Fictional

Theme

Fiction describes people, places, events, and/or complete narrative works derived from imagination, in addition to, or rather than, from history or fact. Fiction may be presented in a variety of formats, including live performances, recorded media, and games, though the term originally referred to the major narrative forms of literature (see literary fiction), including the novel, novella, short story, play, and narrative poem. Fiction constitutes an act of creative invention, so that faithfulness to reality is not typically assumed; in other words, fiction is not expected to present only characters who are actual people or descriptions that are factually true. The context of fiction is generally open to interpretation, due to fiction's freedom from any necessary embedding in reality; however, some fictional works are claimed to be, or marketed as, historically or factually accurate, complicating the traditional distinction between fiction and non-fiction. Fiction is a classification or category, rather than a specific mode or genre, unless used in a narrower sense as a synonym for a particular literary fiction.
