In this course we look at the work of Robert Bloomfield (1766-1823), who died at Shefford, and is regarded as one of the leading labouring class poets who became popular in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. These were self-taught writers whose work reflected the reality of rural life. Others we will look at are Stephen Duck, Mary Collier and John Clare.
