6. Poets use imagery and words with different connotations and denotations. In a paragraph, define and
provide an example of imagery, connotation, and denotation. Then, explain how poets use these elements
to contribute to tone in a poem. Support your answer with evidence from “President Lincoln’s Declaration
of Emancipation, January 1, 1863.”

I got this much I just need it checked...

Connotation are the words, phrases, and lines that are meant to be taken figuratively like this line from the poem, "It shall light the distant years;"

Denotation are the words, phrases, and lines that can be taken literally, like this line from the poem, "...eyes now dim with sorrow"

Also I was hoping someone could tell me which line would be "Imagery", cause I'm not sure.

    I thought about Imagery and I think I got it Could this be checked....

    Connotation are the words, phrases, and lines that are meant to be taken figuratively like this line from the poem, "It shall light the distant years;"

    Denotation are the words, phrases, and lines that can be taken literally, like this line from the poem, "...eyes now dim with sorrow"

    Imagery uses vivid language to relate to the five senses so I believe this line from the poem relates, "Break refulgent on the sight."

    Ms. Sue could you help?

    I agree. Also, the second stanza also has imagery.

    Is this the poem?

    "President Lincoln's Declaration of Emancipation, January 1, 1863 bu Frances E. W. Harper

    It shall flash through coming ages,
    It shall light the distant years;
    And eyes now dim with sorrow
    Shall be brighter through their tears

    IT shall flush the mountain ranges,
    And the valleys shall grow bright;
    It shall bathe the hills in radiance,
    And crown their brows with light

    It shall flood with golden splendor
    All the huts of Caroline;
    And the sun-kissed brow of labor
    With lustre new shall shine.

    It shall gild the gloomy prison,
    Darkened by the nation's crime,
    Where the dumb and patient millions
    Wait the better-coming time.

    By the light that gilds their prison
    They shall see its mouldering key;
    And the bolts and bars shall vibrate
    With the triumphs of the free.

    Though the morning seemed to linger
    O'er the hill-tops far away,
    Now the shadows bear the promise
    Of the quickly coming day.

    Soon the mists and murky shadows
    Shall be fringed with crimson light,
    And the glorious dawn freedom
    Break refulgent on the sight.
