Do you agree with the division of literature into two parts: form and content?

In my point, literature consist of form and content. Form is the framework or the structure of a literary work. Poem and sonnet are the two forms of literature with different styles. And in China the form of poems is also divided into five-character quatrain, seven-character octave and so on. They carry the different words in every line. Content is also the indispensable element in literature. Content consists of many aspects, such as time, place, character, things, circumstance, feelings and so on. Form and content in literary works exist simultaneously. Contents are always implied in forms of literary work and contents can be expressed by the actual forms.
