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 House of Mirth
Selden paused in surprise. In the afternoon rush of the Grand Central Station
his eyes had been refreshed by the sight of Miss Lily Bart.
It was a Monday in early September, and he was returning to his work from a
hurried dip into the country; but what was Miss Bart doing in town at that
season? If she had appeared to be catching a train, he might have inferred that
he had come on her in the act of transition between one and another of the
country- houses which disputed her presence after the close of the Newport
season; but her desultory air perplexed him. She stood apart from the crowd,
letting it drift by her to the platform or the street, and wearing an air of
irresolution which might, as he surmised, be the mask of a very definite
purpose. It struck him at once that she was waiting for some one, but he hardly
knew why the idea arrested him. There was nothing new about Lily Bart, yet
he could never see her without a faint movement of interest: it was
characteristic of her that she always roused speculation, that her simplest acts
seemed the result of far-reaching intentions.
An impulse of curiosity made him turn out of his direct line to the door, and
stroll past her. He knew that if she did not wish to be seen she would contrive
to elude him; and it amused him to think of putting her skill to the test.
"Mr. Selden—what good luck!"
She came forward smiling, eager almost, in her resolve to intercept him. One
or two persons, in brushing past them, lingered to look; for Miss Bart was a
figure to arrest even the suburban traveller rushing to his last train.
Selden had never seen her more radiant. Her vivid head, relieved against the
dull tints of the crowd, made her more conspicuous than in a ball-room, and
under her dark hat and veil she regained the girlish smoothness, the purity of
tint, that she
was beginning to lose after eleven years of late hours and indefatigable
dancing. Was it really eleven years, Selden found himself wondering, and had
she indeed reached the nine-and- twentieth birthday with which her rivals
"What luck!" she repeated. "How nice of you to come to my rescue!"
