Donne does not want the readers to fear death as it is only a consequence of illness, war, accidents, and suicide. Donne’s speaker states that death does not cause someone to die; rather “poison, war, and sickness” (Donne 10) causes death. The message portrayed in “Death be not Proud” is that physical death is not final, and therefore it is not powerful and should not be feared. This contradicts the implications of death’s power in “Ozymandias.” Instead, Donne personifies death in order to show its lack of power: “Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men” (Donne 9). The speaker is referring to death as slave; he wants death to feel powerless since it does not take over nor decide when somebody dies.

William Faulkner wrote the short story “Barn Burning.” Not to mention, the story starts off in a courtroom because Abner Snopes burned down the property of Mr. Harris. Mr. Harris is landowner, who is left with a burned barn and no legal option.
Proctor’s death was meant to preserve his name, but he ultimately lost his life. Proctor died as a martyr for others to understand the value of honor, however, he buried the truth with him.
