11. Freneau writes the poem to encourage western migration by describing it as a place where “Nature’s wildest genius reigns” and where “mighty states” shall “successive grow.” He conveys the idea that in these new states mistakes made by civilians in the past can be corrected. OR His purpose points out the evil of slavery as practiced in the east.

12. Her first poem reflects the love of the abstract ideal of freedom, echoing the sentiments of many of the colonist around her. In the first stanza she writes, “Freedom’s charms unfold/…She shines supreme, while hated faction dies,” The second stanza and other lines in the poem refer to the need to abolish the tyranny of slavery, but she is circumspect in expressing that sentiment.
