the slaves dream

while in the virgin islands recently and seeing the remains of sugar
factories, and learning that they were operated by slaves, reminded me of
this poem that I learned at priamery school in Ireland over 60 years ago.
Reading it again brings tears. SJS

I was introduced to this poem by my primary teacher at Eastern School in
Broughty Ferry, Scotland, almost 60 years ago. For me it has lost none of
its sadness and beauty.

Americans

the analysis of this poem is the problem with slavery in the 1800s. the
slave 'sleeping' was just and illusion of life, it sounds more like he past
into a coma before he died, i've read this poem quite alot and i still
don't get the full meaning of it, if anybody could try to explain the rest
of the poem to me I would be very greatful.
