Literature is classified by genre (type or kind). Although critics disagree on how to define and label different genres, the three basic forms of literature are prose, drama, and poetry. Most works we read as literature are imaginative (fictional), but some nonimaginative (nonfictional) works are read as literature as well. Nonfiction prose includes history, biography, autobiography, religious and philosophical writing, literary criticism, political tracts, travel literature, and essays on many other subjects. Prose fiction has been divided, since the origins of the modern novel in the eighteenth century, into the novel , the novella or novelette (a story of intermediate length), and the short story . Predecessors of these genres include fables, parables, and tales of various kinds (including folk tales, fabliaux, and fairy tales).

Alike distinct from verse that is quantitative (measuring duration, as in classical Greek and Latin), accentual (counting only beats, as in Old English), and syllabic (counting only syllables, as in certain: 20th-cy. experiments), accentual-syllabic verse is based on recurrent units ( feet ) that combine slacks and stresses in fixed sequence.
