  11. A discursive poem tells a story. I don't think this poem tells a story.

    John Donne

    72. "Death be not proud, though some have called thee"

    DEATH be not proud, though some have called thee
    Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so,
    For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow,
    Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
    From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee, 5
    Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
    And soonest our best men with thee doe goe,
    Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie.
    Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men,
    And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell, 10
    And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well,
    And better then thy stroake; why swell'st thou then;
    One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally,
    And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

  12. what about reflective

  13. Yes, it's reflective.

  14. It's not a reflective poem. It's discursive. It's an argument against death being the end-all, and an argument in poetry is referred to as discursive. Changes my mind about wanting to use this site for homework help when the teachers/tutors/instructors don't even get it right, and it's a simple question for the most part. Scary.
