Genre means a type of art, literature, or music characterized by a specific form, content, and style. For example, literature has four main genres: poetry, drama, fiction, and non-fiction. All of these genres have particular features and functions that distinguish them from one another. Hence, it is necessary on the part of readers to know. A genre system divides artworks according to depicted themes and objects. A classical hierarchy of genres was developed in European culture by the 17th century. It ranked genres in high – history painting and portrait, - and low – genre painting, landscape and still life. This hierarchy was based on the notion of man as the measure of all things.
