eBook - 1991
Rate this:

Henry Weinfield offers a new reading not only of the "Elegy "itself but also of its place in English literary history. His central argument is that in Gray's "Elegy "the thematic constellation of poverty, anonymity, alienation, and unfulfilled potential--or what Weinfield calls the "problem of history"--is fully articulated for the first time, and that, as a result, the "Elegy "represents an important turning-point in the history of English poetry.
