So by opening the book showing us McTeague getting his pitcher of beer, Norris is already suggesting the way in which we can't escape our inherited human nature. Yup: in Naturalistland, we're doomed from the get-go. Stylistic Analysis. McTeague is a famous Naturalist novel. The novel, of course, was the favorite literary genre of the Naturalists.

    "McTeague" is the story of a poor dentist scraping by in San Francisco at the end of the 19th century and his wife Trina, whose $5, lottery winning sets in motion a shocking chain of events. This edition features a new Afterword. Revised reissue. McTeague is a simple dentist who becomes infatuated with Trina, the cousin of his friend Marcus. Trina then buys a winning lottery ticket, and McTeague announces his plans to marry her. But their marriage quickly falls apart as greed consumes them both, and Marcus' jealousy toward McTeague boils over/5(K).

    The McTeague's had come to use it as a sort of substitute for a table. After breakfast and supper Trina piled the plates and greasy dishes upon it to have them out of the way. One afternoon the Other Dentist, McTeague's old-time rival, the wearer of marvellous waistcoats, was surprised out of all countenance to receive a visit from McTeague. This graphic depiction of urban American life centers around McTeague, a dentist practicing in San Francisco at the turn of the 20th century. While at first content with his life and friendship with an ambitious man named Marcus, McTeague eventually courts and marries Trina, a parsimonious young woman who wins a large sum of money in a lottery. The greed of the majority of the characters in 5/5(1).
