An elegy is a poem that reflects upon death. It is a very good way for people to
release stress. It makes others think. An elegy to some people, is very depressing to
read. Most of thge time it tells the truth about a side of a persons life, that no one
knows about. An elegy could be a real breath taker, if taken the right way.
There are many well known elegy authors. One
showed first 75 words of 614 total
showed last 75 words of 614 total
second nature. Back in time, the
elegy was the ony type poem written, therefore everyone who wrote had to write an
elegy, that is why there are so many good one out there in today’s time. Even though
an elegy talks about death, I still enjoy reading a good elegy every once and a while.
