birth of the modern novel
A modern novel is a fictitious prose narrative (i.e., a concocted story or
imaginary account) of considerable length and complexity portraying
characters and usually presenting a sequential organization of actions and
current body of modern novels is an amazing collection that includes brilliant authors and masterpieces,
works exhibiting striking beauty and
significance that sparkle with artistic excellence. Compared with
other kinds of important literary works that tell stories—and
there are many of them—modern novels account
for an amazing number of the greatest books ever written.
The modern novel literary form has just experienced its two hundredth
birthday. Two hundred years may seem
like too long a time to call the modern novel modern, but modern is a relative term. Considering how long
mankind has been telling stories that are not novels, even at two centuries
the modern novel is a relatively recent development.
What, then, are the literary and linguistic traits that make modern novels
truly different from all these other ways to tell stories, and special?
What are their technical specs: their literary forms, genres, language
characteristics, and other properties? What is it about modern novels
that makes them especially effective and meritorious?
where, how, why, and by whom were they originally conceived?
