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.
Call It Courage
IT HAPPENED many years ago, before the traders and missionaries first came
into the South Seas, while the Polynesians were still great in numbers and
fierce of heart. But even today the people of Hikueru sing this story in their
chants and tell it over the evening fires. It is the story of Mafatu, the Boy Who
They worshiped courage, those early Polynesians. The spirit which had urged
them across the Pacific in their sailing canoes, before the dawn of recorded
history, not knowing where they were going nor caring what their fate might
be, still sang its song of danger in their blood. There was only courage. A man
who was afraid--what place had he in their midst and the boy Mafatu – son of
Tavana Nui, the Great Chief of Hikueru--always had been afraid. So the people
drove him forth. Not by violence, but by indifference.
Mafatu went out alone to face the thing he feared the most. And the people of
Hikueru still sing his story in their chants and tell it over the evening fires.
It was the sea that Mafatu feared. He had been surrounded by it ever since he
was born The thunder of it filled his ears; the crash of it upon the reef, the
mutter of it at sunset, the threat and fury of its storms--on every hand, wherever
he turned--the sea.
He could not remember when the fear of it first had taken hold of him. Perhaps
it was during the great hurricane which swept Hikueru when he was a child of
three. Even now, twelve years later, Mafatu could remember that terrible
morning. His mother had taken him out to the barrier-reef to search for sea
urchins in the reef pools. There were other canoes scattered at wide intervals
along the reef. With late afternoon the other fishermen began to turn back.
They shouted warnings to Mafatu's mother. It was the season of hurricane and
the people of Hikueru were nervous and ill at ease, charged, it seemed, with an
almost animal awareness of impending storm.
