Summary

This chapter examines the spread of the generic term nouvelle (and the related histoire) in subtitles between 1601 and 1750 as a second way of empirically describing the 1660 rupture. It follows correlations between the use of the subtitle and other characteristics such as length, truth posture, and historical setting. Nonetheless, most correlations are weak or temporary, resulting in the conclusion that novels with the nouvelle subtitle are probably not substantially different from those without it.
