Tone: The tone of the poem is very sad and depressing because the captain of the ship was very close to the prize, close to freedom, then he died.
Word Choice: The author's word choice shows that he believed that they had worked hard for their prize, and he thought it was a dangerous journey along the way.
Imagery: The author uses imagery by showing you how he feels during certain points in the story. He described what the captain looked like, which brought an image to your mind. You saw death.
This is what I thought of......
Come on, you're so close!
Style: The author of the poem is very realistic and wants you to see what he saw. He also uses lots of rhyme and repetition. He wants you to understand how he felt, which is pictured in the scene above.
Theme: The theme of the poem is defeat. The sailor feels like the captain could have made it, but instead he died right as they got to the prize, which was freedom and equality for the nation.
