So, have you ever heard of Narrative Poetry? It’s basically a poem that tells a story. But there’s a little more to it than that…
Narrative poetry is a form of poetry that tells a story, often making the voices of a narrator and characters as well; the entire story is usually written in metered verse. Narrative poems do not need rhyme. The poems that make up this genre may be short or long, and the story it relates to may be complex. It is normally dramatic, with objectives, diverse and meter. Narrative poems include epics, ballads, idylls, and lays.
Some narrative poetry takes the form of a novel in verse. An example of this is The Ring and the Book by Robert Browning. In the terms of narrative poetry, a romance is a narrative poem that tells a story of chivalry. Examples include the Romance of the Rose or Tennyson’s Idylls of the King. Although those examples use medieval and Arthurian materials, romances may also tell stories from classical mythology.
Shorter narrative poems are often similar in style to the short story. Sometimes, these short narratives are collected into interrelated groups, as with Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales. So sagas include both incidental poetry and the biographies of poets. An example is “The Cremation of Sam McGee” by Robert Service.
Narrative Poems are a form of poetry that tell stories. Narrative poems often use rhyme, meter, repetition and a captivating and dramatic story to capture the readers interest. These classic Narrative poems include such classics as The Raven By Edgar Allan Poe, Paul Revere’s Ride By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Casey At The Bat and the chilling tales of the Alaska gold rush by Robert W. Service.
