Background: Mrs. Sommers has come upon $15 unexpectedly. She is not a rich woman, and this is quite
the sum of money for her. She has just purchased a very out-of-character pair of expensive stockings (like
hose) and has chosen to take herself out to lunch. She’d skipped lunch without realizing.
When she entered her appearance created no surprise, no consternation, as she had half feared it might. She seated herself at a small table alone, and an attentive waiter at once approached to take
her order. She did not want a profusion; she craved a nice and tasty bite-a half dozen blue-points,
a plump chop with cress, a something sweet-a crème frappée, for instance; a glass of Rhine wine,
and after all a small cup of black coffee.
These excerpts from Chopin are examples of the realist literary tradition because:
a. it focuses on the character rather than the plot
b. the main character is experiencing a different relationship with society
c. A&B
d. none of the above
