Poems of the Middle Period, 1822-1837: Vol IV

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

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.

This is the fourth volume of Oxford's John Clare collection, concluding works from The Midsummer Cushion and containing a wealth of material from other manuscripts . There is a slight, brownish mark to the back board, and some slight pencil marks to the page edging, but is in otherwise very good condition throughout, and represents an excellent addition to any academic or general reader's collection.
