      Dystopia is realism, at least when it is done well. It depicts the world as it really is, through the refractive prism of extreme metaphor. It’s a realism that uses mirrors, sometimes fun-house mirrors. It’s where literary modernism and science fiction naturally converge when naturalism is married with the literature of ideas. However, there is one book which I read this year that turned out to be the best book I've ever read. This book is A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin. I am truly happy and thankful that I've had the privilege of reading this masterclass, the writing is absolutely beautiful and the story really connected with me in ways stories rarely do. Librarian's tip: This book is about socialist realism in the Soviet Union. Read preview Overview. Painting and Sculpture in Europe, to By Fritz Novotny Penguin Books, Librarian's tip: Chap. 12 "Realism in France" and Chap. 14 "Under the Sign of Realism" Read.
