Read the line from the first stanza of “O Captain! My Captain!” The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, What does the prize represent? the Captain’s leadership survival shelter the Union’s victory

iosangel:

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done, The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won, The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring; But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills, For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding, For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here Captain! dear father! The arm beneath your head! It is some dream that on the deck, You’ve fallen cold and dead. My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still, My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will, The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done, From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won: Exult O shores, and ring O bells! But I with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.

iosangel:

I think its shelter or survival im not sure, they seem to be the same

JamesTDG:

I believe it could be surival, the mood feels like it is speaking of people glad to have survived.

iosangel:

Actually i found out its the Union’s victory because the story is a metaphor for the end of the civil war
