Session 7: Drama and Fiction (June 4, 2007)

Session 8: Fiction 1 (June 11, 2007)

I handed back the assignments and spoke about the answers the different questions found. Click here for model solution.

We tried to discuss the two stories and Snoopy's grand novel (handout). Questions were: What is a novel? A short history of the words "novel" (dt. Roman), "Romance" (im deutschen ebenfalls Roman, je nach Kontext auch Romanze, Barockroman), "Novella" (dt. Novelle), "short story" (Kurzgeschichte), heroic/comic epic (dt. heroisches und komisches (Vers-)epos).

Why did the English and the Spanish introduce the word "novel" (which used to stand for what is now seen as the "novella") in order to speak of extended prose fictions? (This was the content of one of the Winter semester's lectures).

In order to speak about the narration/ the narrator's point of view, I began a debate of the content. The debate was finally suspended it will be continued with an additional look at:
