Transcript of Poetry Genres
Lyric poetry is a genre that does not attempt to tell a story but instead is of a more personal nature. Rather than depicting characters and actions, it portrays the poet's own feelings, states of mind, and perceptions
Narrative poetry is a genre of poetry that tells a story. Narrative poetry may be the oldest type of poetry. It has been speculated that some features that distinguish poetry from prose, such as meter, alliteration and kennings, once served as memory aids for bards who recited traditional tales (wikipedia).
Sonnet (Form of Lyric Poetry)
First four lines typically introduce the topic. A sonnet usually follows an a-b-a-b rhyme pattern.
A poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world
A limerick is a kind of a witty, humorous, or nonsense poem, especially one in five-lines with a strict rhyme scheme (AABBA), which is sometimes obscene with humorous intent
A division of poetry where the placement on the page either forms a picture or evokes the actions of the poem.
Concrete Poetry (form of Visual Poetry): words are arranged to evoke the action
Poetry composed of either rhymed or unrhymed lines that have no set fixed metrical pattern or expectation
Quatrain poems are any four-line stanza with a rhyming pattern
Fog by Carl Sandburg
The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
