Poetry Stories

Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.

Adventure Adventure
What is an Adventure story? Adventure novels involve an exciting and often risky task that the main character must successfully complete. Though the hero is often in dangerous situations, the character is more likely to use his/her wits and ingenuity to outsmart an enemy than resort to violence.
