Death, be not proud

Write an essay in which you analyze the speaker’s reasons as to why death should not be proud by discussing the figures of speech present within the poem. How do personification, alliteration, and apostrophe contribute to the poem’s tone?Death, be not proudDeath, be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrowDie not, poor death, nor yet canst thou kill me.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. 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 passed, we wake eternally.And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.Source: John Donne, “Death, be not proud,” Perrine’s Literature, Structure, Sound, and Sense, 9th ed., eds. Thomas R. Arp and Greg Johnson (Thomson/Wadsworth, 2006), 892.
