The Northamptonshire poet John Clare (1793-1864) knew and named more than 400 plant species in his poetry and prose ... Professor Mahood now brings to bear her immense experience as a scholar and a writer to describe and discuss Clare's mentions of plants, in a book that is both a wonderful series of concise essays and an invaluable reference source for lovers of Clare, poetry, flowers, wildlife and the natural world. Ordered according to the latest system of classification, A John Clare Flora is fully indexed by both scientific and common names, including those used by Clare, so that every reference to plants in his writings may easily be found. The entries are also tied to the best editions of Clare's poetry and prose.
