Welcome to the Althea's Poetry Journey WikiaEdit
Welcome to my wikia on poetry, namely ballads and their characteristics. It is important that students are exposed to the different types of poems and what distinguishes one type from the other.This is a way of assisting students in their quest to write their own poems.
Describe your topicEdit
The topic that I will be focusing on is Types of Poems: Ballads. There are generally two types of ballads- traditional/folk and literary/contemporary. They share similarities and a few differences. The characteristics of Ballads include- rhyme, rhythm, chorus/refrain, repetition, story elements (plot, characters and setting), simple language and use of dialogue. By accessing this wikia, it is my hope that readers will become more enlightened about the different types of poems and develop an appreciation for all types of poems.
