Some phases of narrative art
Text from page 76: "The progress of narrative art, especially in its relation to naturalism, has been traced. Though it cannot be maintained that narrative art is characteristic cf naturalistic periods, it has been shown that naturalism is favorable to the development of such a style. The scarcity of narration in the present period of naturalistic tendenocies is due, probably, to two reasons: the presence of interests other than the human element, which must dominate narrative art, and the symbolical and allegorical treatment of the human element when it is retained by the modern artist."
