Book One - The Lovers Meeting - (from 1818) is a reworking by Clare of Ovid's first century erotic poem. It seems to us very much with Patty in mind.
Book Three - In the Shadows - is the story of Clare's largely illusory relationship with Mary Joyce ranging over his whole life.
Both 'Poet' 'and "Shadows' contain newly discovered Clare works and little known poems rejected by his publishers.
The reviews of the books were wonderful, here is Ronnie Blythe :
