During the closing years of the nineteenth century there appeared upon the American literary scene, suddenly and unannounced, a group of young writers and journalists who gave promise of a literary revolution. They evidenced no qualms in smashing traditional forms and accepted ideals. They wrote with impetuosity and confident ferocity. But although they have passed into comparative obscurity, these writers will be remembered because they were instrumental in opening the way for the naturalism and associated tendencies which predominate in the present era in American literature.
