    John Clare was the forgotten Romantic poet, until the late 20th century. Known by his contemporaries as the Peasant Poet, he recorded in his poems the natural landscape of rural England before the Industrial Revolution.

    John Clare (1793-1864), ein bedeutender Dichter der englischen Romantik, geriet in seinen späten Jahren in eine tiefe Lebenskrise, bis er schließlich 1837 in eine private Nervenheilanstalt in High Beach, Essex, eingewiesen wurde. Vier Jahre später versuchte er, der Anstalt zu entkommen. Die "Reise aus Essex" ist die Geschichte dieser Flucht. Clare wanderte in einem brutalen Viertagemarsch über fast 100 Meilen zurück in sein Heimatdorf.
