Summary

Until now, no modern critic has undertaken a full-length study of Robert Bloomfield in the context of the work of other Romantic poets. White's authoritative study demonstrates that Bloomfield's verse was key to the evolution of the lyric and literary ballad and was pivotal in the development of Romanticism. He also shows that, in fashioning a distinctive poetics of rural life, Bloomfield emphasized the importance of local tradition and community in the lives of labouring people. Robert Bloomfield, whom John Clare described as 'the most original poet of the age,' was a widely read and critically acclaimed poet throughout the first decade of the nineteenth century, and remained popular until the beginning of the twentieth century. Yet until now, no modern critic has undertaken a full-length study of his poetry and its contexts. Simon J.

For example, her argues that Wordsworth's poetics of rural life was in some respects a response to Bloomfield's The Farmer's Boy.White considers Bloomfield's emphasis on the importance of local tradition and community in the lives of labouring people. In challenging the idea that the formal and rhetorical innovation of Wordsworth and Coleridge was principally responsible for the emergence of a new kind of poetry at the turn of the eighteenth century, he also shows that it is impossible to understand how the lyric and the literary ballad evolved during the Romantic period without considering Bloomfield's poetry. White's authoritative study demonstrates that, on the contrary, Bloomfield's poetry was pivotal in the development of Romanticism.Contents: Introduction; The Farmer's Boy, The Prelude and the poetics of rural life; The romantic ballad and labouring-class culture; The romantic lyric and the lyric of labour; Betwixt and between patrons, publishers and readers; 'History from below' on The Banks of [the] Wye; Community labour and poetry i
