Timor mortis conturbat me

Timor mortis conturbat me is a Latin phrase found in late medieval Scottish and English poetry, translating to "fear of death disturbs me". The phrase comes from a responsory of the Catholic Office of the Dead, in the third Nocturn of Matins: Peccantem me quotidie, et non poenitentem, timor mortis conturbat me. Quia in inferno nulla est redemptio, miserere mei, Deus, et salva me. Sinning daily, not repenting, the fear of death disturbs me. For there is no redemption in Hell, have mercy on me, o God, save me. Since the phrase "timor mortis conturbat me" was popular in medieval literature, was repeated in poetry, there are numerous poems that are conventionally titled timor mortis conturbat me because they contain the phrase. In terms of genre, poetry in this tradition appears in the form of a meditation, or a sermon that employs exempla. In some cases, the poetry took the form of a list. Although the list is not technically a form of genre, it is a common medieval literary convention. Several themes appear in timor mortis poetry which are frequently found in other medieval poems on the subject of death.

A common theme is death's triumph over people no matter how powerful a person was in life. Another common theme is the uncertainty of. Poets invariably pointed out that there is no guarantee that a person will live from one moment to the next, that death could strike and without warning; this led to the theme of the immediate need for penance and good works. It was stressed that a person should not delay in seeking penance or doing good works, lest they should perish and suffer eternally in Hell for it. William Dunbar's "Lament for the Makaris", written around the end of the 15th century, employs the phrase at the last line of each verse; as its title indicates, the poem refers back to the titular medieval Scottish poets. He hes done petuously devour, The noble Chaucer, of makaris flour, The Monk of Bery, Gower, all thre; the gude Syr Hew of Eglintoun, And eik Heryot, Wyntoun, He hes tane out of this cuntre. The first eleven stanzas of Lament for the Makaris are quoted in Chapter III of The Worm Ouroboros, by E. R. Eddison.

The phrase is a refrain in Kenneth Rexroth's 1966 poem "Thou Shalt Not Kill". What became of Jim Oppenheim? Lola Ridge alone in an Icy furnished room? Orrick Johns, Hopping into the surf on his One leg? Elinor Wylie Who leaped like Kierkegaard? Sara Teasdale, where is she? Timor mortis conturbat me. Jack Vance parodies this convention in his novel The Palace of Love. Writing through his character Navarth the Mad Poet, he relates a poem in which the stanzas end in such examples as Tim R. Mortiss degurgled me, Tim R. Mortiss disturgled me, Tim R. Mortiss occurgled me, etc. David Markson's 2001 postmodern novel This Is Not a Novel may be seen as an extended example of the genre; the Latin phrase appears, translated as "The fear of death distresses me," and the novel's content is dominated by an extensive catalog of how hundreds of writers and artists died. Ubi sunt Memento mori Patterson, Frank Allen; the Middle English Penitential Lyric. Brown, Carleton. A Register of Middle English Religious & Didactic Verse.
