  • Lineation - Stopping and starting of each individual line, to create rhythm or tempo or pace. Can help convey the impact or meaningfulness of the poem.
  • Genre - A way to categorize works into groups. Protest could be considered a genre itself.
  • Theme - Central message or idea that the author wants to convey to the reader/listener. Protest poetry probably demonstrates the protest in its words/language/etc. Protest poetry IS thematic.
