What is the image that the poet uses repeatedly, over and over again, to express her joy at the Proclamation? Is it a dark cloud? Is it chains of captivity? What is it?
And I'll give you one example of a word that she uses that has a denoted meaning, but means something else by connotation The key that opens a cell door (now illuminated by the sunlight). Yes, the denotation is a key that fits a lock. The connotation is that the cell is slavery, and the Proclamation is the key that unlocks the confinement of humans enslaved. You can find many others in the poem.
