Chinese short stories and novels have a long history of development and they bear specific characteristics. Before the Chinese short story attained maturity in the eighth century, fictional elements had occurred in other types of literature, especially in the early biographical records. Chinese classical fiction developed in distinct stages: the embryonic form existed from the fourth to the end of the sixth centuries; short stories made their appearance, attained maturity and developed during the period starting from the early seventh to thirteenth centuries; novels by literati in collaboration with folk artists appeared and developed from the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries; the appearance and development of novels by individual writers were witnessed from the beginning of the seventeenth to the beginning of the twentieth centuries.
