Explain how does the things the slave sees in his dream in the poem "The Slave's Dream" represent freedom? "The Slave's Dream" by...


Again, in the mist and shadow of sleep,
   He saw his Native Land.

Wide through the landscape of his dreams
   The lordly Niger flowed;
Beneath the palm-trees on the plain

Where do people go to be free from their jobs and stress? Out into nature, whether it be a tropical island or camping in the forest. These references to the landscape, the Niger River, the palm-trees and the plain give one the imagery of an oasis.

His bridle-reins were golden chains,
   And, with a martial clank,

I love the reference here to golden chains because only a king or wealthy man would have them, not a slave. And they clank with a martial sound, a reference to military. This guy has the ability to fight, not to be bound.

The forests, with their myriad tongues,
   Shouted of liberty;
And the Blast of the Desert cried aloud,
   With a voice so wild and free,
That he started in his sleep and smiled
   At their tempestuous glee.

Here you get direct references to freedom and liberty which result in happiness.

He did not feel the driver's whip,
   Nor the burning heat of day;

Finally, you have a direct escape from the punishing effects of slave life both human and circumstancially given.

Good luck.
