A Fever Analysis

Author: poem of John Donne Type: poem Views: 51

Oh do not die, for I shall hate

    All women so, when thou art gone,

That thee I shall not celebrate,

    When I remember, thou wast one.

But yet thou canst not die, I know,

    To leave this world behind, is death,

But when thou from this world wilt go,

    The whole world vapors with thy breath.

Or if, when thou, the world's soul, goest,

    It stay, 'tis but thy carcass then,

The fairest woman, but thy ghost,

    But corrupt worms, the worthiest men.

O wrangling schools, that search what fire

    Shall burn this world, had none the wit

Unto this knowledge to aspire,

    That this her fever might be it?

And yet she cannot waste by this,

    Nor long bear this torturing wrong,

For much corruption needful is

    To fuel such a fever long.

These burning fits but meteors be,

    Whose matter in thee is soon spent.

Thy beauty, and all parts, which are thee,

    Are unchangeable firmament.

Yet 'twas of my mind, seizing thee,

    Though it in thee cannot persever.

For I had rather owner be,

Of thee one hour, than all else ever.

Donne's lady represents, first, all women, and second, the entire world.
A literal reading suggests that his lady is dying. The fever consumes her - its fire is 'fuelled' by some sort of innate 'corruption', perhaps their lust.
The fire that will 'burn this world', as searched for in the 'wrangling schools', alludes to the apocalyptic destruction of the universe. She is likened to this powerful destruction; her death, then, unbalances the world and results in a destructive outcome.
Nevertheless, the poet is grateful they had time together - however fleeting.

John Donne\'s Metaphysical approach to the said piece allows a broad range of to what the theme of the literary poem might pertain to. In his work, \"A Fever\" one interpretation suggests that once the affliction has consumed his lover, he is unable to pursue another such woman and in a sense has caught a \"fever\" himself. The fever meaning he is too ill to find another such love.

Personally i would say that this poem is about the true love that Donne shares with this women who has caught \"A fever\". \'Hate all women so\' As we see here John Donne is claiming that he can not love another women like he loved her!
Another interpretation would be to look at the poem as a message of belief from Donne didactically showing the reader that death shouldn\'t be feared as life is eternal. \'Canst not die\', metaphorically showing that his love will not die but live again! :)

First para: Dont die, for I will hate all women if you do. And if you do die, i will find it hard to celebrate your memory because you were the truest women.
2nd: But you can not die. For when you die it is death, but for the entire world, it is death too when you leave it.
3rd: On earth when you pass your body remains here, but your soul goes on. but if your ghost stays it can corrupt the worthiest of men.
4:The many educations bestowed among humanity are wasted if the the truth isnt taught. If people dont understand that it ends.
5: and yet she need not be in agony. Nor bear this torturing wrong. for preserving her life in this state is a selfish corruption in itself.
6:These pains in her will soon be gone, as meteors in the sky. the beauty, and the sickness is all part of her now, and has to be.
7: The mind trys to preserve it, trys to hold on, though it can not win. For i would rather be with you for one more hour, than be with all else for eternity.
