Selected Poems



The powerful, distinctive poems of George Crabbe - including 'Peter Grimes' and 'Sir Eustace Gray'

'Crabbe is a major English poet, powerful, original, distinctive and challenging . . .'

George Crabbe's poems, mostly heroic couplets, form powerful, unsentimental and often unflinching portrayals of provincial life and society. Dramatizing human motive in the subtlest of language, and anticipating writers like Charles Dickens and George Eliot, Crabbe explores his characters' beliefs and relationships, and their struggle against the undertow of past loves and humiliations.

With an introduction by Gavin Edwards.
