Abstract

A  great poem that  touches  the  core  heart  of  the  readers  executing  the  rustic  forefathers’  lives  and  emotions  is  nothing  but  Gray’s  Country  Churchyard  which  uplands  the lawn  with  kindred  spirit.  Gray  harnesses  the  poem  with  the  breezy  calls  that  enviously kiss  us  in  the  destiny  of  ‘’homely  joys’’.  The  humble  buried  beds  are  not  only  twittering  ears  of  Gray  but  also  they  are  the  signification  of  clarion  call  that  figure  out  solemn  background  of  the  rude  forefathers  who  unlike  the  citizen  of  city  swelled  their  ‘’paths  of  glory’’  against  the  ‘’inevitable  hour’’.  As  an  advocate  of  the  down-trodden,  Gray  tries  to  persuade  that  the  rich  should  not  look  down  upon  the  poor.  The  poor  are  also  respectable  being  though  they  do  not  get  an  opportunity  to  elevate  their  lives  as  do  the  rich.  Furthermore,  though  they  were  not  able  to  cremate  their  dead  bodies  in  the  boundary  of  the  churchyard,  it  was  not  their  faults.  Despite  the  wealthy  and  the  proud  people  though  get  place  to  be  cremated  in  the  churchyards  singing  the  hymns  in  honor  of  dead,  they  suffer  huge  setbacks  in  this  worldly  affairs.  Because  time  is  the  grand  mower  whose  sickle  never  leaves  anybody  whether  rich  or  poor  but  mows  down  all  forever.
