Publisher's Summary

"The Charge of The Light Brigade" - written in 1854 by one of the great representative figures of the Victorian age, Lord Alfred Tennyson - celebrates the heroism of a British cavalry unit mistakenly ordered to attack a vastly superior Russian stronghold amidst the Battle of Balaklava during the Crimean War (1853-1856), a military conflict between Russia and a coalition of Great Britain, France, the Kingdom of Sardinia, and the Ottoman Empire.

This is really bad can't understand the poem

What would have made The Charge of the Light Brigade better?

What a waste of money can't understand the reader music way too loud

What was most disappointing about Alfred Tennyson’s story?

Can't hear the reader

Would you be willing to try another one of K. Anderson Yancy’s performances?

Who knows couldn't tell what he was saying

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Charge of the Light Brigade?

The background music, way too loud

Any additional comments?

True it wasn't expensive but still a waste of money

why make such a mess of a simple yet dramatic poem? I was going to give it to my grandson now I may just erase it. the narrator has gone compleately over the top with reverb and unessesary and overbearing effects, again WHY? the poem is dramatic, read it with passion yes but don't, as in this case, obliterate the words with technical wizardry and for the first 5 minutes make the poem uninteligable, even to someone who has known it for several decades, just WHY?
