What are the genres of books?

Before answering the question of what genres of books there are, it should be clarified that the expression �which genres of books� is not quite true. Correct to say: "genres of literature." Some literary critics, however, by literary genres mean literary genera, such as drama, lyricism, epic. But most experts in the field of literature are still inclined to believe that literary genres mean literary types � a story, a novel, a novel, and so on. So, we will try and we make our list of genres of books.

The epic assumes an objective depiction of events. And the genres of the epic, or literary types, as they are also called, are epic, epic, novel, fairy tale, poem, story, story, anecdote, fable, essay. This, perhaps, is the most popular genres of books, and more specifically, literary genres.

They correspond to such literary genres as an epigram, epithalamus, epitaph, eclogue, idyll, song, romance, epistle, thought, elegy, anthem, dithyramb, madrigal, ode, canzone.

Drama genres

Events in drama are characterized by action, conflict, which, the only one, and generates development. Types of drama - actually drama, tragedy, comedy.

Principles of division into genres

The principles of division into literary types in the epic correspond to the importance and nature of the events depicted. Thus, the subject of the image of the epic can only be significant for all events, and, say, a story is just a separate episode. The story is a larger form than a story, but less large than a novel. The essay also differs in that it describes only real events. In the lyrics, the basis of the division into genres are the features of the expression of feelings. Here, for example, a hymn is a celebration, an elegy is sadness and so on. In the drama, the main and decisive role is played by the character of the relationship to the portrayed. Tragedy is the sublimity of actions crowned with a fateful finale. In the comedy, the main point is ridicule, sometimes ugly phenomena of reality.
