Novellas for English EE

Recommended Posts


I was wondering if it was acceptable to analyse a novella for my Extended Essay in English A Literature.

Are novellas too short to analyse well? Does the IB have any requirements for the length of the text to be studied?

Thanks for all the help, in advance!

Heart of Darkness is a novella, very short, and no one has yet exhausted its possibilities for interpretation, let alone produced reams of essays, journal articles and books of critical commentary -- tons have been written on this novella and it continues to generate an inexhaustible supply or words.


So to answer your question, "no".


To both questions
