Introduction to The Novel traces this literary form from its beginnings in Don Quixote to the present time. Students read excerpts and full-length novels, learning what differentiates the novel from earlier literary forms: length of over 150 pages; a primary plot, and possibly several sub-plots; populated with several characters, showcasing a protagonist and an antagonist; depth and development of characters' inner lives.
