Types Of Narratives
What are the different kinds of narratives?
Please explain the different kinds.
A narrative is simply a mode of expression that tells a story. Typically (in writing especially) we say that a narrative must contain a conflict, rising action, climax, and resolution. (This is a basic plot line.) Depending on the length of the work, there can be one or multiple plot lines.
Within writing, the term narrative can apply to the following formats: fiction, non-fiction, speech, poetry, prose (short story)
Narrative is not simply designated as a writing term however. Narrative as a mode of expression can be applied in art, music, film, theater, dance, even video games.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that it tells a story.
