Favorite parts of my midterm essay, in order:

The title: “Literary Evolution” (because how else are you going to make “define these four movements and use examples” sound cool aka professional XD)

This random metaphor: “This movement [Naturalism] also takes the Romantic idea that nature is perfection or there to protect those who respect it and dashes it against the rocky cliffs of survival.”

The last two sentences (which kinda go together but omg that actual last sentence if this counted more points I wouldn’t dare it): “All the changes came about because the world changed, society became something else - literature was needed to be something different for the now, the past, and the future, and/or someone decided to push the envelope, just a little bit more. And that is fascinating.”

SO BASICALLY LITERATURE IS THE BATMAN XD
