Narrative Poetry

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to blog. Today, and for the next few weeks, we're talking about the second Pillar of Genre. Let’s talk about Poetry. How do you define what Poetry even is?

This week, I want to go more specifically into the idea of legend as a genre, and give you some examples of the hallmarks that make up a legend.
