Article Example
Novel A novel is a long, fictional narrative which describes intimate human experiences. The novel in the modern era usually makes use of a literary prose style, and the development of the prose novel at this time was encouraged by innovations in printing, and the introduction of cheap paper, in the 15th century.
Novel The length of a novel can still be important because most literary awards use length as a criterion in the ranking system.
Novel Early works of extended fictional prose, or novels, include works in Latin like the "Satyricon" by Petronius (c. 50 AD), and "The Golden Ass" by Apuleius (c. 150 AD), works in Sanskrit such as the 6th– or 7th-century "Daśakumāracarita" by Daṇḍin, and in the 7th-century "Kadambari" by Banabhatta, the 11th-century Japanese "Tale of Genji" by Murasaki Shikibu, the 12th-century "Hayy ibn Yaqdhan" (or "Philosophus Autodidactus", the 17th-century Latin title) by Ibn Tufail, who wrote in Arabic, the 13th-century "Theologus Autodidactus" by Ibn al-Nafis, another Arabic novelist, and "Blanquerna", written in Catalan by Ramon Llull (1283), and the 14th-century Chinese "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" by Luo Guanzhong.
Novel Popular literature also drew on themes of romance, but with ironic, satiric or burlesque intent. Romances reworked legends, fairy tales, and history, but by about 1600 they were out of fashion, and Miguel de Cervantes famously burlesqued them in "Don Quixote" (1605). Still, the modern image of medieval is more influenced by the romance than by any other medieval genre, and the word "medieval" evokes knights, distressed damsels, dragons, and such tropes.
Novel The early modern market, from the 1530s and 1540s, divided into low chapbooks and high market expensive, fashionable, elegant belles lettres. The "Amadis" and Rabelais' "Gargantua and Pantagruel" were important publications with respect to this divide. Both books specifically addressed the new customers of popular histories, rather than readers of "belles lettres". The Amadis was a multi–volume fictional history of style, that aroused a debate about style and elegance as it became the first best-seller of popular fiction. On the other hand, "Gargantua and Pantagruel", while it adopted the form of modern popular history, in fact satirized that genre's stylistic achievements. The division, between low and high literature, became especially visible with books that appeared on both the popular and "belles lettres" markets in the course of the 17th and 18th centuries: low chapbooks included abridgments of books such as Miguel Cervantes' "Don Quixote" (1605/1615)
Novel Heroic Romance is a genre of imaginative literature, which flourished in the 17th century, principally in France.
Novel Late 17th-century critics looked back on the history of prose fiction, proud of the generic shift that had taken place, leading towards the modern novel/novella. The first perfect works in French were those of Scarron and Madame de La Fayette's "Spanish history" "Zayde" (1670). The development finally led to her "Princesse de Clèves" (1678), the first novel with what would become characteristic French subject matter.
Novel However, one of the earliest English novels, Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe" (1719), has elements of the romance, unlike these novels, because of its exotic setting and story of survival in isolation. "Crusoe" lacks almost all of the elements found in these new novels: wit, a fast narration evolving around a group of young fashionable urban heroes, along with their intrigues, a scandalous moral, gallant talk to be imitated, and a brief, conciseness plot. The new developments did, however, lead to Eliza Haywood's epic length novel, "Love in Excess" (1719/20) and to Samuel Richardson's "Pamela, or Virtue Rewarded" (1741). Some literary historians date the beginning of the English novel with Richardson's "Pamela", rather than "Crusoe"
Novel Given these differences in opinion, what happened in the 18th century can best be described, not as the rise of the novel, but the rise of realism in fiction. Indeed, this is what Ian Watt sees as distinguishing the novel from earlier prose narratives.
Novel The rise of the word novel at the cost of its rival, the romance, remained a Spanish and English phenomenon, and though readers all over Western Europe had welcomed the novel(la) or short history as an alternative in the second half of the 17th century, only the English and the Spanish had, however, openly discredited the romance.
