The Charge of the Light Brigade

The Charge of the Light Brigade

by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(3) Base Camp

It takes a moment to figure out where we are when this poem starts, and what's going on. Once you've done that, though, the language is pretty clear and straightforward. Should make for an easy climb.
