About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1898 as part of the Pitt Press Series, this book contains 32 of Thomas Gray's poems, including his famous 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard' and 'Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College'. Copious notes at the back of the volume explain Gray's many classical, mythical and literary allusions for readers, and a brief introduction gives an outline of the poet's life and work. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in English pre-Romantic poetry.
