I see you have already been given an explanation of this -- could I 
suggest, as a start:
Neusner, Jacob. What is Midrash?. Philadelphia: Fortress, 1987.

and in greater depth ( and more pages -- 677 of them, in fact <g> ) 
Neusner's volume in the Anchor Bible Reference Library:
Neusner, Jacob. An Introduction to Rabbinic Literature.  New York: 
Doubleday, 1994.

You will find a review of the latter book
