Zoom on the novel

Even the most reluctant to read one day had a novel in his hands. Whether it is because of a reading imposed by the school or any other occasion. Indeed, the novel is the most widely read genre in France. But, what exactly is a novel?

It is a literary genre, characterized by a fictional narrative, and which has multiple subgenres (fantasy, detective, science fiction …).

Origins of the novel

The term “novel” (Latin vulgar) means a Romanic translation of a text written in Latin. French literature born of the Strasbourg Oath, first text written in “novel”. This pact (of legal value) between the grandsons of Charlemagne was written in 842. Before that date, all the texts were written in Latin.

In the Middle Ages, in the twelfth century, the novel was written in verse. He thus evokes, through stories fabulous and close to the epic, the questions that concern most people at the time. In the 13th century, the worms became proses in the adventures of Lancelot du Lac. From this point on, the novel genre really develops.

The novel knows its hours of glory since the nineteenth century, whether historical, adventure, science fiction …

“Reading a novel throws light on life.” (Louis Aragon)
