Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard
by Thomas Gray
Analysis: Steaminess Rating
Exactly how steamy is this poem?
Sorry to disappoint you, Shmoopers, but this is a poem about death and how we're remembered after we die, so there's not a lot of smooching going on. If you want a sexier poem from the eighteenth century, try Alexander Pope…
