John Clare is now celebrated as English literature's most important poet of the natural world. Flower Poems contains poems which include detailed interactions with and descriptions of flowers. These floral poems cover topics such as childhood, love, faith, parenthood, old age, rambling, rural life, ecology and the environmental damage wrought upon nature by humanity. Clare's ecological conscience and intimacy with the natural world could not be more relevant or inspiring to our own environmentally-threatened time. Edited and with an Introduction, Glossary and Editorial Note by Simon Kövesi, this collection has been designed to make Clare's poetry as accessible as possible. It follows on directly from Kövesi's edition of Love Poems (1999).
