No Man Is An Island - Poem by John Donne

No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend's
Or of thine own were:
Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

    Or, as every fan of the Yes Minister series can't help hearing now: ...It tolls for THEE, Bernard! Not that this episode detracted from the sense of the thing.

    Looking it up because I wanted to remember it to friends involved in elder care and get it right. But not just now, maybe. Not sure they're in the mood. (Report) Reply

    Oh dear, oh dear. This website, which should be a reliable reference, lineates this famous passage as if John Donne were writing free verse several centuries ahead of his time. This is more than misleading. It's flat-out wrong. The passage is from one of his sermons, not his poetry. It isn't a poem at all. (Report) Reply

    Oh dear, oh dear. Sneering is bad, and reflects badly on the sneerer. It’s made very clear that this passage was written as prose - “lineated”, if you will; the fact that it’s cited as poetry indicates Donne’s awareness of the rhythms of English speech.
