A novel is a relatively long work of narrative fiction, normally written in prose form, and which is typically published as a book. The present English word for a long work of prose fiction derives from the Italian novella for "new", "news", or "short story of something new", itself from the Latin novella, a singular noun use of the neuter plural of novellus, diminutive of novus, meaning "new". Walter Scott made a distinction between the novel, in which (as he saw it) "events are accommodated to the ordinary train of human events and the modern state of society" and the romance, which he defined as "a fictitious narrative in prose or verse; the interest of which turns upon marvellous and uncommon incidents". However, many such romances, including the historical romances of Scott, Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights and Herman Melville's Moby-Dick, are also frequently called novels, and Scott describes romance as a "kindred term". This sort of romance is in turn different from the genre fiction love romance or romance novel
A short story is a piece of prose fiction that typically can be read in one sitting and focuses on a self-contained incident or series of linked incidents, with the intent of evoking a "single effect" or mood.
A dictionary definition is "an invented prose narrative shorter than a novel usually dealing with a few characters and aiming at unity of effect and often concentrating on the creation of mood rather than plot."
The short story is a crafted form in its own right. Short stories make use of plot, resonance, and other dynamic components as in a novel, but typically to a lesser degree. While the short story is largely distinct from the novel or novella (a shorter novel), authors generally draw from a common pool of literary techniques.
The Summer of the Swans
Sara Godfrey was lying on the bed tying a kerchief on the dog, Boysie.
“Hold your chin up, Boysie, will you?” she said as she braced herself on
one elbow. The dog was old, slept all the time, and he was lying on his side
with his eyes closed while she lifted his head and tied the scarf.
Her sister Wanda was sitting at the dressing table combing her hair.
Wanda said, “Why don’t you leave Boysie alone?”
“There’s nothing else to do,” Sara answered without looking up. “You
want to see a show?”
“It’s called ‘The Many Faces of Boysie.’ ”
“Now I know I don’t want to see it.”
Sara held up the dog with the kerchief neatly tied beneath his chin and
said, “The first face of Boysie, proudly presented for your entertainment
and amusement, is the Russian Peasant Woman. Taaaaaa-daaaaaa! ”
“Leave the dog alone.”
“He likes to be in shows, don’t you, Boysie?” She untied the scarf,
refolded it and set it carefully on top of the dog’s head. “And now for the
second face of Boysie, we travel halfway around the world to the
mysterious East, where we see Boysie the Inscrutable Hindu. Taaaaaaadaaaaaa!”
With a sigh Wanda turned and looked at the dog. “That’s pathetic. In
people’s age that dog is eighty-four years old.” She shook a can of hair
spray and sprayed her hair. “And besides, that’s my good scarf.”
“Oh, all right.” Sara fell back heavily against the pillow. “I can’t do
anything around here.”
“Well, if it’s going to make you that miserable, I’ll watch the show.”
“I don’t want to do it any more. It’s no fun now. This place smells like a
perfume factory.” She put the scarf over her face and stared up through the
thin blue material. Beside her, Boysie lay back down and curled himself into
a ball. They lay without moving for a moment and then Sara sat up on the
bed and looked down at her long, lanky legs. She said, “I have the biggest
feet in my school.”
