Selected poems and prose by John Clare( Book )

38 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in English and held by 837 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Clare produced some of English poetry's most poignant and glorious lyrics. Writing not as an observer of nature but from an intimate knowledge of the wheatfields, hedgerows, and ditches of his village in Northamptonshire, he described animals, insects, trees, rivers, sunlight, and clouds with sublime sensitivity. But as enclosures and "improvements" came in the early nineteenth century, dismembering the rural landscape, his later poems became infused with a sense of disorientation and loss, and scattered with threads of madness. Clare's genius has been rediscovered by fellow poets in every generation since his death, from Dylan Thomas to Ted Hughes to Seamus Heaney

Part I contains discussions of the nature and purposes of English lessons, the place of literature in education, methods for teaching poetry and exploring language, the importance of oral reading in the English classroom, and the techniques involved in organizing and completing an English project. Part ii examines over 30 possible topics for projects in reading, discussion, and composition--E.G., Outsiders, Christmas, lighthouses, miners, pestilence and famine, and predators. With each topic, guidelines are suggested for subject range, supplementary and oral reading, writing assignments, oral reports, language experiences, and ancillary activities. (Jb)
