Different Kinds of Elegies

Personal Elegy Death, remembrance of life, invocation, funeral, flowers, mourners, strong feelings, personal connection, consolation EX:) Ben Jonson's (On My First Daughter/Son)
General Elegy or "Lacrimae Rerum" Did not personally know, despair of the human condition, good things in past, bad things now EX:) Thomas Gray (Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard)
How is Thomas Gray's "Elegy" a General Elegy? Barely be remembered/all they wanted was to be remembered Alone, Night, Graveyard = Gloom and Doom No opportunity = knowledge/money Judgements = focusing on money success, and eyes of other people *Privileges of his life come out*
How is Ben Jonson's "On My First..." Personal Elegies? Remembrance for his son and daughter Consolation at the ends Mourners (him and his wife)
