    Poets use various poetic devices in their pieces to express more meaning than the words do alone. Each poem is different in the way it uses these poetic devices and illustrates an idea. Alfred Lord Tennyson and Edgar Allen Poe are two great poets with very different styles of poetry. Despite using some of the same literary techniques, they each incorporate poetic devices to express meaning in their poems. Both Tennyson’s “Charge of the Light Brigade” and Poe’s “The Raven” use narrative, repetition, sound, and symbols to bring the readers into their stories. “Charge of the Light Brigade” is a narrative poem that tells the story of the Light Brigade of the British forces as they attack the Russian forces. One of the British leaders miscommunicates a message and, as a result, the Light Brigade charges into the mass of Russian forces without any backup or support. This tragic mistake results in the death of many members of the Light Brigade.

  • Socratic Dialogue: Definition Of Andreia

    interpreted as a means of launching the dialogue on its path, on which Socrates and other characters delve upon it.
