Format: Paperback
Underrated for so long as a result of the same English academic snobishness that leads intelligent people to deny that a homely man of Stratford-upon-avon could have written Hamlet, its good to see that John Clare is finally being recognised as the great poet that he was. Its often said that this man of humble origins was a consistantly good poet, without composing any real classic. Yet read the title poem 'I Am' a few times, learn of its context in the final admission of Clare into a lunatic asylum, and I defy you to remain unmoved by lines such as

'I long for scenes, where man has never trod,

A place where women never smiled or wept'.

This collection is usefully divided into themes (ie.love, politics of nature) and comes with a brief biographical sketch and glossary.

For anyone who has yet to encounter John Clare, I would suggest a visit to his works. Rural life in times gone by is visible in tooth and claw within these gems of his. I find it impossible to read these pages without my imagination opening up views of a world and life-style which I can only dream of. The images seem to come from a cultural memory. Constable's 'Haywain,' is as close as I can use as a starting point to let ones mind wander, in describing how it effects me.

The poetry speaks for itself & this book is just the right size to keep by the bed for a delightful read prior to sleep. It chronicles the destruction of the landscape well before anyone alive now was born. The pjrasing & the words are superb.

Studying Victorian Poetry at Uni when the lecturer introduced me to John Clare and his poetry. He is an amazing poet and his poem "I AM" is probably my favourite poem ever! However, as I have only found his poetry in expensive anthologies I thought this collection would be a cheap way to read more of his poetry. For the price it is an excellent collection of poetry, however, the introduction leaves a lot to be desired as it is a bare bones bio of John Clare and his poetry. If you just want a selected collection of John Clare's poetry then get this, however if you want something more substantial and informative than maybe look elsewhere.

It is a great introduction to John Clare's poems and would make a great gift, but not great for Uni students due to lack of decent intro.

If you just want a collection of poetry then buy this. Also consider Thomas Hardy as well especially http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thomas-Hardy-Complete-Poems/dp/0333949293/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

Didn't have the poem in that we wanted but still a very nice little publication - John Clare really captures his subjects and brings them to life in words. Even if you aren't interested in poetry, this will evoke memories.
