No Man Is An Island by John Donne (1572-1631)
No man is an island,
Entire of itself,
Every man is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thy friend’s
Or of thine own were:
Any man’s death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
And therefore, never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
These poem lines has been taken by Ernest Hemingway for his novel For whom the Bell tolls in which he talk about the side effects of Spanish civil war and the people who suffered from the war.
