Question and answer
what are the major similarities and differences between the forms of drama, poetry, and the short story?
Short stories, poetry and drama are different types of literature but they share many of the same elements. [ Some of the many elements shared are figures of speech, conflict, foreshadowing. One of the same elements short stories, poetry and drama have is setting. ?The setting of a work of fiction establishes its historical, geographic, and physical context.? (pg. 251.) Setting can also be important in short stories, poetry and drama because setting ?encompasses a wide variety physical and cultural elements.?( pg.251.) An example of setting in poems, plays, or short stories written in the
Anglo-Saxon era or Renaissance without understanding the setting it is difficult to understand the cultural aspect poems, plays, or short story. The setting can add attitude to a short stories, poetry and drama, an example is how attitudes have changed towards women, and African Americans. Short stories, and plays have narrators, but poems have voice who is the poems speaker. The speaker is a persona that the poet creates. A narrator is ?a person who tells the story.? The narrator or voice can set the tone for the poem or play; if they are sarcastic then the play story or poem is sarcastic, but if they are serious then the tone is serious. The narrator is different than a voice because narrators can be unreliable or reliable. An unreliable narrator is ?someone who misrepresents or misinterprets events?.( pg.80) A reliable narrator is ?someone who accurately describes events.? (pg.80) The narrator or the voice can set the tone of the story or the poem. The tone ?conveys the speaker?s attitude toward his or her subject or audience.? (pg.709) For example if the narrator or the voice is serious the play, story, or the poem is serious, but is the narrator or the voice is joyful than the play, story, or the poem is joyful. ]
