John Clare: Poems of the Middle Period, 1822-1837 Summary


John Clare: Poems of the Middle Period, 1822-1837: Volume III by John Clare

These volumes represent the third and fourth of five volumes devoted to Clare's 'middle period', between 1822 and 1837, arguably the years of his finest creativity. The poems contained in these volumes range from examples of Clare's satirical and political verse, in 'The Summons' and 'The Hue & Cry', to a telling expression of his philosophy of nature, in 'The Eternity of Nature', and probably the most important statement of Clare's poetic objectives in 'To the Rural Muse'. If there is any lingering belief in the 'sameness' of Clare's verse, these volumes ought surely to dispel it.

John Clare: Poems of the Middle Period, 1822-1837 Reviews


a remarkable collection of poems ... The retort to any carping about costs is that it is worth every penny; no poet, and certainly not Clare, could ever imagine their every jot and tittle would be so faithfully rescued for posterity. Any and every page is a testament to the patient endeavour, the sheer hard work, of Eric Robinson and his team: this is indeed a labour of love ... the material is all here, so there is no sense of our being denied anything. * Mark Storey, ROES, vol 50, no 200 (1999) *
This ongoing Clarendon edition of Clare's poetry... will come to be seen as one of the greatest editions of the twentieth century. * Greg Crossan, Notes and Queries Vol.47 No.1 *
