    Re: Literature

    All are types of literature, including prose; however, some prose (e.g., essays--Francis Bacon) tend not to be viewed as Literature.


    Literature
    The term has generally come to identify a collection of texts or work of art, which in Western culture are mainly prose, both fiction and non-fiction, drama and poetry. In much, if not all of the world, texts can be oral as well, and include such genres as epic, legend, myth, ballad, plus other forms of oral poetry, and the folktale.

    Re: Literature

    3-fiction

    I'd go for fiction not being a type if literature, since it's a sub-category of prose
    for another brief look go there

    Poetry and song were the earliest means used to preserve and convey literary traditions, and they have persisted to the present as forms of literature.
    Other forms—drama and narrative prose—appeared later.
    hope this helps.

    I think you are right. In my opinion prose is not a type of literature. Prose is a way of classifying types of writing: fiction, non-fiction, mystery, drama, etc. Prose is a general term for all these.

    I don't consider prose a category of literature.
