On the 22d of September I was asked by the World if I could have myself committed to one of the asylums for the insane in New York, with a view to writing a plain and unvarnished narrative of the treatment of the patients therein and the methods of management, etc. Did I think I had the courage to go through such an ordeal as the mission would demand? Could I assume the characteristics of insanity to such a degree that I could pass the doctors, live for a week among the insane without the authorities there finding out that I was only a "chiel amang 'em takin' notes?" I said I believed I could. I had some faith in my own ability as an actress and thought I could assume insanity long enough to accomplish any mission intrusted to me. Could I pass a week in the insane ward at Blackwell's Island? I said I could and I would. And I did. - Taken from "Ten Days In A Mad-House" written by Nellie Bly

"Both newspaper and magazine journalism in the nineteenth century fully participated in the development and emergence of American realism in the arts, which attempted to portray everyday life accurately, especially in fiction. In photographs and artists' sketches as well as news articles and features, journalists exposed the stories and conditions that became the material for American realism, and they were also its early and vocal advocates. This relationship peaked from 1890 to 1910, when writers who might be called the first literary journalists closed the circle by more fully adopting the fiction writer's style of attempting to 'show the reader real life, ' as their literary progeny Tom Wolfe would put it many years later."--Page 4 of cover.
