Naturalism is an offshoot of realism Although they are related they are indeed different Naturalism presents a deterministic view of mans life and actions while realism is the way things appear or might appear to be We see examples of naturalism in Stephen Cranes The Open Boat and also in his short story The Blue Hotel The Blue Hotel is a story of three men who arrived at a hotel during a snowstorm Mr Scully the owner and his son Johnnie gladly accepted the men into the hotel The men sat down to a game of cards with Johnnie and all was going well until one of the newcomers a Swedish man began to panic He stood up and began saying that someone had died in the room that they had been in and that he too will die in that very room The other men looked at him as if he were crazy yet he continued to cry out that he must leave before he gets killed This man was determined that his fate was death in this house and had almost gone mad That is when Scully came into the room brought the Swede upstairs gave him a drink and calmed him down When the Swede returned downstairs he was a completely different person For he was afraid of the Westerners before he went up as he believed them to be bad and dangerous men yet this was not the case upon his return He now had no fear and his whole attitude changed He demanded the men to play another round of cards and as he played he adopted the well hated fashion of board whacking During the game he got up and yelled you are cheatin at Johnnie Johnnie denied this accusation and it caused the two men to go outside and fight The Swedes actions were now out of control Even if the man was cheating there was no reason
