17371812, Nov 17
an English poet who moved in high society during the second half of the 18th century. A writer of liberal views, he was savagely satirised later in life. At the outset of his literary career, Jerningham mixed with the circle about Thomas Gray, although he never met the poet himself. However, like many at the time, he began by writing a close imitation of Gray's Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard in "The Nunnery” (1762). Jerningham then followed it up in successive years with other poems on similar themes in which the connection with Gray’s work, though less close, was maintained in theme, form and emotional tone.
