A narrative sketch is the opposite of an anecdote (which is a short, short story with a beginning, middle, and end). Instead, the narrative sketch focuses on character, setting, or mood. It is clearly not meant to be complete on its on, but instead, is meant to provide the reader with a memorable moment. Narrative sketches were used a lot during the vaudeville days and, according to E-notes, one of the most famous writers to use this genre was Washington Irving, particular in the story "The Devil and Tom Walker."
