17). Adapting Lactantius’s point, Donne identifies the fear of damnation with “great courage” (ll. 15–16) and claims that the truly courageous, God-fearing man dares to confront the most terrifying things, the “foes” of God, the infernal triad of the devil, world, and flesh that the poet proceeds to describe (ll. 33–42). In a paradox asserting that “only Cowards dare dye,” Donne argues from the Aristotelian premise that courage is a mean between recklessness and DONNE AND THE PERSONAL MEAN 25 cowardice to a radically non-Aristotelian conclusion.

57 Donne’s portrayal of suicidal extremism in “Satire 3” certainly reveals a sense of fragmentation, but the satire also uses Skepticism reconstructively to imagine a self finally saved from self-destructive extremes. The poem’s Skepticism is not “corrosive” because it is limited. While Donne questions the validity of any given ecclesiastical or political formation, he doubts neither God’s ultimate benevolence nor the individual’s eventual ability to find his proper place in the world. 58 Defining the Mean of Personal Space Yet unlike “Satire 3,” Donne’s verse epistle to Wotton undertakes to define a limited sphere of individual freedom within the secular world without invoking a transcendental guarantor.

3) by invoking the mean. Unlike the satiric Horace, however, Donne does not treat the mean as an unproblematic norm. Near the end of both his second and fourth satires, he uses the mean-extremes polarity to treat issues or characters peripheral to the central issues that he confronts. 5 By contrast, in “Satire 3” Donne transforms the ancient mean to undergird his search for “true religion” in his own world of competing sects and difficult life choices. ” In the third line, “I must not laugh, nor weepe sinnes, and be wise,” the poet admonishes himself to control his strong feelings with an allusion to an ancient satiric topos concerning the proper response to the flaws of humanity.
