9780198123149: The Early Poems of John Clare, 1804-1822: Volume I (Oxford English Texts: John Clare)

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.

About the Author:

John Clare (1793-1864) was an English poet, in his time commonly known as "the Northamptonshire Peasant Poet", the son of a farm labourer, born at Helpston near Peterborough. Eric Robinson is at University of Massachusetts. David Powell is at Nene College, Northampton.

Review:


"A necessary purchase for libraries serving graduate programs in English, and desirable for larger libraries serving advanced undergraduates because no satisfactory selections of Clare's early poetry exist."--Choice


"This Clarendon Press edition is a splendid achievement."--JEGP
