I'm curious has anyone here used poetry to tell a story? One project I've wanted to do for a while is to tell a whole story through poetry not like Shakespeare and his plays but through free-verse and other styles of poetry. I have two poems currently one from each semester of poetry I took for my creative writing minor the first one describes a girl and her family during the Victorian times moving back to the home she was born in and how she ends to the garden. This garden is her pride and joy and she's hesitant about leaving it for the man she is supposed to marry. The second poem is about her visiting said man and being ignored while on her visit, he lives in a busy part of town with barely any land so my unnamed character has no means to garden and she eventually calls of their wedding to return to her garden. Lately I've been uninspired to keep this story going (I do plan on returning to it) could this idea be successful? Would you read a story told through narrative poetry?
