This authoritative edition was originally published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series under the general editorship of Frank Kermode. It brings together a generous selection of Clare's poetry and prose, including autobiographical writings and letters. John Clare (1793-1864) is now recognized as one of the greatest English Romantic poets, after years of indifference and neglect. Clare was an impoverished agricultural labourer, whose genius was generally not appreciated by his contemporaries, and his later mental instability further contributed to his loss of critical esteem. But the extraordinary range of his poetical gifts has restored him to the company of his contemporaries Byron, Keats, and Shelley, and this fine selection illustrates all aspects of his talent. It contains poems from all stages of his career, including love poetry, and bird and nature poems. Written in his native Northamptonshire, Clare's work provides a fascinating reflection of rural society, often underscored by his own sense of isolation and despair. Clare's writings are here presented with the minimum of editorial interference, and with a new Introduction by the poet and scholar Tom Paulin.

Transatlantic Literary Ecologies

Nature and Culture in the Nineteenth-Century Anglophone Atlantic World

Opening a dialogue between ecocriticism and transatlantic studies, this collection shows how the two fields inform, complement, and complicate each other. The editors situate the volume in its critical contexts by providing a detailed literary and historical overview of nineteenth-century transatlantic socioenvironmental issues involving such topics as the contemporary fur and timber trades, colonialism and agricultural "improvement," literary discourses on conservation, and the consequences of industrial capitalism, urbanization, and urban environmental activism. The chapters move from the broad to the particular, offering insights into Romanticism’s transatlantic discourses on nature and culture, examining British Victorian representations of nature in light of their reception by American writers and readers, providing in-depth analyses of literary forms such as the adventure novel, travel narratives, and theological and scientific writings, and bringing transatlantic and ecocritical perspectives to bear on classic works of nineteenth-century American literature. By opening a critical dialogue between these two vital areas of scholarship, Transatlantic Literary Ecologies demonstrates some of the key ways in which Western environmental consciousness and associated literary practices arose in the context of transatlantic literary and cultural exchanges during the long nineteenth century.

John Clare and Community

John Clare (1793–1864) is one of the most sensitive poetic observers of the natural world. Born into a rural labouring family, he felt connected to two communities: his native village and the Romantic and earlier poets who inspired him. The first part of this study of Clare and community shows how Clare absorbed and responded to his reading of a selection of poets including Chatterton, Bloomfield, Gray and Keats, revealing just how serious the process of self-education was to his development. The second part shows how he combined this reading with the oral folk-culture he was steeped in, to create an unrivalled poetic record of a rural culture during the period of enclosure, and the painful transition to the modern world. In his lifelong engagement with rural and literary life, Clare understood the limitations as well as the strengths in communities, the pleasures as well as the horrors of isolation.

Romanticism and the Rise of English

Author: Andrew Elfenbein

Publisher: Stanford University Press

ISBN: 9780804769891

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 288

View: 9674

Named a CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title for 2009 Romanticism and the Rise of English addresses a peculiar development in contemporary literary criticism: the disappearance of the history of the English language as a relevant topic. Elfenbein argues for a return not to older modes of criticism, but to questions about the relation between literature and language that have vanished from contemporary investigation. His book is an example of a kind of work that has often been called for but rarely realized—a social philology that takes seriously the formal and institutional forces shaping the production of English. This results not only in a history of English, but also in a recovery of major events shaping English studies as a coherent discipline. This book points to new directions in literary criticism by arguing for the need to reconceptualize authorial agency in light of a broadened understanding of linguistic history.

The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects.

John Clare

Lunatic, lover, poet: this is the definitive biography of John Clare. John Clare was a great Romantic poet, with a name to rival that of Blake, Byron, Coleridge, Keats, Wordsworth or Shelley, and a life that was possibly the most extraordinary, and certainly the most moving, of them all. From rural Northamptonshire to literary London, from first love to delusions, depression and incarceration, Clare was haunted by ghosts from the past. In this, the first major biography of Clare, Jonathan Bate explores both the man and his madness, his work and his writing - poems, letters, even part of an autobiography - all of which show a mind plagued by demons and doubts, constantly questioning issues of identity, memory and, above all, loss.

Ernest Clines Bestseller ›Ready Player One‹ ist DER Science-Fiction-Roman zur Virtual-Reality-Revolution und Vorlage für den großen Kinoblockbuster von Steven Spielberg. Im Jahr 2045 ist die Welt ein hässlicher Ort: Die Erdölvorräte sind aufgebraucht, ein Großteil der Bevölkerung lebt in Armut. Einziger Lichtblick ist die OASIS, eine virtuelle Ersatzwelt, in der man leben, arbeiten, zur Schule gehen und spielen kann. Die OASIS ist ein ganzes Universum, es gibt Tausende von Welten, von denen jede ebenso einzigartig wie phantasievoll ist. Und sie hat ein Geheimnis. Der exzentrische Schöpfer der OASIS hat tief im virtuellen Code einen Schatz vergraben, und wer ihn findet, wird seinen gesamten Besitz erben – zweihundertvierzig Milliarden Dollar. Eine Reihe von Rätseln weist den Weg, doch der Haken ist: Niemand weiß, wo die Fährte beginnt. Bis Wade Watts, ein ganz normaler Junge, der am Stadtrand von Oklahoma City in einem Wohnwagen lebt, den ersten wirklich brauchbaren Hinweis findet. Die Jagd ist eröffnet ... »›Ready Player One‹ ist absolut fantastisch – ein großer Spaß für den Geek in mir. Ich hatte das Gefühl, als sei das Buch nur für mich geschrieben worden.« Patrick Rothfuss

Born in 1793, John Clare lived and worked during the Golden Age of British poetry, the time of Shelley, Byron, Keats, and Coleridge. In the grand tradition of English nature writing, he stands alongside Wordsworth as a poet of extraordinary humanity and great spirit. Clare was 18 years old when the first Luddite riots occurred. He was deeply resistant to the first years of England's Enclosure, and he offers a contemporaneous look at what the world was like for those struggling with the impact of the first Industrial Revolution. Uneducated but remarkably well read, Clare was briefly celebrated in London, only to spend his final years in a lunatic asylum. He died in one on May 20, 1864, almost exactly one year before William Butler Yeats was born and the world set out on the path to Modernism. As James Reeves, an early critic and admirer, has said, "The existence of Clare the poet is, of course, a miracle . . . This is its most precious gift. Clare was a happy poet; there is more happiness in his poetry than in that of most others. This was no mere animal contentment of body and senses, but a quiet ecstasy and inward rapture. Such happiness is not to be had except at a price." Tom Pohrt's drawings and watercolors have been widely admired. There are few alive whose sensibility more properly matches Clare's—it's as if Samuel Palmer had taken the commission to illustrate a selection of the peasant poet. Pohrt has himself made the selection of poems from the vast quantity that survived Clare's chaotic life. Robert Hass joins the project to place Clare's work in the larger context of nature poetry in the West. The result is a book sure to please those who know already of Clare's fine poems and those for whom this book will be their exciting introduction.
