How are Prose, Poetry, and Alliteration different in Literature?

  • Prose is the ordinary form of spoken or written language, without rhythmic structure, as distinguished from poetry or verse. (as you read in a book)
  • Poetry is the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts.  (children’s nursery rhymes, The Night Before Christmas, The Raven)
  • Alliteration is a literary device. Literature Alliteration Examples can be found in both prose and poetry. It uses the beginning of neighboring words either with the same consonant sound or sound group as in wet and wild or twilight twinkles for the purpose of bringing rhythmic enjoyment and emphasizing the senses to form visual images and create mood.  (Little Boy Blue come blow your horn, the sheep’s in the meadow, the cow’s in the corn)
