This fortnight let’s look at and try narrative poetry, both short and long.
You may have some ready in your collections.
This may help get you started.
“As the name suggests, narrative poems essentially tell a story. As poems were easier to commit to memory, narrative poetry has its origins in oral traditions. This form employs literary devices, often regular metre, to tell a story frequently in the voice of a narrator and/or the characters in the tale.
● Written to be read aloud
● Includes the usual elements of a story: characters, setting, conflict, dialogue, climax, resolution
● Employs literary devices such as simile, metaphor, figurative language etc
● Often rhymes, but not always”
