Images from Shutterstock.com Allusions Strength stoops unto the grave;
Worms feed on Hector brave; A Litany in Time of Plague Thomas Nashe AP Prompt Adieu, farewell, earth's bliss;
This world uncertain is;
Fond are life's lustful joys;
Death proves them all but toys;
None from his darts can fly;
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!

Rich men, trust not in wealth,
Gold cannot buy you health;
Physic himself must fade.
All things to end are made,
The plague full swift goes by;
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!

Beauty is but a flower
Which wrinkles will devour;
Brightness falls from the air;
Queens have died young and fair;
Dust hath closed Helen's eye.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!

Strength stoops unto the grave,
Worms feed on Hector brave;
Swords may not fight with fate,
Earth still holds open her gate.
"Come, come!" the bells do cry.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!

Wit with his wantonness
Tasteth death's bitterness;
Hell's executioner
Hath no ears for to hear
What vain art can reply.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us!

Haste, therefore, each degree,
To welcome destiny;
Heaven is our heritage,
Earth but a player's stage;
Mount we unto the sky.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us! Read poem Queens have died young and fair;
Dust hath closed Helen's eye; Moore speaks on the importance of the author's decision to use Helen and Hector as both were popular figures who died "before their time." Theme Inevitability of Death Acceptance of Death as a means to a higher spiritual end inconsequential nature of human constructs- beauty, strength, wealth Adieu, farewell, earth's bliss;
This world uncertain is;
Fond are life's lustful joys;
Death proves them all but toys;
None from his darts can fly;
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us! Carefully read the following poem by Thomas Nashe. Then, in a well-organized essay, analyze how certain poetic elements such as tone and structure contribute to the speaker’s conclusion(s) about life and death. Rhyme Scheme Strength stoops unto the grave, A

Lord, have mercy on us! E Diction/ Tone End Stopped Line Thesis The poem analyzes the various mortal amusements people employ to delay death, as well as the inability each has to influence the inescapable truth. Through his use of poetic elements, the speaker contemplates death’s disregard for status and beauty among other things; the eventual elation he achieves reflects his realization that death is a release rather than a damnation. Haste, therefore, each degree
To welcome destiny;
Heaven is our heritage*,
Earth but a player's stage;
Mount we unto the sky.
I am sick, I must die.
Lord, have mercy on us! Heaven is our heritage,
Earth but a player's stage.
