The Britannica Guide to Literary Elements: Poetry and Drama: Literary Terms and Concepts  (ISBN-10: 1615305394 | ISBN-13: 9781615305391)

Verse and drama have provided outlets for emotive expression and the creative impulse for centuries. Poignant, inspiring, and thought-provoking, plays and poems spoken or written in any language help reinterpret reality and evoke some of humanity's most profound truths. The terms culled in this volume describe many of the most potent elements of language—those that venture beyond the realm of prose and invoke the power of cadence, lyricism, and drama to recount all aspects of the human condition.
