Expert's answer

Jack London's "To Build a Fire" clear example of naturalism and follows many of its conventions. One unique feature of naturalism in the story is that the characters (man and dog ) are controlled by the environment in which they are in. The story takes places in Yukon where the temperatures were very low and unfavorable for the man. When the man (main character) tries to build a fire to warm his body, nature defeats him when a load of snow from the tree falls and extinguishes its. He then drops the rest of match sticks in the snow limiting his chances to survive. In general, in this tale, nature is what defeats human hence a clear example of naturalism.
