    9. The famous European realistic writers that were known were Daniel Defoe, George Eliot, Anthony Trollope, Honoré de Balzac, Stendhal, Gustave Flaubert, and Leo Tolstoy

    • Good work Majo. Just in case you may know, Daniel Defoe wrote “Robinson Crusoe”; George Eliot, was in fact a woman, wrote many famous novels. Honoré de Balzac wrote the Comédie humaine which consists of 91 finished works (stories, novels or analytical essays) and 46 unfinished works (some of which exist only as titles).[1] It does not include Balzac’s 5 theatrical plays or his collection of humorous tales, the “Contes drolatiques” (1832–37).

    4. Melville’s perception of war was bad and disappointing because it strengthened his pessimism. Even though he was fascinated by war and he showed in some of his poems the heroism of fighters , he rather focus on humanity’s basic evil.

    Whitman’s perception of war when he went in 1862 was optimistic because he saw how brave the soldiers were when he worked at the hospital

    Mark Twain was the famous writer who used realism and regionalism on his writings. Because he talked about real events that as the civil war and others of daily life in America and he made it using sarcasm based on exagerated methaphors.

    14. Because he tends to use simple, direct prose to depict ordinary men and women in everyday situations. They value the individual above plot, creating stories that explore the psychology of the characters that his stories are based on.

    10. Realism was different from regionalism because regionalism sometimes becomes unreal and sentimental in the description of the environment, realism was always very accurate in portraying social conditions exactly as they were.

    The kind of novel that would show how war was really like would be a “realistic novel’,because it tells with details how war was, the exact things of the conflict it is very explicit

    Because there were not so many famous writters that lived during the war. And the ones that existed used very specific details that werent appropiated for the time, the language and the words they used were not well recieved by the population.
