Poems, Drama, and Prose - By Kimberly Cain

00:0-1 Good morning , boys and girls . Today I'm going
00:03 to tell you the difference between poems , plays or
00:08 dramas and pose their narratives . So the first thing
00:15 that we're going to look at today is a poem
00:19 called The Tiger by William Blake . Tiger Tiger burning
00:24 bright in the forests of the night . What immortal
00:29 hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry ? Now
00:33 the basis of poems is stanzas . All of the
00:38 lines in a poem represent different stanzas of the poem
00:44 Tiger Tiger Burning Bright is one stanza . There is
00:49 also imagery usually placed within poems . So can you
00:55 picture a tiger burning bright in the middle of the
00:59 night ? It'd be like finding a tiger in the
01:01 middle of the forest , and poems are usually used
01:04 to represent images . Now the second thing that we're
01:08 going to look at is a short story . Short
01:13 stories usually have a setting characters and some dialogue within
01:19 the story itself . So today we're going to read
01:24 a little bit of a town mouse in a country
01:26 mouse . A town mouse and a country mouse were
01:29 friends . The country mouse one day invited his friend
01:32 to come and see him at his home in the
01:34 fields . The town mouse came , and they sat
01:36 down to a dinner of barley corns and routes ,
01:39 the latter of which had a distinctly earthly flavor .
01:43 This part is the setting they're telling you where the
01:47 story is taking place . As well as introducing two
01:50 of the characters . You can assume that these two
01:53 characters are going to be the main point of the
01:57 story . The flavor was not much the taste of
02:01 the guest , and presently he broke out with my
02:05 poor dear friend . You live here no better than
02:08 ants . Now you should just see how I fare
02:11 . My larder is a regular horn of plenty .
02:13 You must come and stay with me , and I
02:15 promise you shall live on the fat of the land
02:18 . The quotation marks have dialogue in between them .
02:23 Dialogue is when a character in a short story is
02:26 speaking . Poems usually don't have dialogue . That's a
02:31 really big difference between these two . Both of them
02:33 can contain imagery , but the main point of a
02:37 poem is to get the image across . Where is
02:40 the main point of the story ? Usually has a
02:41 moral at the bottom . You'll see that if you
02:44 were to read the rest of the story . The
02:46 moral that you would get its safety is the first
02:48 importance . The second thing we're going to look at
02:52 today is a play . The play that we're looking
02:56 at is called Andrew Pools and the Lion by Peter
02:59 Bond . Now , the first part of a play
03:03 usually has the different characters set out . This is
03:06 so you know how many participants will need when you
03:09 go to actually act out . The play stories and
03:13 poems usually aren't acted out , but plays that is
03:17 the main point . So after you have all of
03:21 your characters , you can move on to the actual
03:24 play . Ah , place set up so that you
03:29 have a stage layout . So if you look at
03:33 this one , it says outside a hut belonging to
03:36 an trickles and his mother intern Arita , right ,
03:38 he remains on stage throughout . So this shows you
03:42 that the play will be taking place outside a hut
03:47 that belongs to in dribbles . So the stage would
03:50 look like it was outside of a hut . And
03:54 then you also have stage directions when it says internationaler
03:58 right ? This means the narrator at that point would
04:01 enter the stage to the right , and with him
04:04 remaining on stage throughout , it means that he just
04:06 doesn't change if you look at the name . Narrator
04:11 , you see that there are Cohen's and then some
04:14 speech plays . They're usually set out to where you
04:17 have the name of a character that's talking . And
04:19 then what they say . For instance , the narrator
04:22 here , since back in the days of the Emperor
04:24 Nero , there lived a rather unlikely hero , a
04:27 man who loved the birds and bees , a man
04:29 whose name was in draw , please and delicate .
04:32 He's lived with his mom , helping her on their
04:34 tiny farm , and it's his mother bustles and stage
04:37 left holding a pitchfork or other farm implement . Therefore
04:41 , at that point in time , the mother would
04:43 enter through the stage left plays always have your dialogue
04:50 or the character , then your dialogue and then stage
04:53 directions , if necessary , someplace will have more stage
04:56 directions and others . Some of them are meant to
04:59 be put up by the director . It just depends
05:03 . So for a quick review , poems usually show
05:09 imagery . Stories typically have a moral , and dramas
05:15 are set up to be acted out Can you find
05:20 poems , short stories or plays toe ? Look at
05:24 and act out . Would you be ableto tell the
05:27 difference yet ? So the questions you should ask yourself
05:30 five boys and girls .
