Transcript of "Death Be Not Proud" TPCASTT

John Donne Death, Be Not Proud Connotation The shift in the poem is line 14 because the speaker changed the subject from death kills to death will die.

From the Poem:
13 One short sleep past, we wake eternally
14 And death shall be no more;death, thou shalt die. Shifts Title Paraphrase Attitude Title Theme He doesn't fear death
A place for rest .
Short sleep. Death should not be feared for death is weak and dies in the afterlife. Hey Death, don't be full of pride, although some have called you powerful and dreadful, you are certainly not;
all of the people you think you took away
will never be dead, poor death, you can't kill me either.
An eternal rest and relaxation is all that you really are,
the state of death is enjoyable, and continues to be,
you may take away people we care about
but only to give them a good rest and ride to somewhere else
fate, chance, kings, and men will always control you,
your friends are poison, war, and sickness, and desperate men
many things can put men to sleep better than death can
after death, a short sleep, then comes eternal life
death will be no more, and will die. Author Poem
Death, Be not Proud Death, be not proud, though some have called 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.
5 From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
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,
10 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. John Donne (June 1572 – 31 March 1631) was an English poet, satirist, lawyer and a clergy in the Church of England. He is the founder of Metaphysical Poets. Metaphysical Poets meditate on love, death, God, and humans through use of conceits and wit. He went to Oxford University in United Kingdom and Cambridge University in England. From the Poem:
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
2 Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow
4 Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me. From the Poem:
5 From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
7 And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery. From the Poem:
13 One short sleep past, we wake eternally
14 And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die. Questions:

1) To whom is the speaker talking to?

2) What is the logic behind the speakers' attitude towards death? Yay!
Now you're ready for the poem! in a nutshell, that's "Death be not proud" The title "Death, Be Not Proud" sounds like the speaker is speaking directly to death as if death were a person. We assumed that the speaker will mock death at some point. John Donne, as a metaphysical poet, expressed his ideas in this sonnet through the use of a conceit, alliteration, personification, a iambic pentameter, and rhyme scheme. He also As we revisited the title of the poem, we discovered that the poem was published after Donne's death and the title named after the first four words of the poem. This title does provide the tone of the speaker of the poem, and sets the connotation of the sonnet. Alliteration: (3) For those whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow
(4) Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow
(5) And better than thy stroke; why swell'st thou then? Conceit Donne's conceit is a considering death, an obscure broad entity, to be condensed within a human form and personifies death with human qualities. (9)Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
(14) And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
