Description
Born in 1793, John Clare lived and wrote during the time of Shelley, Byron, Keats, and Coleridge, and in the grand tradition of English nature poetry he is known for his extraordinary humanity and the joy of his spirit. Uneducated but remarkably well read, Clare was briefly celebrated in London, only to spend his final years in a lunatic asylum. 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." Artist Tom Pohrt, having rediscovered Clare's remarkable vision of nature, here offers his own favorites from the poet's writings, and accompanies them with his own exquisite, evocative nature drawings and watercolors.
