Передня обкладинка
Yale University Press, 1 січ. 2000 р. - 718 стор.
This major biography of Thomas Gray (1716-1771), the first in nearly half a century, expands our knowledge of the life of the English poet and our understanding of his personality and influential body of works. Robert L. Mack incorporates recent - and often radically revisionary - scholarship on Gray, drawing on developments in eighteenth-century studies and gender studies as well as on extensive original archival research into the life of the poet and his family.
