Which word would be more appropriate to use in the following example:


"My hands were tied with rope that led up to a pole and I did all I could to set myself free by slipping my hands beneath / underneath the rope."

Thanks.

    Putopower has already posted a thread concerning the subject I am interested in, so I would like to ask a question as well. Instead of "She pulled a dagger from beneath her cloak." can we say "The pulled a dagger from underneath her cloak"?

    "My hands were tied with rope that led up to a pole and I did all I could to set myself free by slipping my hands beneath / underneath the rope."



    Yet, it now has me wondering if beneath/underneath even sound correct in this context.

    Would "through" be a more appropriate word to use here? ".....slipping my hands through the rope" ?
