Literature
Bildungsroman


A bildungsroman is a novel that shows a young protagonist's journey toward adulthood. (You've been there; you know how that felt.) By the end of the novel, the hero has learned a little about herself and the world around her — and in the very best examples, the reader has experienced a change, as well.
