Thomas Gray Archive

Most well known for his "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard," Thomas Gray was an eighteenth century British poet, satirist, and all-around "polymath" with a passion for history, literature, science, philosophy and more. Reimer Eck of Goettingen State and University Library and Alexander Huber of the University of Oxford's Bodleian Libraries have teamed up to create The Thomas Gray Archive. Here, visitors will find all major works by Gray, accompanied by an extensive collection of the Gray's correspondence. These items are perhaps best explored via the Digital Library (available under the Texts tab), which allows visitors to browse items by category. Note that this section also features audio versions of three of Gray's poems, read by actors Michael Burrell and the late Sir Michael Redgrave. In the Resources tab, visitors will find a variety of tools and resources to aide in analysis of Gray's work, including links to scholarly criticism, a chronology of Gray's life, and a glossary of significant personal and place names.
