(MBP 492) Gray's romance in four cantos takes as its backdrop the defeat of a Welsh army by a Roman legion. Though set in Wales and Ireland, Cona is a very Scottish poem, as sweet as Beattie's The Minstrel but with Scott's descriptive specificity and something of James Macpherson's melancholy. (English Poetry 1579-1830) Gray, schoolmaster, Church of England clergyman, and writer. See ODNB.
