Personal response to Death, Be not proud

This poem, Death, Be not proud, gave me a chance to look back on my thoughts about death. John Donne, the writer of this piece, did not fear death. Through out the whole poem, his attitude was very bellicose. He tried to deny death and considered it as a long rest and sleep. He came up with many point which proves that death isn’t a mighty thing. For one, he said death is a slave of fate, chance, kings and desperate men;

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

This is another example of being bellicose to death. This is a religious poem, so I can conclude that he does not fear death because he believe in his god and believe he can overcome death with his strong religious belief.
