11. Freneau writes the poem to encourage western
migration by describing it as a place where “Nature’s
wildest genius reigns” and where “mighty states”
shall “successive grow.” He conveys the idea that in
these new states mistakes made by civilians in the
past can be corrected.
OR His purpose points out the evil of slavery as
practiced in the east. Lines 49- 54 refer to the
regions that “raise our blush,” “Where still the
African complains,/ And mourns his yet unbroken
chains.”
12. Her first poem reflects the love of the abstract
ideal of freedom, echoing the sentiments of many
of the colonist around her. In the first stanza she
writes, “Freedom’s charms unfold/…She shines
supreme, while hated faction dies,” The second
stanza and other lines in the poem refer to the need
to abolish the tyranny of slavery, but she is
circumspect in expressing that sentiment.
Wheatley’s second poem echoes the sentiment
commonly heard to justify the slave trade, which is
that the Africans brought to America are better off
than those left in the “pagan” land because their
souls have been saved by the “good” Christians who
rescued them.
