Read the following poem and answer the question that follows. 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! This arm beneath your head; It is some dream that on the deck, You've fallen cold and dead. What connotation does the poet use for the words in bold? Celebration Fury Romance Misery

    Which words are in bold but I know it's between misery and celebration because in the beginning of the poem, they are celebrating the war being over..until they realize the captain has died too.

    Wait, would it not be Celebration? using the context, everyone being joyful?

    Connotation is what you associate with a word, like with the word party you might think of birthdays or celebration. So with wreaths and bouquets, do you think of celebration or misery?

    I guess, Misery. sound more appropriate with that sentence.

    Misery is sadness and it says people are cheering for him with flowers and wreaths so I think that would be happiness.

    I'm still kind of confused, I think it could go either way, with the turn in the end.

    Connotation- words you associate with something Denotation- the definition of a word
