What is a Whole Work?
A whole work is a complete project which may or may not be completed. They are typically longer than a short story, and can usually be divided into chapters or sections. There is some flexibility in how a whole work can be divided, but it is common to have a beginning, middle and end.
Some whole works, such as the Iliad and the Odyssey, are quite long and take several months or even years to read. For shorter pieces, a whole work can be much shorter, taking a few hours or a day to read.
