In John Donne's poetry on death, he describes grave as this intimate, secluded or safe location. Donne seems to believe that death is not the antithesis to love or intimacy, but rather a final place for two people to meet. His poetry, in an attempt to alleviate the fears surrounding death, romanticize and idealize decay. But this brings forth new questions; How is this intimacy that Donne describes affected by the funeral and the mourning process.
