The poems in this collection are divided into three parts Early poems, Middle Poems and Asylum poems. Clare's descriptions of rural scenes show an ardent appreciation of nature and his fascination with creative process. His work recaptures the ideas of the Romantic poets, though he adds unique touch of his own.

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
