Description - John Clare by John Clare

Completing the influential Oxford edition of Clare's collected poems, this volume presents the poems of the Northborough period of Clare's creativity. As with other volumes in the edition, many of the poems have never before been published, and Clare's spelling, punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary have all been carefully preserved. This final volume also includes corrections to the texts, variants, and notes in previously-published volumes in the series, along with a cumulative glossary and cumulative indices of first-lines and titles that will assist readers in their use of the edition as a whole. Clare's poetry deals not only with his own countryside, but also with its ceremonies and celebrations, its customs and games, its political, economic, and religious concerns, its proverbs, tales, and songs - indeed, with all aspects of its popular culture. The poems of the Northborough period are some of Clare's best work, demonstrating a particularly concise vision of Clare's experience of Nature.
