Clare's highly personal evocations of landscape and place are some of the most poignant lyrics in English poetry. His celebration of all forms of natural life and his laments for the death of rural England grew directly out of his intimate knowledge of the labourer's life, the wheatfields and hedgerows of his village in Northamptonshire. This authoritative and engaging selection includes poems from every stage of Clare's poetic career, organised by theme, from 'Birds and Beasts' to 'Madhouses, Prisons and Whorehouses'.

From frozen January to the long hot days of harvest, from the bursting sweetbriar leaves of March to Christmas plum cake and elderberry wine - John Clare's Shepherd's Calendar brings the country year to life with unparalleled intimacy.

Now, for the first time, Clare's final manuscript version and the first published edition of the poem are presented side by side. Tim Chilcott explores the relationship between them in an introduction, and Clare's words are illuminated by Carry Akroyd's linocuts.
