Biography of the English poet John Clare (1793-1864), known during his life as "the Northamptonsthire Peasant Poet" and who another biographer calls the "greatest labouring-class poet that England has ever produced." The Tibbles' meticulous work provides many passages from Clare's journal, including his opinion upon literature, painting, politics, and religion, his observations as a field-naturalist and extracts from his Asylum notebooks.
