His name, the novel was already in the 12th Century and called just about everything that was written in Romansh. In the 13 Century, developed the novel of prose literature. The focus was a hero, the equivalent of the standard idea or wishful thinking of the man and his environment, anchored and rooted in a fixed order. Up to 18 Century hardly changed this picture. In the 18 Century, the novel gained significantly in importance. The focus now was the anti-hero who was individual, unique and often unattainable. The psychological interest grew and the relation of cause and effect, became a central issue. Mid-19th Century transformed image of the novel again. The novel was a complex and nuanced narrative work, with protagonists in a homunculus-form (artificial humans). The question of the possibilities and limitations of people at the present time and in the future are the focus of attention. The events are in experienced, described inner monologue, and thus win of subjectivity and authenticity. The environment is now not trusted and the actions can not necessarily explain or be coherent. The novel is therefore one of those days, like today, in addition to the medium of newspapers, the most common Lesewerken and documents.
