  Novel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The new genre also adopted the name novel: this new novel was a work of new epic proportions, with the effect that the English (and Spanish) eventually needed a new word for the original short "novel": The term novella was created to fill the gap in English; "short story" brought a further refinement.
The story was firmly a "novel" and not a "romance": a story of unparalleled female virtue, with a heroine who had had the chance to risk an illicit amour and not only withstood the temptation but made herself more unhappy by confessing her feelings to her husband.

 Novel - LoveToKnow 1911
The plain and direct purpose of the novel is to amuse by a succession of scenes painted from nature, and by a thread of emotional narrative.
But the novel adapts itself to so large a range of readers, and covers so vast a ground in the imitation of life, that it is the unique branch of literature which may be cultivated without any real distinction or skill, and yet for the moment may exercise a powerful purpose.

Thus, the modern novel is rooted in two traditions, the mimetic and the fantastic, or the realistic and the romantic.
The novel became the dominant form of Western literature in the 19th cent., which produced many works that are considered milestones in the development of the form.
These novels are not only masterpieces of realism but also—in their carefully crafted form, experimental point of view, and superb style—supreme examples of the novel as a literary genre.

 Novel - MSN Encarta
Because novels are long—generally 200 pages or more—novelists can tell more richly detailed tales than can authors of briefer literary forms such as the short story.
For example, writers can produce novels that have the tension of a drama, the scope of an epic poem, the type of commentary found in an essay, and the imagery and rhythm of a lyric poem.
Like the people in the Bible, the novel’s characters may search for God and have their own particular dreams and ideals, but unlike many biblical characters, the characters in novels are generally presented as people without spiritual missions and destinies.

 The Novel
The novel is differentiated from its predecessors by its internal cohesion, its emphasis on a tightly orchestrated plot and action, its realistic portrayal of characters and situations, and its eschewing of overtly allegorical elements.
The novel thus has its genesis in the attempt to regulate writing, to propose a correct and decorous means of taming the potential dangers of the written word.
The novel's hegemony has recently been questioned by John Barth, who announced the death of the novel, and its "demise" has inspired the writers of the new novel, the post modern novel and hypertext fiction.

 Novel page
To some degree, this focus on the novel reflects a general shift of attention within literary studies away from poetry towards narrative, but we can further attribute the novel's predominance in postcolonial studies to three factors: the representational nature of the novel, its heteroglossic structure, and the function of the chronotope in the novel.
The representational power of the novel, its ability to give voice to a people in the assertion of their identity and their history, is of primary importance to postcolonial writers and scholars.
Studies of the novel as chronotope, another term coined by Bakhtin, have perhaps not been as important in the field as those focusing on issues of representation, identity, and heteroglossia, but it is an issue of large importance, especially in the work of more postmodern novelists like Salman Rushdie and critics like Homi Bhabha.

 The UVic Writer's Guide: Novel   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The novel is a long fictional narrative written in prose, which arose in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries and overtook verse narratives in popularity, eventually replacing them.
Novels can take any of the generic forms (epic, tragedy, comedy, romance, and satire), but there are two main types: the novel proper and the prose romance.
Other types of novel include: the social novel, in which the protagonist's difficulties arise from the social context (Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath [1939]); and the historical novel, in which a historical setting is treated in a detailed and realistic manner (Tolstoy's War and Peace [1869]).

NOVEL [novel] in modern literary usage, a sustained work of prose fiction a volume or more in length.
The term novel is derived from novella, Italian for a compact, realistic, often ribald prose tale popular in the Renaissance and best exemplified by the stories in Giovanni Boccaccio's Decameron (1348-53).
The historical novel embraces not only the event-filled romances of Scott, Cooper, and Kenneth Roberts, but also works that strive to convey the essence of life in a certain time and place, such as Sigrid Undset's Kristin Lavransdatter (1920-22), about life in medieval Norway, and Mary Renault's Mask of Apollo (1966), set in ancient Greece.

 Notes on the beginning of the English novel
Novels differ from earlier narrative fiction in a certain freedom from stereotypes in plot, character, and names.
The people who exist and the things that transpire in novels are recognizable as behaving and occurring in believable human ways -- things happen in the fictional world according to laws that are essentially like those governing the everyday world.
Readers of novels "identify" or "empathize" with the heroes and heroines of novels, suggesting a greater closeness between readers and novel characters than between readers and characters in other fictional forms.
