Gray's poems were all lyric poems, meaning they are melodic, song-like poems. Gray's poems focused on political issues, the English countryside, and/or general truths about human nature. Writing in his s study of Alasdair Gray’s novels, Stephen Bernstein identifies Gray as “one of the most important living writers in English. His satirical blend of realism and fantasy and his compassionate use of humor and sorrow distinguish his novels, short stories, plays, and poems in the crowded field of contemporary literature.”.
