Explain “The Charge of the Light Brigade” Structure.

1 Answer

  1. The poem Charge of the Light Brigade is divided into six stanzas having 8,9,9,12,11,6 lines respectively. Many phrases are repeated a number of times in the poem to create poetic effect. e.g. in the first stanza, the phrase “Half a League” is repeated three times to bring the experience of a parade. Again the phrase “Forward the Light Brigade” is repeated and so on.

    In the poem, each line of the stanzas is in dimeter i.e. it has two stressed syllables and each stressed syllable is followed by 2 unstressed syllables.
    Read about the poetic devices used in the poem or the detailed summary.
