic writing, authors convey their abstract perspectives and beliefs in order to illuminate the profound benefits that nature holds. Naturalist philosopher John Muir put forth the belief that a connection with nature is integral to the discovery of one identity and that only through nature is one able discover the extraordinary in the ordinary in the existence of life. Muir’s philosophy complements the ideologies of fellow naturalist activist Edward Abbey who accentuated the benefits of isolation through nature. The idea that isolation frees the human conscience was a belief that was steadfast to Abbey’s perspective of the world as the constructs
When Cather had to move to Nebraska, she hated it for the first year or so. This shows Naturalism because she sulked over the fact that she had to move. Likewise, in the story, Alexandra had gone through some tough times. Cather wrote, “She began to wonder whether she would not do better to finish her life alone. What was left of life seemed unimportant.” In a Naturalistic way, Alexandra has put that way of thinking onto herself. After college, Cather wanted to move out of Nebraska, so she moved to Pittsburg. This shows Naturalistic qualities because she wanted to go out and explore something different, rather than continue living with the sameness of the prairie. In the story Alexandra said, “‘We don’t move lightly and easily as you do , and our minds get stiff.’” Also she says, “‘she’s contented to live and work in a world that’s so big and interesting.” That shows Naturalism because the sameness of the world they lived in got to some people and made them want to leave and explore.

THE ROOM was filled with tension as the man walked to the distressed girl in the middle of the room. She was limp, her head hanging as she weakly tried to fight against the chains that held her down.

Stephen Crane 's works show sudden moves and changes in tone and perspective, and every now and again the works of literature end without setting up either assurance about characters or resolutions of problems. Crane 's symbolism is clear, however the works rarely give last interpretations. These qualities add to Crane 's multi-layered sardonicism. Crane commonly depicts outrageous encounters that come face to face with common individuals. His characters are not overwhelming, but rather they touch the baffling edges of their abilities for action, perception, and understanding. Crane 's works reflect a large portion of the major imaginative worries toward the finish of the nineteenth century, particularly naturalism, impressionism, and
