John Clare (1793-1864) was an English poet born into the family of a farm labourer. In his time he was commonly known as the “Northamptonshire Peasant Poet” and appreciated for his celebration of the English countryside. One of his biographers (Jonathan Bate, 2003) called Clare “the greatest labouring-class poet that England has ever produced. No one has ever written more powerfully of nature, a rural childhood, and of the alienated and unstable self”. Timothy Brownlow  is an Irish literary magazine editor, academic and poet now living in Canada. John Clare and Picturesque Landscape is Brownlow’s doctoral thesis published by the Clarendon imprint of Oxford University Press. It examines John Clare’s life and work before 1841.
