CHAPTER II
THEORY

II.1 Short Story

One of the most resilient forms of entertainment is the short story. Historically always
been a popular mode of amusement. It provides a distraction that can enjoyed quickly. A short
story is like a special treat; a chocolate bonbon, a lemon bar, or tuna roll to be consumed in
one delightful scrumptious session. Unlike longer fiction a short story is a self-contained bit
of excitement that the reader digests with secret satisfaction in a brief interlude. It has
evolved over the centuries from the narrative tale spun around night campfires to the written
story contained within the covers of a slick magazine. Depending on the current pre-dominate
media of information dissemination the short story form is morphed to its style remaining an
extremely popular method of entertaining in a wide variety of presentation forms; written,
oral or visual. Today the short story is still a dynamic active ingredient of our increasing
blend of entertainment choices. Although the growing tendency to passively view short
video programs that pre-dominate peoples current entertainment habits reduced the time
spent reading the value of reading short stories endures. When you engage anyone introduce
the topic of short stories, they will all have a favorite and be happy to retell it to you.
Unfortunately, more and more adults hark back to a childrens story their parents read to them
or that they read to their children since they are not actively engaged readers. There is always
a core of the reading public that sustains the value of a short story, which composes a
vigorous reading audience. Material presented on television is plagued by commercial
interruptions that make it extremely difficult to deliver the punch and pizza that a short story
read alone, late at night; provides in the comfort of a quiet dark house devoid of all
interruptions, electronic noise or distractions. One of the keys to the intense impact of a short
story is that it is read without interruptions. It evolves within your mind. It can therefore
capture the emotions desired to increase the readers intensity and pleasure.

Short stories are required to follow all the rules of sound fiction writing but are
constricted in terms of scope and number of characters that may be included. They must race
from segment to segment, perhaps skipping one altogether and conclude in a convincing
crescendo. While the novelist may wander leisurely about while developing their themes,
locations and characters, a short story writer has to strip their tale, honing it into a sharp
parsimonious package. That package may even compress or accelerate to catch the critical
story elements pulling the reader along in a fresh and vivid fabrication. While a short story is
always direct, swift and exhilarating it must be fulfilling.

2
Why have short stories always sustained us? They provide a rapid medium
of entertainment and they do not require a long attention span nor strain our memory.
Someone can hear or read a short story in a brief period and feel very entertained, satisfied
and enlightened. The pulp fiction titillating short story read behind closed doors in some
sense may be considered tainted or trashy. However, an engaging short story is an excellent
form of entertainment no matter where it may be published

II.2 Poem or Poetry

Poetry is a literary work in verse writing of high quality, great beauty, a piece of art,
with emotional sincerity or intensity, a graceful expression showing imagination and deep
feeling with beautiful and elegant quality. It is a profound insight that enables a poet to
idealize reality and to see the things or situations in a particular way, to express his feelings of
his own accord and to represent them in such a way as to delight the readers.

It is the quality of a great poetry through which the creeds and the system of human
values are discussed that a reader may ultimately be enlightened and rejoiced. Poetry is also a
good source of freeing somebody from ignorance, misdeeds or evils while it inspires and
encourages us; instills in us noble thoughts by dealing very much with the ways we live in.

The art or the skill of writing poems in a particular language or form is a natural gift
or it may be acquired ability by which a poet deals with the reality of life. It is through the art
of poetry that the universal facts are represented. The way a poet idealizes reality and
represents the things accordingly rouses our admiration to the art of poetry. Thus, adoption of
a narrow view about poetry that it gives us not reality is out of place when one reads poetry
and gets inspired and delighted. And the notion that poetry employs artificial language is also
incorrect when it is considered on the grounds of diction and poetic beauty and its excellence
through which it has since long inspired the readers. Hence, one should turn to poetry to
interpret life and to console himself that the poetry relates to our personal life.

There are a lot of poems of great poets available to read and interpret what they have
tried to convey. The message of poems about life and the state of affairs may be understood
and are to be applied in our personal life. In this way, poetry teaches us the lessons about how
to live life providing the meaning of life.

In whatever form or a language the poetry is written, poetry is after all poetry with an
objective of consoling, encompassing a great power and appeal to delight the reader while
heightening an awareness of various situations and discussing the aspects of life. This leads
us to understand and interpret what has been written, with what objective so that the purpose
of a poem or specific verses may be served well
