About the Author:

English poet John Clare was born to a poor labouring family in Northamptonshire. “The Seasons” by Thomson inspired him to write poetry in his teens. His technical, formal and linguistic ingenuity marks him as a unique individual with characteristic work.

Review:

'Clare grabs hold of you - no, he doesn't grab hold of you, he is already there, talking to you before you've arrived on the scene, telling you about himself, about the things that are closest and dearest to him, and it would no more occur to him to do otherwise than it would occur to Whitman to stop singing you his song of himself.' John Ashbery; 'It is what Lawrence calls the poetry of the living present.' Seamus Heaney
