Compare and Contrast Literary Text and Non-Literary Text
The audiences for the two literatures are not the same. Articles target the general public as their audience, because their publications appear in newspapers and magazines, whilst poems appeal to interested readers (Zacharakis et al, 2011). The poem told a story, described an object and situation, narrated an event and finally expresses feelings. Whatever the substance of the remarks and the ultimate message, poetry is characterised by linguistic elements that go beyond standard sentence structure. A poet can speak directly to an audience, much as a narrator in stories. Poetry is the most personal and indirect form of fictional expression. The next stage of the assignment will be to summarise the main structural features of a poem.
Poems, like articles have structures. Structure of a literature refers to how written expression is set out on the page. Poetry is restricted expression of the written word and the uses of structures provide the tools of poetry writing. Poetry structures have a collection of rhyming patterns, grammar and imagery. Poems have different structural features (shape) which can be used to classify poems. These features are simple and easy to distinguish, for example, the lines of poems are often much shorter than those of prose.
