Thanks MN! Yup, that's right. People often divide literature into poetry and prose. Prose is literature where language is used to explain and idea, whereas in poetry, language evokes it. Examples of prose writing might be a short story, news article or essay. There's a good definition of the difference between poetry and prose on this website, including a fun quote I hadn't heard before: http://www.diffen.com/difference/Poetry_vs_Prose "When you write in prose, you cook the rice. When you write poetry, you turn rice into rice wine. Cooked rice doesn't change its shape, but rice wine changes both in quality and shape. Cooked rice makes one full so one can live out one's life span . . . wine, on the other hand, makes one drunk, makes the sad happy, and the happy sad. Its effect is sublimely beyond explanation." - Wu Qiao

By "World Leader" I meant someone who is inspirational, revolutionary, has had great impact or is particularly accomplished in their field and has a global influence. Could be a head of state, a religious or cultural figure, a scientist, a great person from history, etc. Mondidipa's example of Malala Yousafzai above is a really good one!

Whoah! Great movie! Did you prefer the older version (directed by John Waters) or the newer one (with John Travolta)?
