There are some ways to express ideas, especially in a literary work. There is a literary work that brings us to the world of dreams and takes us away from reality. It has to be contrasted with a literary work that needs our interpretation. Literature is a personal expression of feeling including experience, idea, motivation, convidence in the concrete description by using language. Novel is a part of prose form beside short story. The most of people read novel and short story. A novel expresses some aspect of human’s love and existance. Because novel talks about human activities and describes what happened in surounding ,so it is written in long composition. Novel is generally thought of as countaining about forty five thousand words or more (Kenney, 1966; 103). So novel is longer narrative than short story and novella.
Novel as aliterary works has known since eighteenth century in England.With the result as like novel, poem, poetry, drama, and prose. Prose is often as specific terms for all discourage spoken or written which is not patterned into reccurent matrix united that we call verse. Prose has longer meaning because it covers everything that is written as literary work but it includes some of non fiction work.

Plot of a story is deals with events that accure in temporal sequence. The event connects each other. They emphasize falling on cassuality.

Character is personality or traits. Character is ones who are involved in the story .If we talk about personality or traits. It is meant we will know the method of characterization. Method of characterization is the techniques an author uses to reveal the personality and character of a fictional person an author reveals a character’s personality. Character is also meaner person. In the literary work there is character that never develops until end. It is called flat character. There is also character that develops or changes.It is called round charactsr.
As we see the rule of the character in developing plot. It can be deferred to be main character and the support character or the mayor character and the minor character.
Theme as the meaning of the story which especially account of the largest number of its elements in the simplest way (Stantion, 1965: 30). The theme is something that has traditionally concerned writers and that therefore is a legitimate concern of readers (Kenney, 1966; 88)Theme is simple the meaning of the story realise; themeaning the story discovers. By theme we mean the necessary implication of the whole story. Not as a sparatable port of story. Theme in fiction is what is able to make of the total experience rendered.
