The novella a major form? Really? The novel a major form, when it's only been around for 300 years? Drama is both a major form and a genre? Prose and poetry are "techiques"? Whatever is this list based on? Certainly not on 2,500 years of literary theory. This needs a serious rethink on the basis of authoritative works on the subject. I suggest starting with the fundamental division between Lyric, Drama and Epic. --Pfold (talk) 22:16, 13 February 2014 (UTC)
