  2. 2. The Author - He was born in 1811 and died in 1890 - Scottish artist - He was one of the first British artists - He was also a poet and art teacher
  3. 3. The Title - By referring to the title, the word “death”, captures the main idea of the poem and what is explored constantly throughout it.
  4. 4. Themes ● Death ● Infinity ● Existence ● Family relations
  5. 5. Tones ● Mistery ● Darkness ● Advises or warns
  6. 6. Personal opinion We all think that this poem is very significant and shows the reality of life. Every person in the world will die, soon or later. The poem tries to show this as a natural thing, that will arrive in our lives. We see this as the end of an era. Some people will feel sad, some other wilk feel liberated. In our opinion, this is something that has to happen, because we are not alive forever.
  8. 8. Literary devices - Imagery: This literature device is used by the author more than once: - “Man...vanishes as doth the worm that he created”- the author creates an image of decaying body being fed on by worms - “Deep of the night…”: with dark already being dark on its own, this phrase gives us the image hiding behid the even darker shadows oficina night. - Personification: “death Is speaking”: it gives human characteristics to death.
