The Legacy, cont.
  • “We have no poet today…who can skip from the heights of scholastic philosophy to the heights of carnal passion, from the contemplation of divinity to the contemplation of a flea, from the rapt examination of self to an enumeration of the most remote external facts of science and make all, by his strangely passionate apprehension, into an intensely lyrical poetry.” – Aldous Huxley
death be not proud
Death Be Not Proud
  • Written as part of his “Holy Sonnets”
  • Employs metaphorical conceit throughout; personifies death
  • Mocking tone derides death and dismisses the fear that people attribute to it
  • Makes the point that death isn’t the horrible and all-powerful force people think it is
