"The story of the life of John Clare (1793-1864) was first set down more than a century ago, and it has captured the imagination of the reading public ever since. It is told most vividly and poignantly in John Clare's own words."--BOOK JACKET. "In this volume all of Clare's important autobiographical writing is brought together in definitive form. This book extends, corrects and thus replaces the Autobiographical Writings of John Clare edited by Eric Robinson (Oxford, 1983). Clare's Journal is set alongside his Sketches and 'Autobiographical Fragments', as well as his famous 'Journey Out of Essex'. Extracts from his asylum letters are included, his will, and maps of Clare's countryside and his 'Journey'. Ploughboy, gardener's boy and militiaman, lover and husband, acquaintance of Hazlitt, Lamb and Coleridge, 'lunatic': the manifold person of John Clare emerges with great freshness and true voice from this remarkable book. He is a defining figure of our rural tradition."--BOOK JACKET. "The book includes an Introduction, notes, two maps and a glossary of dialect and unfamiliar words, and is handsomely illustrated with wood engravings by John Lawrence."--Jacket

After years of indifference and neglect, John Clare (1793-1864) is now recognized as one of the greatest English Romantic poets. Clare was an impoverished agricultural laborer, whose genius was generally not appreciated by his contemporaries, and his later mental instability further contributed to his loss of critical esteem. But the extraordinary range of his poetical gifts has restored him to the company of contemporaries like Lord Byron, John Keats, and Percy Bysshe Shelley. This authoritative edition brings together a generous selection of Clare's poetry and prose, including autobiographical writings and letters and illustrates all aspects of his talent. It contains poems from all stages of his career, including love poetry and bird and nature poems. Written in his native Northamptonshire, Clare's work provides a fascinating reflection of rural society, often underscored by his own sense of isolation and despair. Clare's writings are presented with the minimum of editorial interference, and with a new introduction by the poet and scholar Tom Paulin
