Novella This etymological distinction avoids confusion of the literatures and the forms, with the novel being the more important, established fictional form. Austrian writer Stefan Zweig's "Die Schachnovelle" (1942) (literally, "The Chess Novella", but translated in 1944 as "The Royal Game") is an example of a title naming its genre.
Novella Google "novels" and "length" and you will find tables of word counts, separating out novels from novellas, even from the esoteric and still shorter "novelette"—as though prose works were dog show contestants, needing to be entered into proper categories. But when it comes to writing, any distinctions that begin with an objective and external quality like size are bound to be misleading. The delicate, gem-like jigsaw of Thornton Wilder's "The Bridge of San Luis Ray" could not be more unlike the feverishly cunning philosophical monologue of Albert Camus' "The Fall", but both novels are about the same length.
Novella Dictionaries define novelette similarly to "novella"; sometimes identically, sometimes with a disparaging sense of being trivial or sentimental. Some literary awards have a longer "novella" and a shorter "novelette" categories, with a distinction based on word count.
Novella In his essay, "Briefly, the case for the novella", Canadian author George Fetherling (who wrote the novella "Tales of Two Cities") said that to reduce the novella to nothing more than a short novel is like "saying a pony is a baby horse".
Novella Not until the late 18th and early 19th centuries did writers fashion the novella into a literary genre structured by precepts and rules, generally in a realistic mode. At that time, the Germans were the most active writers of the "novelle" (German: "Novelle"; plural: "Novellen"). For the German writer, a novella is a fictional narrative of indeterminate length—a few pages to hundreds—restricted to a single, suspenseful event, situation, or conflict leading to an unexpected turning point ("wendepunkt"), provoking a logical but surprising end. "Novellen" tend to contain a concrete symbol, which is the narrative's focal point.
Novella A novella generally features fewer conflicts than a novel, yet more complicated ones than a short story. The conflicts also have more time to develop than in short stories. Unlike novels, novellas are usually not divided into chapters and are often intended to be read at a single sitting, as is the short story, although in a novella white space is often used to divide the sections, and therefore, the novella maintains a single effect. Warren Cariou wrote:
Novella This list contains those novellas that are widely considered to be the best examples of the genre, through their appearance on multiple best-of lists. See list of novellas for other notable examples.
Novella The novella is generally not as formally experimental as the long story and the novel can be, and it usually lacks the subplots, the multiple points of view, and the generic adaptability that are common in the novel. It is most often concerned with personal and emotional development rather than with the larger social sphere. The novella generally retains something of the unity of impression that is a hallmark of the short story, but it also contains more highly developed characterization and more luxuriant description.
Novella Commonly, longer novellas are referred to as novels; Robert Louis Stevenson's "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" (1886) and Joseph Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" (1899) are sometimes called novels, as are many science fiction works such as H. G. Wells' "The War of the Worlds" (1897) and Philip Francis Nowlan's "Armageddon 2419 A.D." (1928). Less often, longer works are referred to as novellas. The subjectivity of the parameters of the novella genre is indicative of its shifting and diverse nature as an art form. In her 2010 "Open Letters Monthly" series, "A Year With Short Novels", Ingrid Norton criticizes the tendency to make clear demarcations based purely on a book's length:
Novella Stephen King, in his introduction to "Different Seasons", a collection of four novellas, has called the novella "an ill-defined and disreputable literary banana republic"; King notes the difficulties of selling a novella in the commercial publishing world, since it does not fit the typical length requirements of either magazine or book publishers. Despite these problems, however, the novella's length provides unique advantages; in the introduction to a novella anthology titled "Sailing to Byzantium", Robert Silverberg writes:
