Adventures in Realism

Adventures in Realism offers a scholarly yet accessible introduction to realism as it has evolved since the 19th century. Comprising 16 newly-commissioned essays written by a distinguished group of contributors, including Slavoj Žižek and Fredric Jameson, this wide-ranging work:

  • •  Provides the historical, cultural, intellectual, and literary contexts necessary to understand developments in realism
  • •  Addresses the artistic mediums and technologies such as painting and film that have helped shape the way we perceive reality
  • •  Explores literary and pictorial sub-genres such as naturalism and socialist realism.

Each section concludes with a short bibliography and a guide to further reading.
