Apprenticeship Writings of Frank Norris 1896-1898: Volume One: 1896-1897 (Memoir 219)
Joseph R. McElrath and Douglas K. Burges
Frank Norris (1870-1902) has long been recognized by cultural historians as a “touchstone” figure, clearly signaling in 1899 the emergence of an American school of Literary Naturalism. “McTeague: A Story of San Francisco” secured this honor for him that year as it registered more fully than any previous Am. novel the Darwinian view of life that is the essential characteristic of all subsequent Naturalistic fictions. It thus marked as well the rejection of the Victorian Era’s habitually idealistic representations of human nature & its basically religious world-view, offering instead a post-metaphysical portrait of the human condition that has remained popular in 20th-century literary & intellectual circles. This vol., the first of two vols., includes all of the known writings of Frank Norris published between 11 April 1896 & 1897. Illus.
