FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

Queen Elizabeth I England.  17th century. John Donne,  poet , satirist, cleric of the Anglican Church, a contemporary of Shakespeare,  a thinker lightyears ahead of his time.  Poem:       NO MAN IS AN ISLAND

No man is an island

entire of itself

each is a piece of the continent

a part of the main

……………………………………

each man’s death diminishes me

for i am involved in mankind

therefore, send not to know

for whom the bell tolls

it tolls for thee.

John DONNE
