Holy Sonnet X: Death Be Not Proud Analysis



Author: poem of John Donne Type: poem Views: 76

Death, be not proud, though some have callèd thee

Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;

For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow

Die not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

From rest and sleep, which yet thy pictures be,

Much pleasure, then from thee much more, must low

And soonest our best men with thee do go,

Rest of their bones and soul's delivery.

Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings and desperate men

And dost with poison, war and sickness dwell,

And poppy or charms can make us sleep as well

And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then ?

One short sleep past, we wake eternally,

And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

This is a sonnet written in Petrarchian iambic pentameter with an "abba abba cddc ff" rhyme pattern, 14 lines, 1 stanza. There is allusion in the poem when Donne writes about Death (the Reaper.)
