John Donne is an English Poet who lived in the 1500 and 1600’s. He wrote a number of sonnets called his holy sonnets and his 10th holy sonnet is one of his famous ones that is now entitled “Death Be Not Proud.” Donne, as a Christian, knows that, in God, he need not fear death. In the first four lines (quatrain) he mocks death, saying that though some have called it mighty and dreadful, it cannot kill those it thinks it can overthrow, such as Donne. In the second quatrain, Donne ironically praises death, noting that through it good men can finally rest from the suffering they face here on Earth. In the third quatrain, Donne chastises death again, claiming it is a slave to “fate, chance, kings and desperate men. How can death be proud when it only dwells within “poison, sickness and war?” In the final couplet of the sonnet, Donne delivers the final blow to death, turning death upside down. Knowing that, through God, we who believe in Him shall live on into eternity, Donne points out the truthful irony: once we die here on Earth, death no longer exists. Once we die, death is no more – death dies!
Here is the beautiful sonnet. Read it knowing that, through our faith in God, we need not fear death. If we believe that God is eternal and that, through him, we live eternally, we have nothing to fear.
