Storyboard Description

On Being Brought from Africa to America analysis - Phillis Wheatley poem

Storyboard Text

  • RELIGION
  • ITALICS
  • Each line of the poem contains religious words to subtly convey the speaker’s tone, attitudes, or beliefs. The repetition clearly fixes religion as a central theme of the poem's major themes. She informs the reader how she was saved and the implications.
  • A recurring structure in the poem is Wheatley’s use of capitalized italics to emphasize words. She uses them for “Pagan”, “Savior”, “Christians”, “Negros”, and “Cain”. These words contribute to the poem’s strong contrasting imagery between light and darkness.
