Psychological realism


Psychological realism is the sense that characters in fictional narratives have realistic “interiority” or complex emotional and intellectual depth, including perhaps subconscious urges and fears they are not aware of. It is a writing style which accentuates interior characterization, the motives and circumstances, which are caused and developed by an external action. In this type of writing the authors often delve much deeper into the mind of their characters than novels of other genres. A psychological novel can be called a novel of the inner man. On an internal level, it may involve the revelation of characters' thoughts about themselves and others.In some cases, the stream of consciousness technique, as well as interior monologues and flashbacks may be employed to better illustrate the inner workings of the human mind.

Psychological realism is associated most closely with the movement toward "realism" and "naturalism" in the nineteenth- and twentieth-centuries. After psychoanalysis appeared, Freudian ideas influenced many writers who sought to incorporate his theories into their own depictions of characters. Arthur Miller is considered one of the major contributors to the practice of this genre in American literature.
