Providing the first reliable basis for a new assessment of John Clare's poetic growth, this two-volume collection presents all of Clare's early poems--many published here for the first time--and all known variants. Ranging from juvenilia to the published poems that first established Clare's reputation, this edition preserves Clare's characteristic spelling, punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary, and includes an introduction, extensive annotations, and a glossary.
