The title itself implies that there is a dramatic story to this. Elliot combined his genius of poetry with drama to create this famous work. Most of the characters speak in verse giving the play a vert lyrical flow as well as intense tone. The vivid imagery is filled with alliterations, staggered rhyme schemes and bright personification. This is all the stuff of great poetry embedded into a consistent plot.
