I beg you Hamlet, as a man who has attempted to avenge a death, calm down and rethink your decisions, otherwise the outcome may be severely detrimental. Impulse is yet another one of man’s flaws, as we perform our worst decisions when we are fueled by rage. We have both killed innocent men when we were unstable with anger. I ended up slaying my father to his death, angry at the road blockage his caravan created. However, you and I depicted no remorse over the slaughter of innocent people.

The first poem, ‘The Charge of the Light Brigade’ by Alfred Tennyson was based on a newspaper article he read in the Times Newspaper on November 14th, 1854.

Macbeth would not have lost it all if Lady MacBeth wouldn't of pushed him and taunted him, MacBeth wanted to become king but was unsure about murdering Duncan.

He declared, “I fancy I shall manage this so well in secret that he will repent of Brunhild’s weeping. I declare that I shall always be his enemy!” (Hatto 118) Hagen was pushed down a path towards certain death because of his jealousy and hatred of Siegfried.

In stanza one we are talking about the brutal death that the solider faced and how we as the people are impacted by it. We are reading about how soldiers are being put in the battlefield and how the only noise they can hear is the sounds of guns.
