John Donne was an English poet, cleric in the Church of England and a lawyer, who was known as the representative of metaphysical poets. He has a great range of literary works that he wrote but his most recognized are sonnets. One of the most important themes in his poems is the concept of the true religion about which he wrote many worldly poems in which he showed his substantial attention in religious beliefs.

This poem is basically taking dead aim on the eternal. This poem is a villanelle, and elaborate fixed form of five tercets and quatrain.
Villanelles are a type of fixed verse poetry with a strict and demanding structure. It is a six stanza poem, the first five stanzas containing three lines, a tercet (Michno, 2000).

He also bestowed us with our own free will in order to love him and follow Him on our own, as He only wants moral and honest people as his followers.

With the help of Phoebe, it is important to see how Holden manipulates the poem into the fact that he is the catcher, who saves people from falling into the corruption of adulthood. Holden does not refer to the poem, he refers to his own version of it. Near the end of the book, Holden persuades Phoebe into getting onto the carrousel.

Epictetus’s way of philosophy is one that is purely Stoic, imploring that the solution to human finitude is one where humans can live life without showing feeling or complaining about pain and hardships towards unsavory situations. Each of his rules in his handbook offers advice in which the subject simply “deals” with disappointment, or rather, doesn’t expect something out of the scopes of reason and logic, so that, figuratively, when occurrences don’t go their way, they aren’t disappointed.
