This week in class, we’re reading "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" by Robert Browning.
"The Pied Piper of Hamelin" is a classic narrative poem about a man who is asked to rid a town of its rats. But when the greedy mayor won't pay, the Pied Piper takes revenge by luring the townpeople's children away.
"Does money buy happiness?" and "Is revenge ever justified?"
