Top definition
the narrative genre which focuses on the plight of the urban disadvantaged (seen in Charles Dickens tales) mixed with intricately tragic plots and complex human characters (trademarked by William Shakespeare).
HBO's "The Wire" is the epitome of the Dick-speare genre, focusing on the plight of youths in Baltimore, and providing plot twists and tragic heroes which would move even the Bard.
