Thomas Gray’s output of poetry is small, but constitutes one of the most significant collections in English literary history. Varied in form and subject-matter, Gray’s work is always distinguished, and such poems as the Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard rank among the greatest in all English literature. He repeatedly takes forms and attitudes that have lent themselves to thoughtless repetition and transforms them into profound and moving poems.
