PJ Harvey reads “No Man Is An Island” at Glastonbury


Wearing feathers and delivering one of the best festival’s performances this year, Polly Harvey has read out the iconic ‘No Man Is An Island’ poem by writer John Donne during her set at Glastonbury, reminding everyone that this poem had been written in 1624, hereby highlighting the regression that the Brexit makes for.

“No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is 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.”
