Brief Definition

A dramatic verse is a type of poem that is used to tell a story. Many stories were told with the use of dramatic verse most of Shakespeare's work, for example. A dramatic verse poem does not have a specified structure. It is simply a verse with a dramatic flair and tale to tell. It was once the preferred way to tell a dramatic story and is still widely enjoyed.

A tragedy is generally the genre of the poem that a dramatic verse is used to portray. This is due to the serious nature that a tragedy demands. Originally, a dramatic verse was used to tell such tragic and dramatic tales because prose of a verse is easier to memorize and retain. This allowed people to share the stories that they enjoy and wish to use to entertain an audience with relative ease. A dramatic verse will more likely than not consist of extraordinary feats, myths, and more. 

Dramatic Verse Poem Example

Indian Ink

“Indian Accent”

Hear the whispers inside

Chanting from long ago
Echoes come and go
Losing time in a soft eternal glow

A beautiful and delicate autumn mountain scene
Dry blue eyes enchanting melodies!
Voices fall from the sky;    -Rising hymns release 
-ancient demons that   CLING to the soul

Darkness dwells under - gentle moonlight
Ancestors of the Spirit World!
Weaving Native smoke into the barren air
Indian spirits haunt the muddy Earth---
Moccasin makers rise from underneath;    While
  guardians of dream catchers - print the Universe
Smooth thread from the outer world; 
Arrowheads,   Ivory gems,   feathers, and illusions
I stumble upon a florid kiss.......   My veins;
Run Cold, like ice through a desert night.

Winds of enchanted drums - cry out for rain
Hollow chimes mesmerize,  my ties,  my eyes
An ancient rage begins to flare --- MADNESS! 
- takes place among the sanity of  who   I am
The spear of the perfumed buffalo scrapes my skin
I remove the veil that covers my eyes
The hands that cover my ears
Drying the scalp that bleeds on my face


Raven silk braids and feathers on my hair
Dancing in a horrid hallucination of Peyote,
Waking up from the “American Dream.”
Holding out my arms, I am free, I can fly.
