Literary realism is part of the realist art movement beginning with mid nineteenth-century French literature (Stendhal), and Russian literature and extending to the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

Realist authors chose to depict everyday and banal activities and experiences, instead of using a romanticized or similarly stylized presentation.
