War in the poem The Charge of the Light Brigade - War in the poem The Charge of the Light Brigade “The Charge of the Light Brigade” is about battle and the death of soldiers, and the experience of war.

The first verse starts in the middle of the action as Cardigan the commander, gives the order to charge. “Forward the light brigade charge for the gun.” This gives a sense of the excitement of the galloping horses in the cavalry charge, and sweeps the reader along, Tennysons then uses noble sounding euphemisms like “into the valley of death” to describe the fate that awaits...   [tags: The Charge of the Light Brigade Poetry Essays] 644 words

Tennyson makes a point to emphasize the fact that the soldier trudged on without distress or discouragement, even after knowing that their commanders had made a grave mistake. He also focuses on the bravery and excellence in duty of the soldiers for obeying orders because they were “not to make reply...not to reason why.” This came with the eventual knowledge that more than 100 of them would eventually be attacked on all sides: “Into the jaws of Death / Into the mouth of hell/ Rode the six hundred.” Unlike other poems of the Victorian era, Tennyson’s “The Charge of the Light Brigade” dealt directly with a political issue with an emotional tone, which was an important development and so...   [tags: poem analysis] 1872 words
