    Narrative poetry tells a story usually with a narrator or a primary character, it can be formal or informal.  Dramatic poetry is poetry written to be spoken, usually written in a way that can be easily performed.

    Narrative poetry is written verse that involves some level of arc or plot - a chronological narration. Time passes in it.

    Dramatic poetry is primarily defined as verse that is spoken or sung out loud - a theatrical work.

    A straight-forward but clear response:

    Narrative Poetry = Narration. At this type of poetry, the poet  is telling a story to his or her readers.

    Dramatic Poetry = Drama. The verses or stanzas of this type of poetry could be acted or contain with dramatic monologues.

    I hope this would help!

    Narrative poetry is a poetry which tells a story, often making use of the voices of a narrator and characters as well.

    Dramatic poetry is any poetry that uses the discourse of the characters involved to tell a story or portray a situation.It is a form of writing that expresses emotional feelings.
