They are only tremulations on the ether. Characterization is an essential element of a novel. It is the craft of creating characters in a novel or drama

The word novel derives from the Italian word novella, which means a new story or a new thing. A number of critics have defined the word novel in a different way. Dr. Tillyard defines novel as a novel is a not too unorganized, fictitious narrative in prose of at least, say, 20,000 words. They are only tremulations on the ether. But the novel as a tremulation can make the whole man alive tremble. It is the craft of creating characters in a novel or drama. The author unveils the personality of the character through characterization.

She had several works of both fiction and nonfiction in progress at the time of her death. Her quilts have been exhibited at juried crafts shows in New York City, Westchester County, and Baltimore, Maryland to name a few.

The elements of a novel are the same elements as that of the short story . Characters are the backbone of a novel. Theme the central or dominant idea in the story.

The elements of a novel are the same elements as that of the short story-plot, theme, setting, point of view, character-except that there may be more than one of each of these elements. That is, within the main plot of a novel there may be several subplots, there may be more than one theme, and point of view can certainly change as well. And Point of View is the voice & vision through which the events of a story gets told.

Elements of Style: A Novel. Written by Wendy Wasserstein . Narrated by Kathe Mazur. As Elements of Style opens out, we see a madcap mosaic of the social lives and mores of twenty-first century Manhattan-of romance, work, family, and friendship. Satiric, fierce, touching-and deliciously Wasserstein. Pure Wendy! She effortlessly makes the leap from stage to page with a novel that is loving, compassionate, flat-out funny. Wendy loved the word 'scintillating,' which is the best way to describe her stunning Elements of Style.

Read it in one sitting; brought tears to my eyes... I rank this with Rebecca Goldstein's The Mind Body Problem and Aldous Huxley's The Genius and the Goddess as one of my favorite novels about the mismatch between the mind and the body, and between intellectual and creative ambitions and real life, if one is too intelligent.

Many of us have been waiting for a long time for J.D. Salinger to grow up. We love the writing, the sensibility, and occasional magic; but alas, what wisdom it has belongs to the world of adolescence, which is why his books, as beloved as they are, sit (with Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan)on that peculiar bookshelf of 'not quite literature.' I told a classroom of 15-year olds at Stoneham (Mass) High School in 1962 that they had better read THE CATCHER IN THE RYE before they got much older or it wouldn't work for them. Sarah Hafner's novel is as close as I've come to discovering an adult J.D. Salinger. The honesty and wonderful irreverance is there, much of the sensibility, the gifted writing - it has the feel of the popular, young master. But behold, there is maturity here too, which, of course, costs a little in magic. And for me, the cost is well worth the marvelous and witty wisdom that we gain in its place. Grab a first edition of this book before it disappears. You'll love it and someday it'll make you a fortune! Sarah Hafner is the real thing.
