The paper examines the presence of realism in fiction and uses Russell Banks' novel "Sweet Hereafter" as an example. The paper defines realism in literature and includes the development of characters.

From the Paper:

"Realism in fiction presents the reader with the unreality of fiction wrapped in an illusion of reality. Characters, plots and settings are plausible, suggesting that they could actually exist in real life. In most cases, realist authors have derived their stories from actual experiences and issues, so the ring of truth permeates them. Realism enables the reader to engage fully in the story because he perceives it as true."
