      The best poems by John Clare selected by Dr Oliver Tearle. John Clare () has been called the greatest nature poet in the English language (by, for instance, his biographer Jonathan Bate), and yet his life – particularly his madness and time inside an asylum later in his life – tends to overshadow his poetry.

This history lays across a sprawling spectrum of industries, with everything from cloth making to agriculture featured in tourist guides across the globe.
