(p.122) Epilogue
John Clare and the Place of Poetry
Liverpool University Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on John Clare and his poems. It has described the intricate ways in which Clare was placed, and placed himself among the poets and in the literary culture of his time and provided new insights into how Clare and other ‘humble’ writers drew on and contributed to a rich communal culture of allusion. This chapter also suggests that allusions provided Clare not only with a means of establishing kinships with his fellow poets but also offered him a way of thinking creatively about his place among the poets and about the nature of allusion itself.

Keywords:   John Clare, poems, literary culture, allusion, humble writers, communal culture
