would/will

Postby Georgiev » Sun Dec 29, 2013 11:29 pm

hello,everyone
Guys,could you help me understand the difference in usage of would and will in a definite sententece ?
Example:
He knew his mind WOULD never again be free to romp like the mind of God?

Why should we use WOULD there?why not will?
