Fear death?—to feel the fog in my throat,

The mist in my face,

When the snows begin, and the blasts denote

I am nearing the place,

The power of the night, the press of the storm,

The post of the foe;

Where he stands, the Arch Fear in a visible form,

Yet the strong man must go:

For the journey is done and the summit attained,

And the barriers fall,

Though a battle's to fight ere the guerdon be gained,

The reward of it all.

I was ever a fighter, so—one fight more,

The best and the last!

I would hate that death bandaged my eyes, and forbore,

And bade me creep past.

No! let me taste the whole of it, fare like my peers

The heroes of old,

Bear the brunt, in a minute pay glad life's arrears

Of pain, darkness and cold.

For sudden the worst turns the best to the brave,

The black minute's at end,

And the elements' rage, the fiend-voices that rave,

Shall dwindle, shall blend,

Shall change, shall become first a peace out of pain,

Then a light, then thy breast,

O thou soul of my soul! I shall clasp thee again,

And with God be the rest!

Browning takes the stance of a romantic hero 'facing death' with courage and stark honesty. He uses war imagery and personification of death whilst blending in tones of positivity as he will be with his wife again. The reality of death is an abstract thought Browning toys with here- and as the poem goes on, he becomes more human and uncertain about what is in store for him when he dies.

I think here Browning is talking about a life of a SOLDIER who is going to fight with his foe and he is collecting courage by thinking worse about death that DEATH will come only one time so why should I become afraid from it. I would not face it by bonding my eyes but I will face it but I will face like old heroes (his seniors who died in the fight). Then I would go beyond Pain, Darkness and cold and I would meet my soul\'s soul (Good.

Line 14 compares death to a battle or a fight ending with “The best and the last”! The speaker refers to line 17-18 as the heroes of the old. When he says the word old it leaves me with the impression he wants to live a long life that’s why he calls these people heroes. Looking into lines 7-10 he could possibly be talking about the battle with sickness and heath, or the battle of old age. This line is about death and how the speaker is taking it on with courage instead of just trying to creep past it. He knows that death will win, but he still doesn\'t give up without a fight.

The poem by Robert Browning is about yes, death. But in a way that expresses that the poet is not afraid to die, because he will see his deceased wife once again.
