For Whom the Bell Tolls

Who does the "whom" refer to?

I recently read One of Hemiway's masterpiece----for whom the bell tolls,and there are so many different views about the identity of the 'WHOM".

For ''whom'' - for you and for everybody

The 'Whom' is for everyman ( ok every woman too )

It is taken from a poem by John Donne a Metaphysical poet

"send not to know.

For whom the bell tolls,

It tolls for thee."

John Donne 1624
