4.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful, 23 April 2009
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Selected Poems of John Clare: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
I brought this book to help with my As English Literature course. Although it does not feature all of the poems, it features most of them. As well as the analysis on each poem the historical content of the poem within Clare's life is useful. As well as analysis on each poem it this book also includes analysis of some of Clare's key themes. A very useful book that I would recommend to anyone studying John Clare's poems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Offers helpful insights into the poems, 22 Aug. 2011
This review is from: Selected Poems of John Clare: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
I bought this book because I was studying Clare's poems for my A-level and my teacher didn't go very in depth in teaching them. The book offers a lot of in depth discussion and points on language e.g use of metaphors & hyperboles, but was a little lacking on the fronts of structure and form. It also offers interesting alternative interpretations and autobiographical notes as well as a section on literary and historical context. But I still felt the book wasn't detailed enough for me to pass the exam just by memorizing it and I still needed to do close reading by my self. However it is very useful for anyone studying Clare, but don't buy it if you have a really good teacher already as this won't go very much beyond what you'll get in good classes.
