Kyle Colyn Professor De Smith Core 180 11-10-16 A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning This poem gets kicks off with a very strange metaphor of an old man who is dying. This is strange because the rest of the poem is about love and romance. A man dying at the beginning of a poem is the opposite of romance in most people’s minds so it makes you wonder why Donne decides to start the poem this way. As we continue on in the poem, Donne tells us that he wants the parting of his wife and himself to be like the old man’s death. There should be no noise or tear-floods at all because when an old man dies it is peaceful and quiet. Donne then does a complete 180 and begins to compare love to earthquakes! This kind of love makes a mess, and it has no meaning in the end.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
