`This is a good looking book, nicely presented in a clear readable type, and in a handy size both to slip in a pocket and not to overface a new reader. It presents an accurate text ...' - John Clare Society Journal
`Clare's poems and prose are available in a dozen editions, but none ... has the value of the Williams' Introduction.' - Times Education Supplement
