George Crabbe (24 December 1754 3 February 1832) was an English poet and clergyman. Lord Byron, an avowed admirer of Crabbe's poetry, called him 'nature's sternest painter, yet the best'. Crabbe's poetry was predominantly in the form of heroic couplets, and has been described as unsentimental in its depiction of provincial life and society. Modern critic Frank Whitehead has said that 'Crabbe, in his verse tales in particular, is an important, indeed, a major, poet whose work has been and still is seriously undervalued'. His works include The Village (1783), Poems (1807), The Borough (1810), and his poetry collections Tales (1812) and Tales of the Hall (1819). Crabbe also had a lifelong interest in naturalism, entomology and botany, and was particularly known for his study of beetles. Size: 8vo. N° de ref. de la librería 000121
