A narrative can be serialized in two fundamental ways: on the one hand, by repeating a model, a pattern or a narrative structure; on the other, by splitting it into separate and consecutive installments. The first option derives from oral communication and story-telling and its origins can be identified in fairy tales, mythological cycles, Nordic sagas, Medieval chivalry, Renaissance epic (and today it can be identified in popular literature, film and television series).
