So, I'm doing an entrance exam for Harris Westminster on English and Music and I saw the sample questions on english. I'm a bit lost on what to do so if someone could give me tips or pointers that would be really useful so im prepared for the exam!

Read the poem and then answer the question.
‘Death, be not proud’
Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so;
For those whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure; then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery.
Thou’art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy’or charms can make us sleep as well
And better than thy stroke; why swell’st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.
John Donne (1572 – 1631)
