Realism in American Literature - A Leisurely Quiz

summertimeSummertime on 07/16/2008

RealisminAmericanLiteratureALeisurelyQuiz Photo Hello! This is titled a "leisurely" quiz, as it is not geared for speed. Each question includes an excerpt from a published work of an author. This results in questions that appear quite lengthy. You may or may not want to read the excerpt which is provided as a clue for the title of a book.

If time is of essence, please consider passing on this quiz in lieu of a low rating! :) Thank you. Summertime

Realists write stories using everyday characters, situations, and objects, all in a "true-to-life" fashion, typically representing the middle-class life style. I've provided an author's name, some background information about his/her life which I found of interest, as well as an excerpt from one of the respective writings for your reading pleasure. After reading the excerpt, please select the correct story title.

I hope you will enjoy the content which is intended for enjoyment, and perhaps even a bit of enlightenment about a few outstanding American literary realists. So, with that said, if you're still up for the quiz, why not pour a cup of coffee, or maybe a glass of wine, relax and enjoy!

Have a wonderfully, glorious day! Summertime

Most of the works quoted here are so obscure that I was reduced to simply guessing most of them--not very satisfying as a quiz, I'm afraid.

C. Perkins lived a good long life. 1802--1935

Question 8. Did she really write the story in 1802 and then die in 1935? Considering that even if she wrote the story as she was being born, she was 133 years old when she committed suicide, I think she must have had a good long life.

You might want to check the quotation in question #4. I don't think that Business 2.0 was around when Howells was writing.
