John Clare (1793-1864) English poet and writer of prose, born into a poor farm labourers family in Rural Northamptonshire, his poetry mostly dealt with observations of nature and the changing nature of farming life and practise. He found some fame in London but suffered serious mental illness later in life resulting in some of the most honest poetry about the disintegrating, divided and alienated self. In recent years his work has been re-evaluated and profile raised considerably.
