Literary Lingo

It’s time for some Literary Lingo.

Today’s word is: Prologue

The opening speech or dialogue of a play, especially a classic Greek play, that usually gives the exposition necessary to follow the subsequent action. Today the term also refers to the introduction to any literary work. See also drama, exposition.
