Overview[ edit ] A narrative is a telling of some true or fictitious event or connected sequence of events, recounted by a narrator to a narratee although there may be more than one of each. Narratives are to be distinguished from descriptions of qualities, states, or situations, and also from dramatic enactments of events although a dramatic work may also include narrative speeches. A narrative consists of a set of events the story recounted in a process of narration or discoursein which the events are selected and arranged in a particular order the plot.
Drama, or playwriting, and poetry are some of the oldest types of literature known and both have a vital oral component: Therefore these forms are much concerned with the actual sound of words, the pace, the rhythm, and so on.
There are both significant differences and similarities between these three types of literature. Poetry can also sometimes tell a story, in which case it is known as narrative poetry; two important forms of narrative poetry are the epic common to ancient literature all over the world and the ballad.
More often, however, poetry does not tell a story but rather concentrates on evoking feelings and images. Poetry, of all literary forms is generally the most concerned with how language works in order to achieve a certain effect, and to this end liberally employs such literary devices as alliteration, onomatopoeia, word-play, metaphor, and so on.
Of course, such devices are also used in other literary forms, but they are generally the most closely associated with poetry.
To turn to the short story, it should first of all be noted that in the broadest sense the term 'short story' can include any type of brief narrative such as the anecdote and the fable, both of which have long histories and probably were spoken aloud originally, akin to poetry and drama.
However the short story as a distinct art form developed much later than poetry and drama, and generally lacks the oral aspect of these earlier forms.
Aside from this, it has some traits in common with both: However, some short stories concentrate more on feelings, thoughts, impressions, and images than on actual plot or dialogue; in this way the short story can resemble a lot of poetry.The Spiders Part II: The Diamond Ship The Spiders Part II: The Diamond Ship () is a much less successful film than Part I.
