lecture on Elegy Poetry

Elegy Poem that mourns a death or other great loss. “Candle in the Wind” by Elton John and “Tears in Heaven” by Eric Clapton; are one of the best example of Elegy Poetry. An elegy is a sad poem, usually written to praise and express sorrow for someone who is dead. Although a speech at a funeral is a eulogy, you might later compose an elegy to someone you have loved and lost to the grave.
