From “An Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard”
Central Idea of the poem From “An Elegy Written In A Country Churchyard” written by Thomas Gray is that –
In this poem the poet expresses his deep sympathy for the poor and the simple village people. They lie buried in their small graves in a country churchyard. The sweet morning air of the twittering of the swallows or the cock’s cry of the horns or the hunters will have no effect on the dead. The poet says that the rich and ambitious people shouldn’t laugh at the poor. Death is the end of our life. We should not be proud of our noble birth, position and wealth.
