    This poem has a myriad of poetic devices, some of which are as follows:

    1. Apostrophe: This can be seen when the persona directly addresses their motherland in the line ‘I claim for you my motherland!’.
    2. Alliteration: A couple of examples would be ‘Freedom from fear is the freedom’ and ‘Breaking your back, blinding your eyes to the beckoning call of the future. The ‘f’ and ‘b’ sounds are stressed here, respectively.
    3. Metaphor: In the lines ‘Whole sails are… winds/ And the helm… death’, destiny is called a ship.
