The idea is extremely simple: Art should replicate real life as closely as possible. It should be a "SliceOfLife" if you will, and consistent with our expectations of reality outside the text. Realism has had various movements in different media over the centuries, and not necessarily coincident: Theatrical realism became manifest much later than realism in painting. It also appears in other forms in certain genres, such as the seeding idea of [[MohsScaleOfScienceFictionHardness hard]] ScienceFiction - the material reality of the fictional world should correspond as closely as possible to that of ours. It informs such concerns as RealisticDictionIsUnrealistic.

* Maupassant, Flaubert's protege, had a similar style. When he depicts people at war, he focuses on their fears, anxieties and sacrifices. His work also incorporates the developing Scientific Method. In L'Horla, when the character encounters an unknown being, he tries to study it. This was a good 40 years before Lovecraft emerged on the scene.

Realism can also have different forms within a given medium. A painting could, for example, be photorealistic but depict Greco-Roman gods battling on a field. Similarly, a painting could be very abstract but depict something understood as realistic, such as two people having a conversation over coffee. The "Kitchen-Sink" dramas of the 1950s are an example of one form of realism in the {{television}} medium.

* Flaubert's realism emerged as a reaction against the Romantics, who he viewed a suicidally melodramatic. His work is about toning down and checking that emotion. For example, in Felicite, the main character's love relationships with her parent and her motherly relationship to her employeer's daughter are much more important than her love her affair.

However, Flaubert himself had doubts about the "realist" label feeling that his condemnations of superficial romanticism was easily mistaken for superficial realism.
