to determine what the definition of a word is by its context, we can start by looking at the general tone of the sentence and then try to hone in on a specific meaning notice the words "painful, din, drudgery" and "pass his life" which suggests that servitude means something negative that lasts a long time notice the phrase "under the harness" where harness is something used to restrain an animal with that being said can you try writing a definition of servitude using your own words? try not to look at a dictionary unless you are very stumped
