This work advances a theory of poetic forms in the six modes of poetry: lyric, narrative, dramatic, expository, descriptive, and argumentative. The theory is based on a combination of Aristotle's four-part method of describing classical tragedy with part of Joyce's aesthetic theory expressed in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.
