Genre Description

The genre is a term principally used for certain fictional works that are claimed to hold literary merit. Despite the fact that all genres have works that are well written, those works are generally not considered literary. To be considered literary, a work usually must be "critically acclaimed" and "serious" In practice, works in this genre often are "complex, literate, multilayered novels that wrestle with universal dilemmas".

Characteristics

This niche is usually not considered a genre, with associated conventions, but there are common characteristics that can help define it.

Characterization

In general it focuses on the subjects of the narrative to create "introspective, in-depth character studies" of "interesting, complex and developed" characters. This contrasts with paraliterary fiction where "generally speaking, the kind of attention that we pay to the subject in literature ... has to be paid to the social and material complexities of the object".

Plot

It is not focus on plot as much as paraliterary fiction. Usually, the focus is on the "inner story" of the characters who drive the plot with detailed motivations to elicit "emotional involvement" in the reader.

Style

This fiction is often described as "elegantly written, lyrical, and ... layered".

Tone

The tone is usually serious and, therefore, often darker than paraliterary fiction.

Pacing

The pacing is slower than paraliterary fiction. As Terrence Rafferty notes, "literary fiction, by its nature, allows itself to dawdle, to linger on stray beauties even at the risk of losing its way."

As A Genre

Some authors suggest that in itself it is just another genre or set of genres. Samuel R. Delany, for example, notes that the "literary genres might be characterized as the 'tyranny of the subject'" because of the focus on the "subject, the self, [and] psychology". On the other hand, Mort Castle suggests that this genre is composed of three sub genres: literature (i.e., classics), realism, and postmodernist fiction.
