In form the picaresque novel is episodic; the hero travels from place to place meeting various people and undergoing various adventures. Since the characters of one episode seldom reappear, the incidents of one episode often have no connection with any other, the major unity is achieved only because the novel is written as the first person memoirs of a hero who appears in most of the adventures.
