N is for Narrative Poetry


Narrative poetry tells a story. It is usually written in metered verse and is dramatic with objectives and diverse characters. It often focuses on the pros and cons of life. Such as the great epic poems listed below.



If you were lucky and received a good education, then like myself many of you have had the gift of reading these great epic poems. In this list, my favorite has to be Canterbury Tales. It is so raucous and bawdy to use the language of the day. If you haven’t read these please do. Share them with your children and then some of them you can watch as a movie. But read the book first. It’s always much better than the movie.
