加拿大诗人和翻译安妮卡森（1950-）在一个古希腊神话中松散地以“红色自传”为基础，讲述了英雄与红翼怪物的战斗。卡森在自由诗中写作，将怪物重新塑造成一个喜怒无常的男孩，与爱情和性别认同相关的现代问题进行斗争。卡森的书籍作品属于一种被称为“诗歌小说”的类型跳跃类别。当故事通过层层意义时，红色自传在描述和对话，诗歌和散文之间转换。与古代的长篇叙事不同，诗歌中的小说不遵循既定的形式。俄罗斯作家亚历山大普希金（1799-1837）使用复杂的押韵方案和他的诗歌小说尤金奥涅金的非常规仪表。英国诗人伊丽莎白巴雷特勃朗宁（1806-1861）用空白诗句创作了极光雷。罗伯特·勃朗宁（Robert Browning，1812-1889）也用空白的诗句写作，他用不同叙述者所说的一系列独白来创作他的小说“圆环”和“书”。生动的语言和简单的故事使得长篇叙事诗成为年轻成人出版的流行趋势。杰奎琳伍德森获得国家图书奖的布朗女孩梦想描述了她作为一个在南方长大的非裔美国人的童年。其他最畅销的诗歌小说包括Kwame Alexander的The Crossover和Ellen Hopkins的“Crank Trilogy”。叙事是诗歌的三大类别之一：叙事，戏剧和抒情。每种诗歌都有鲜明的特征和功能。叙事诗强调情节，而抒情诗强调自我表达。戏剧性的诗歌，如莎士比亚的空白诗歌剧，是一个扩展的舞台制作，通常有许多不同的发言者。
The Canadian poet and translator Anne Carson (1950-) was loosely based on the “Red Autobiography” in an ancient Greek mythology, telling the battle between heroes and red-winged monsters. Carson writes in free poetry, recasting the monster into a moody boy, fighting modern issues related to love and gender identity. Carson’s book work belongs to a type of jump category called “poetry novel.” When the story passes through layers of meaning, the red autobiography transforms between description and dialogue, poetry and prose. Unlike ancient long narratives, novels in poetry do not follow established forms. The Russian writer Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) used a complicated rhyming scheme and his poetry novel Eugene Onegin’s unconventional instrumentation. The English poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) created the Aurora Ray with a blank verse. Robert Browning (1812-1889) also wrote in blank verses, and he used his series of monologues by different narrators to create his novels “rings” and “books.” Vivid language and simple stories make long narrative poetry a popular trend for young adult publishing. Jacqueline Woodson’s Brown Girl Dream of the National Book Award describes her childhood as an African-American who grew up in the South. Other best-selling poetry novels include The Crossover by Kwame Alexander and “Crank Trilogy” by Ellen Hopkins. Narrative is one of the three major categories of poetry: narrative, drama, and lyricism. Each poem has distinct features and functions. Narrative poems emphasize the plot, while lyric poems emphasize self-expression. Dramatic poetry, such as Shakespeare’s blank poetry, is an extended stage production that usually has many different speakers.
