From the cover: “This book aims to provide the student and the general reader with a large selection of Crabbe’s poems. It includes all the Tales of 1812, two-thirds of The Parish Register and nearly half of The Borough, besides other poems — in all, a good third of Crabbe’s prolific work. The introduction offers the new reader a survey of Crabbe’s life and his varied poems, and takes issue with prejudices about Crabbe that have persisted to the present day. It traces his relationship to the Romantic Age in which he wrote most of his work, takes up the moral and social elements in his writing, and raises a number of critical discussions. A bibliography and chronology of Crabbe’s life are included, with a selection of Crabbe’s own notes to the poems.”
