A verse is part of a song although in your case I would presume it to mean part of a poem, like a stanza. A monologue is a the part of a text in which one of the characters gives the audience or reader an insight into their own character. For instance the famous To Be or Not To Be speech by Hamlet. In this part of the play Hamlet explores his own conflicted feelings in response to the situation he finds himself in. Another example of a dramatic monologue I think would be Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner, which is otherwise known as a epic poem because it goes on and on and on!

I have to write an essay based on this poem called 'Give' by Simon Armitage the question is:
How is the character in 'Give' create:
Here is the poem:
GiveSimon ArmitageOf all the public places, dearto make a scene, I’ve chosen here.Of all the doorways in the worldto choose to sleep, I’ve chosen yours.I’m on the street, under the stars.For coppers I can dance or sing.For silver-swallow swords, eat fire.For gold-escape from locks and chains.It’s not as if I’m holding outfor frankincense or myrrh, just change.You give me tea. That’s big of you.I’m on my knees. I beg of you.
