Blunden to feature at the annual John Clare Society Festival 2016
John Clare, born in 1793 in Helpston, rural Northamptonshire, is now regarded as one of the most important poets of the natural world.
Blunden did much to make Clare known and this is being recognised through the Annual Lecture at the
John Clare Society festival this year.
The lecture will be given by Margi Blunden, daughter of Edmund Blunden who will explain how her father came to 'unearth' Clare in the early part of the 20th century. The John Clare Society Festival is in Helpston, near Peterborough between 15 - 17 July 2016.
