Distinction between fiction and non fiction

  1. 1. Distinction Between Fiction and Non-Fiction Reported by: Sustituido, Rico Martin Parra, Karl Celestino, Edcel Plana, Wherner Von Ibañez, Mark Vincent
  2. 2. FICTION the form of any work that deals, in part or in whole, with information or events that are not factual, but rather, imaginary and theoretical
  3. 3. Kinds of Fiction • REALISRIC FICTION – although untrue, could actually happen. Some events, the people, and the places may even be real. It can be possible that in the future imagined events could physically happen. For example, Jules Verne's novel From The Earth To The Moon was proven possible in 1969, when Neil Armstrong landed on the Moon. • NON-REALISTIC FICTION – is that in which the story's events could not happen in real life, which involve an alternate form of history of mankind other than that recorded, or need impossible technology. A good deal of fiction books are like this, including works by Lewis Carroll (Alice In Wonderland), J. K. Rowling (Harry Potter), and J. R. R. Tolkien (The Lord of the Rings). • SEMI-FICTION – is fiction implementing a great deal of non-fiction,[2] for example: a fictional depiction "based on a true story", or a fictionalized account, or a reconstructed biography.
  4. 4. fundamental elements of fiction • PLOT, or storyline, is often listed as one of the fundamental elements of fiction. It is the rendering and ordering of the events and actions of a story • EXPOSITION is the portion of a narrative that introduces important background information to the reader • FORESHADOWING is a technique used by authors to provide clues so the reader can predict what might occur later in the story.
  5. 5. • The CLIMAX often resembles that of the classical comedy. It is the moment of greatest danger for the protagonist(s) and usually consists of a seemingly inevitable prospect of failure. • The FALLING action is the part of a story, usually found in tragedies and short stories, following the climax and showing the effects of the climax. • RESOLUTION occurs after the climax, where the conflict is resolved. It may contain a moment of final suspense, during which the final outcome of the conflict is in doubt.
  6. 6. • NON FICTION is generally speaking a necessary element of fictional literature. As Brooks and Warren said in Understanding Fiction and as many others have noted, no conflict, no story.
  7. 7. Types of Conflict • Person vs. Self is the theme in literature that places a character against their own will, confusion, or fears. • Person vs. Person is a theme in literature in which the main character's conflict with another person is the focus of the story. • Person vs. Society is a theme in fiction in which a main character's, or group of main characters', main source of conflict is social traditions or concepts. • Person vs. Nature is the theme in literature that places a character against forces of nature. • Person vs. Supernatural is a theme in literature that places a character against supernatural forces.
  8. 8. NON-FICTION is the form of any narrative, account, or other communicative work whose assertions and descriptions are understood to be factual. This presentation may be accurate or not—that is, it can give either a true or a false account of the subject in question—however, it is generally assumed that authors of such accounts believe them to be truthful at the time of their composition or, at least, pose them to their audience as historically or empirically true.
