About the Author: Frank Norris

Benjamin Franklin Norris, Jr was an American novelist, during the Progressive Era, writing predominantly in the naturalist genre His notable works include McTeague 1899 , The Octopus A California Story 1901 , and The Pit 1903 Although he did not openly support socialism as a political system, his work nevertheless evinces a socialist mentality and influenced socialist progressive writers such as Upton Sinclair Like many of his contemporaries, he was profoundly influenced by the advent of Darwinism, and Thomas Henry Huxley s philosophical defense of it Norris was particularly influenced by an optimistic strand of Darwinist philosophy taught by Joseph LeConte, whom Norris studied under while at the University of California, Berkeley Through many of his novels, notably McTeague, runs a preoccupation with the notion of the civilized man overcoming the inner brute, his animalistic tendencies His peculiar, and often confused, brand of Social Darwinism also bears the influence of the early criminologist Cesare Lombroso and the French naturalist Emile Zola.
