ABSTRACT
The article discusses the naturalist visions depicted in Paul Laurence Dunbar's "The Sport of the Gods." It claims that the naturalism found in the novel is a qualitative change from Dunbar's past compositions. The novel is likewise stated to convey a racial dimension, which has been less dealt by literary naturalists. Moreover, "The Sport of the Gods" is considered an important literary work in American naturalism.
