light brigade

its amazing in the poem after realizing what had happened. all these people followed this one man who had made a bad decision, they all know he was wrong but they followed him into the vally of death to protect there families. they fought knowing that they would not come back.

Charge of the light brigade

My teacher played this in class. It took a while before we knew what had happened. It was depressing, so sad. That 600 men rode into the wrong area because someone had misinterpreted. Some had blundered was right. They were to stop their enemies from stealing from their miltia buildings. But all that was sent was a letter. And someone misinterpreted. And what if the soldiers had kids at home??? Someone in my class broke down crying. Now I listen to this every night before I go to bed. :) its so nice to hear. So patriotic.

the charge of the light brigade

having studied this poem two years ago and to then have to study it again in a level, as well as a collection of other masterpieces such as mariana, the lady of shalott, i would like to say this is a moving poem, and shows the evidence of genius as he wrote it within the space of 20 mins. after reading an artical in the paper, i have also heard the actual wax recording whcih sounds so bacabre, but in fact is an amazing experience

The Charge of the Light Brigade

What a great poem! When I read it again, I could not help but think of our troops in Iraq today. "(Is) there a man dismay'd? Not tho' the soldiers [must know!] Some one had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die..."

Except I think many of our troops must be dismayed!

I pray for our forces in Iraq, I pray they may soon be brought home safely. "They that had fought so well Come thro' the jaws of Death
[come] Back from the mouth of Hell, All that [is] left of them!"
