    John Clare was the forgotten Romantic poet, until the late 20th century.

    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.

Clare wanderte in einem brutalen Viertagemarsch über fast 100 Meilen zurück in sein Heimatdorf.
