Whereas a "form" defines the way a poem arranges sounds, rhythms, or its appearance on the page, "genre" is something like the poem's style. Many poetic genres have a long history, and new poems almost always seek to explore a new aspect of the traditional style and thus to redefine the genre in some way. The following list is a selection of the major genres of poetry. Epic Poetry: Characteristics, Elements, and Examples. An epic poem is an elaborate narrative about an important event. It contains a character of incredible stature and courage who performs superhuman deeds with valor in terrific battles or journeys, and these glorious deeds are of national significance.

  Virgil, The Aeneid. For his great epic about the events leading to the founding of Rome, a poem written to flatter Augustus (at least according to Alexander Pope), Virgil took a character from the Greek story of the Trojan War, Aeneas, and told his Homer’s Odysseus, Aeneas wanders the Mediterranean after the end of the war, having a passionate romance with Dido, Queen of Carthage. From A Poet’s Glossary The following additional definition of the term letter poem, epistle is reprinted from A Poet's Glossary by Edward Hirsch.. Samuel Daniel introduced the epistle into English in his Letter from Octavia to Marcus Antonius () and in Certain Epistles (–). Ben Jonson employed the Horatian mode in The Forest (), which was also taken up by John Dryden in his.

  Commonly referred to as an Old English epic poem, it consists of more than 3, lines, all of which use alliteration. Dating back to between the 8th and 11th centuries and set in Scandinavia, the poem likely was used to teach lessons to young warriors of the day, says Alexander M. Bruce, in the free online journal "The Heroic Age.".   And a short poem puts us in touch with poetry—a shot, a quick snack, an amuse bouche to amp up our poetic reading lives. So for your enjoyment, here’s a list of great short poems. But wait! What makes a short poem short? For my purposes here, there are super short poems (fewer than 10 lines) and short-ish poems (10–15 lines).
