You might center your analysis on the the three analogies that Donne uses in his sermon to a congregation: the book, the bell, the island, and gold or treasure. In your discussion you could show how each shows the speaker's faith in God and his belief that all men are connected: "No man is an island." These analogies, or conceits, are trademarks of Donne's writing. As you discuss each of these analogies, you should show how it connects to the main ideas of the essay (faith in God and interconnectivenss of mankind) and why the analogy is appropriate or effective in conveying these ideas.
