Completing the influential Oxford edition of Clare's collected poems, this volume presents the poems of the Northborough period of Clare's creativity. As with other volumes in the edition, many of the poems have never before been published, and Clare's spelling, punctuation, grammar, and vocabulary have all been carefully preserved. This final volume also includes corrections to the texts, variants, and notes in previously-published volumes in the series, along with a cumulative glossary and cumulative indices of first-lines and titles that will assist readers in their use of the edition as a whole. Clare's poetry deals not only with his own countryside, but also with its ceremonies and celebrations, its customs and games, its political, economic, and religious concerns, its proverbs, tales, and songs - indeed, with all aspects of its popular culture. The poems of the Northborough period are some of Clare's best work, demonstrating a particularly concise vision of Clare's experience of Nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Before this can be a review, it has to be a celebration. Raise your glasses, then, to the editors, who, after forty years of toil, have completed the very great achievement of putting into print virtually every line of verse that John Clare is known to have written ... The first response of all of us to this final volume must be one of heartfelt gratitude. * John Clare Society Journal *
This ongoing Clarendon edition of Clare's poetry ... will come to be seen as one of the greatest editions of the twentieth century. * Greg Crossan, Notes and Queries *
