Differences between drama and poetic work?
June 08, 2008 1:40AM
Drama and poetry may not be contrasted as if they were two different things. Some dramatic works are also poetic works. The entire corpus of French Classical drama is in rhymed couplets. And of course, William Shakespeare, the greatest dramatist in the English language and perhaps in any language, wrote his plays entirely in verse, except for occasional, brief passages of prose.
