Poetry is divided into three types. Those types include lyrical, dramatic, and narrative. Out of all of them, narrative poems are the most common and popular. This is because they are poems that tell a story through having a plot. Narrative poems can be versatile in their length, as they can be short or long.

They can also be complex or simple. Every part of the narrative poem is used to tell a story, which includes the setting, the rhythm, the rhyme scheme, and the characters. These types of poems focus more on emotion and storytelling than rhyming words together.

Narrative poems have some common characteristics that help in achieving its purpose of telling a story. The plot, characters, setting and rhythm all help achieve a narrative's purpose.Firstly, narrative stories are written in such a way that there is less rhyming factor and greater emotions. Secondly, they happen to be longer and often contain more than one character. The voice of the narrator also changes with respect to the character in the story.

This creates the effect of a story in the listener’s mind. Furthermore, narrative poems are normally dramatic and far more complex as compared to regular poems. These traits together allow a narrative poem to have a story-like effect which the reader can experience.
