Most prose is non-literary, for example scholarly and scientific books, papers and articles. Guidebooks, manuals, laws and most letters are also non-literary Prose is ordinary language that people use in writing such as poetry, stories, editorials, books, etc. The word prose is derived from the Latin word 'prosa' meaning straightforward. Prose comes in two types of text - narrative and expository. Narrative text is defined as "something that is narrated such as a story. Expository text is nonfiction reading material such as Description, Analysis, Classification etc. Translation of Poems When a poem, especially an epic poem such as the Iliad, is translated from one language into another, the poem is often converted into prose. to poetic measures and is usually grouped into paragraphs. Prose lacks a specific rhythm or the rhymes that can be found in poetry. Poetry aims to convey ideas and emotional experiences through the use of meter, rhyme, imagery in a carefully constructed metrical structure based on rhythmic patterns. What is Prose Poetry? Prose poetry combines the characteristics of poetry with the apparent appearance of prose containing traces of metrical structure or verse. Prose poetry deliberately breaks some of the normal rules of prose to create heightened imagery or emotional effect. What is Free Verse? Free verse is a form of poetry which uses fewer rules and limitations using either rhymed or unrhymed lines that have no set fixed metrical pattern. The early 20th-century poets were the first to write what they called "free verse" which allowed them to break from the formula and rigidity of traditional poetry.

ANS 6: Rhetoric is a study of useful arguments. I find the study interesting. It was oncepart of the very basis of education and along with reading and writing it was the "3ed R." Laterthis was replaced with "arithmetic" and all 3Rs became absorbed under the notion of effectivecommunication. (However, I think that there is value to the separation and overlapping study.)Today some of the study of rhetoric may still be found in the areas of marketing and advertising.We are bombarded with this constantly but our education too often has not given us the tools tounderstand the rhetoric involved.Each of these names suggests something of where the company is putting its efforts.
