The main characters in Naturalism are usually of the lower socioeconomic classes and often don’t have a strong moral compass. The moral failings of individuals or society as a whole, however, are considered dispassionately. The tone is often detached, emotionless, and scientific. When it comes to diction, ugly and unpleasant words may be chosen rather than lyrical or elegant ones. In descriptive passages, an excessive amount of detail may appear, but the arrangement will be informal, even chaotic, in order to show that society and nature are governed by random forces. Artificial or optimistic plot structures are avoided and the action seems more of a “slice of life” than an arc in which can result in characters who change, grow, and develop.
