Genre

A genre is an expression or a classification in literature, film, music as well as art. For example, within the literature all texts can be assigned to one of the three genres (lyric, drama, epic). In order to classify and separate the individual works within these genres more precisely, they are divided into genres on the basis of individual characteristics and their artistic content. For example, the sonnet would be a genre of lyric poetry, and the novel would be a genre of epic, with the adventurous romance representing a subordinate genre of the novel. Such subspecies are referred to as subgenre. In terms of the film would be fantasy film, horror film, action film and thriller genres. The term is sometimes used very spongy, so the terms genre and (sub) genre are sometimes used synonymously.

term
The term is derived from the French noun genre, which can be translated with genus and derived from the Latin genus. We also use this word in relation to the grammatical gender of a word (see Genus). Accordingly, the translation of the concept already points to what is at stake: namely, the subdivision of a thing into different subforms and genera. It is striking why the terms genre and genre can not be completely separated.

Many genres can be applied in different areas or find a counterparty across the genre. For example, the crime scene in film, radio play and literature can be proved. Cross-genre genres tend to be similar to each other mainly because of their content, whereas genres that have specific characteristics within a genre usually only occur in this genre, such as the novella in the literature.

Overview of different genres
The following is an overview, which bundles numerous subspecies of well-known media. The overview is divided into the parts literature, film, music, theater as well as video games. It is most likely that this is not complete, even if we try to make the spectrum as comprehensive as possible. So if you are aware of a supplement, we would be glad to receive a message to complete this genre list.
