 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
While the proposal of an `experimental method' applied to the novel was undoubtedly innovative for its time, the parallel between novelist and scientist is not altogether satisfactory and there are a number of significant inadequacies.
It is the novelist who controls the characters reactions to the circumstances in which s/he has chosen to place them.
However scrupulous the novelist has been in observing the real world and transposing it into his/her novel, in the final analysis s/he invents the characters, and so, in the final analysis it is virtually impossible for the novelist to attain the degree of objectivity that Zola appears to be claiming.

That American nature of Lily’s is the cause of her downfall and reflects Wharton’s conception of the American novelist’s position.

If Lily is a symbol of the American novelist, then she seeks the ideological and cultural independence of her country—America—but the only option which will bring her success is ideological marriage—to the cultural identity of Europe.

 The Novelist by Chris Orcutt
They are not writers, and certainly not novelists, you tell yourself; and as non-writers, they do not deserve to know about what you are writing, nor how many pages you have finished.
You are a novelist, as they see by the mounting stack of bond to your right, the two thesauri, and the dictionaries (also two).
The janitor does not take them, you say to yourself, because he knows you are a novelist, and novelists are by definition poor, and you need the five-cent deposits more than he.

 Charles Dickens: Novelist
Although Dickens was now a very successful novelist, he continued to be interested in social reform.
Of course it is not necessarily the business of a novelist, or a satirist, to make constructive suggestions, but the point is that Dickens's attitude is at bottom not even destructive.
There is no clear sign that he wants the existing order to be overthrown, or that he believes it would make very much difference if it were overthrown.
