Okay... let's move to some linguistic and literary definitions and illustrations.

This is the name given to a word which is composed by a rearrangement of the letters of another word.

So 'dear' is an anagram of 'read' or 'dare'.  One word may also be an anagram of two or more: bathing --- bang, hit.

Some writers use anagrams as pen-names.

This is the collective name of those books which are included in the Septuagint (i.e. Greek) and Vugate (i.e. Latin) versions of the Old Testament, but were not originally written in Hebrew.

The corresponding adjective 'aprocryphal' was coined to mean suspect, unlikely to be authentic.

This is a technical name for a fable or parable with a moral, but since there are few fables which do not have a moral it is, to all intents and purposes, synonymous with the word 'fable'.

This is the name given to a device used by public speakers -- or to a habit associable with them -- in which they break off suddenly in the middle of a sentence, leaving it grammatically incomplete.

It is syntactically similar to Anacoluthon, which means the commencement of a new construction in a sentence before the existing one is completed.

It was Pope who called this 'the art of sinking in Poetry and used it as a form of Anticlimax for a satirical purpose.

But more often than not the term is used to mark a descent from the serious to the comic which the poet--- for bathos occurs more frequently in verse than in prose--- did not intend.

Dramatic Irony

Since this occurs in tragedy far more significantly than in comedy it is also known as tragic irony (that is, in a tragedy only).

It is the name given to words spoken innocently which a later event proves either to have been mistaken or to have prophesied that event.

Epic poetry-- or epopee-- celebrates in narrative some great theme of human life, of legend or of tradition.  

An Epic is necessarily long, its diction is restrained however imaginative, its style, its whole atmosphere, is dignified and heroic, and its meaning is essentially allegorical.

A Parody is a deliberately bathetic imitation of a serious original, in which the subject-matter of the original is mocked at, either merely for a literary joke or because in the opinion of the parodist it does not deserve the serious attention it has won in some quaters.

A Prologue is to play what a foreword or preface is to a book.  The prologue sets the scene and time, prepares the audience fo what is to come, and appeals for its sympathy.

An Epilogue is a similar direct address to the audience at the conclusion of a play.

Whether or not either a Prologue or Epilogue is necessary to a play or to anything else is a matter of opinion.

Rhetorical Question

This means the trick used by public speakers of asking a question to which no answer is expected.  

For example, when we say such things as "Why bother?" we do not expect any answer from our listener; because we are not really asking a question, but are saying "there's no point in bothering" in the form of a question merely as a conventional expression.

This differs from Parody in that it is never merely a literary joke played by a friend, nor does it mock the style of the original for fun.  Instead, it is the work of an enemy, an enemy either of a general human vice or weakness or of some individual or group of people.

The word is from Latin and literally means "speaking alone".  It is a technical term in drama and names any passage spoken by a character, not to some other character but apparently to himself.

It is not an exaggeration to say that the most important lines in many Elizabethan tragedies occur in soliloquies, for in them men like Macbeth and Hamlet reveal their secrets, their fears and hope, and in them Shakespeare wrote his finest poetry.

I love to do soliloquy...hem..cam muhasabah diri lak...reflection on my past deeds...

ps..the character, Hamlet did lots of soliloquy...

oh..one more thing..soliloquy is a bit different than monologue
because monologue...though you're talking alone...actually
there's another person or others around, yet invisible..you are
actually talking to the others around you...like the monologue..
EMILY OF EMERALD HILL...this is actually one of the style for
play to make it unique....so this play will usually done by one person
or actor....another famous one will be THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES...:bgrin:
