In this video lesson I discuss the different poetic genres and the theatre that developed during Medieval Times thanks to their relative economic and political stability.

It illustrates the characteristics of the Medieval Ballad, the Narrative Poem and, as far as the theatre is concerned, the Miracle Plays, the Pageant, the Morality Plays and, finally, the Interlude.

As I always recommend my students a video lesson in itself cannot replace altogether studying the material provided, it does help to learn the proper pronunciation and intonation, but reading and studying is also needed. The post with the full information can be found here.
