No Man Is An Island by John Donne No man is an island entire of itself;

every man s 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 any manner of thy friends 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. Watch the beginning of Michael Bays The Island. Be prepared to discuss three concepts portrayed in

the movie that also manifest in Aldous Huxleys Brave New World.
