Literature & Fiction

Fiction, literature created from the imagination, not presented as fact

Fiction, literature created from the imagination, not presented as fact, though it may be based on a true story or situation. Types of literature in the fiction genre include the novel, short story, and novella. Fiction, of course, is a work that is imagined from the mind, a different world than reality. Literary Fiction separates itself from Genre because it is not about escaping from reality, instead, it provides a means to better understand the world and delivers real emotional responses

According to the Oxford dictionary the definition of the word fiction is “Literature in the form of prose, especially novels that describes imaginary events and people.” While literature is any creation in writing, fiction is an imaginative work of writing. In reality, fiction becomes a part of literature.

Novels usually fall into three categories: literary fiction, genre fiction, and mainstream fiction. These discernible differences boil down to writing style and plot scale. Literary fiction has more carefully-crafted sentences, often relies heavily on symbolism and is character-driven. In contrast, genre fiction uses an accessible writing style to deliver a fast-paced plot.

The four main literary genres are poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and drama, with each varying in style, structure, subject matter, and the use of figurative language. The genre raises certain expectations in what the reader anticipates will happen within that work

Relating to, or having the characteristics of humane learning or literature a literary education a literary institution. Bookish sense 2 an essay written in a very literary style. Relating to books a literary agent a literary manuscript.

Conversely, a novel is a well-written fictional work, written in order to fascinate and entertain the readers with a story. While a novel is nothing but a type of book, a book is a work of literature, which includes novels, comic books, textbooks, journals, workbooks, and many other types of books
