Incident Of The French Camp

Rating: 2.9
I.

You know, we French stormed Ratisbon:
A mile or so away,
On a little mound, Napoleon
Stood on our storming-day;
With neck out-thrust, you fancy how,
Legs wide, arms locked behind,
As if to balance the prone brow
Oppressive with its mind.

The stunning details reported by the rider to his emperor about conquering Rotisbon and his death in the war before falling before the emperor in the french camp, narrated by Robert Browning in the poem are very touching.

As a child, about 11years old, I loved this poem, it has a hero, a galloping rhythm, and was different, in an exciting way from what i as girlI was used to memorising.
