K. Chesterton, set in a future London * The Foundation Trilogy, Isaac Asimov (basis for the character "The Mule") Naraka: Hindu mythology's Hell, but not for permanent damnation, and thus more like Christian myth's Purgatory. Narcissus: handsome young man in Greek mythology, whom the nymph Echo fell in love with; he fell for his own reflection when she magically punished him for rejecting her; he turned into a flower. The term "narcissism" in Psychology derives from this tale.

J. Perelman on the Fantasy Romance musical "One Touch of Venus" [1943] Petra Nash: Regency Romance Novels: * Heir Apparent [date?] * Lady Harriet's Harvest [HRE-36, Oct 1990] * Mr. Ravensworth's Ward [HRE-93, Mar 1993] Naso, Publius Ovidius: see Ovid Nasr-ed-Din: in legends of Turkey, a prankster/jester said to have died in 1410 A.D., sometimes called the Turkish Tyll Eulenspiegel. Nasser: storyteller and merchant of Arabia who, according to D'Herbelot, was more popular with a crowd than Muhammad (who read Old Testament stories out loud to them). The prophet then cursed Nasser and his audience. Daniel Nathan, pseudonym of Frederic Dannay Naturalism: the movement in fiction, begun after 1850 in France, reacting against imagination and escapism in the Romantic movement. Drawing strength from biological concepts of Darwin, and Taine's social determinism, the Naturalists attempted to replace the old subjectivity with new objectivity, and reveal humans and society as acurately as subjects in scientific experiments. The leaders included Balzac, Flaubert, and Stendahl (retroactively drafted as precursors), and explicitly Daudet, the brothers Goncourt, Maupassant, and (also acting as chief theoretician) Zola. The movement spread to England, with George Gissing, Thomas Hardy, Samuel Butler, and Somerset Maugham. In America, the movement accreted Stephen Crane (at least at first, in "Maggie: A Girl of the Streets"), Frank Norris, Jack London (who also intentionally wrote Science Fiction), Theodore Dresier, and James T. Farrell. It was briefly important in Germany (1882-1891), and perhaps earliest in Russia (Vissarion Belinksi, circa 1840). Today's division between Fantasy and Science Fiction is, historically, an outgrowth of the struggle between Romanticism and Naturalism. In the late 20th Century, various writers deliberately tried to bridge the gap.

G. K. Chesterton insisted in "A Defense of Nonsense" [The Defendant, 1901] that Edward Lear was better, in that his non sequiturs, disjointed strangenesses, and verbal coinages (such as "runcible spoon") make for a more powerful poetry than the logical-illogical inversions of Lewis Carroll (who was, after all, a mathematician). Other notable nonsense may be found in: * A Book of Nonsense [1972] Mervyn Peake poetry * The Man Who Was Thursday [1908] G.K. Chesterton * The Thirteen Clocks [1950] James Thurber * Fire and Hemlock [1985] Diana Wynne Jones * The Kindly Ones [1996] graphic novel by Neil Gaiman * the major works of James Joyce, including "Ulysses" and "Finnegan's Wake" [1939] * truths concealed in only-apparently nonsensical utterings of Fools and Oracles (see "Fool", "Oracle") * see also "Absurd", "Magic Word", "Satire", "Surrealism" * see also "Nostradamus" (according to "The Encyclopedia of Fantasy", John Clute & John Grant, St.Martin's, 1997, p.691) Your Humble Webmaster would like to note that a deeper analysis of Nonsense may be found through Communication Theory (as founded by Claude Shannon). When a message has been compressed or coded to make maximum use of a communications channel, it becomes statistically indistinguishable from noise. Poetry is more densely coded and compressed than ordinary prose, as in verse alone, every word, every syllable, has to have calculated effect. Hence nonsense poetry, a subset of Science Fiction and Fantasy POETRY, is meaningful and interesting precisely because it is "on the edge of chaos," where the experts on Artificial Life insist the most interesting an unpredictable phoneomena occur.
