Two important things I want to ask:

1) is prose the one that's laid out like a poem and blank verse the ones that's normally written in a straight line?

2) Is blank verse the one usually used by lower, comic characters or is it prose?

Answers Prose isn't always laid out like a poem, that mainly happens in Shakespeare's books. Prose do not rhyme. Blanks verses are poems that do not rhyming patterns. 2) Prose is mainly used by comic characters

Prose is normal write or speech where as blank tense is un- rhyming Iambic pentameter. Prose is generally used for comic characters but in Othello, Iago used prose towards Brabantio in Act 1 Scene 1. So it can be used in a form of an insult as well.

Hope that helps
