Literary Terms/Termos Literários: Novel/Romance

Post by SteelInferno on Mon Jul 03, 2017 12:47 am

English/Inglês:
Novel

Portuguese/Português:
Romance

Explanation/Explicação:
Wikipedia wrote:A novel is any relatively long piece of written narrative fiction, normally in prose, and typically published as a book.
The genre has been described as having "a continuous and comprehensive history of about two thousand years,"[1] with its origins in classical Greece and Rome, in medieval and early modern romance, and in the tradition of the novella. The latter, an Italian word for a short story to distinguish it from a novel, has been used in English since the 18th century for a work that falls somewhere in between.

Ciberdúvidas wrote:Romance: «Do lat. “romanice”, à maneira de Roma, pelo fr. “roman” e ingl. “romance”. Termo que designa tanto a forma poética da tradição popular, que canta feitos épicos, em medida velha (versos heptassilábicos), geralmente em rima assonante, como forma mais extensa do relato ficcional. Geralmente, distingue-se da novela pela maior complexidade e variedade da técnica narrativa, pela maior profundidade do estudo psicológico das personagens, pela maior lentidão do ritmo narrativo (cenas, episódios), pelo encaixe de episódios autónomos e dispersivos, pela reflexão filosófico-cultural imprimida pelo narrador, como instância privilegiada do autor.»
