Naturalism literature began to flourish by and by(prenominal) the civil fight and after the most loved Romanticism and niminy-piminy literature. Naturalism focuses on the lower to middle class man in which he is a futile figure of a domineering instauration of a opposed nature. Some sort of struggling for the fittest and the strong and foreordained are the solo sure winner.The Ambrose Bierce bal unrivaledy at snoot creek Bridge is told by a third party fibber.

The gnats that danced..the eddies . . . the beating of the dragon flies wings, the strokes water spiders legs, like oars which had lifted their ride all these made audible music.(Bierce)2004.A tip slid along beneath his eyes and he heard the rush of its body parting the water.(Bierce) 2004.This sketch sentence above almost completed the story the author wanted to conclude, that death has come and the heavens could be so near. As if describing that the soul came out from the eye and it moves thru the waters. Bierce in his few spoken communication was able to describe a real life situation which is one of the most fire characteristic of a naturalistic piece work. That after life naturally comes death.Peyton Fahrquhar was dead his body, with a broken neck, swung gently from side beneath the timbers of the Owl creek bridge.(Bierce) 2004.Though the whole work is a literary genius, it leaves a mark of pessimism on the part of the reader.

There was no hope but a dream or it could be real that the characters soul transcended only to be able to manifestation for his love ones. til now in this scene we can see that there is a humongous division.
