What is death be not proud about?
'Death be not proud' is a poem by John Donne, poet and appointed dean of St Paul's cathedral in London in 1621. He was a pretty amazing man, managing to be taken seriously as a clergyman, member of parliament and poet. There is a stunning portrait of him in the national Portrait Gallery in London with a wicked glint in his eye.
Death be not proud is one of his later poems concerning God and his vision of Him. It discusses how, if you follow God and allow God into your life and the world then Death means nothing and loses his power over man. The final line, 'Death thou shalt die' is a marvellous example of Donne's ability to twist the mundane and make it extraordinary. This poem has as much power and depth as his earlier love poetry which is as witty and clever. The Flea is the most unexpected subject matter and bizarre way to convince a lady to sleep with him. All strange stuff from a clergyman!

Death be not proud is one of John Donne's Terrible Sonnets and is a hybrid form between Shakespearean and Petrarchan (as all the Terrible Sonnets are). Death be not proud has the characteristic ABBA ABBA octave of a Petrarchan sonnet, but there is no clear volta between octave and sestet (nor, to be fair, is there the natural run-on you would expect in a Shakespearean sonnet). Formally Death be not proud closes with a riming… Read More

"Death be not proud" is not a line to be found in the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare (1564-1616). Specifically, the line instead is drawn from Holy Sonnet X by John Donne (1572-1631). But the line does have applicability to the play. Macbeth kills his sovereign in order to become king, but ends up being killed and beheaded. It is not at all an enviable death.

That would be assuming that Shakespeare could see into the future - which he could not.

There is no way he could have known if it would be or not.
