Prof. Jordan Smith publishes a new book, Clare’s Empire

Although the British poet John Clare’s life may seem remote, his experience of radical inequality and its psychological effects, the loss of a common stake in the landscape he loved and wrote about, and the difficulties of making his way as a writer will seem very timely.

Prof. Smith’s book is the first to be published by The Hydroelectric Press. The poetry collection is now available in e-book format through Kindle, iTunes, as well as through the websites of independent booksellers including, regionally, The Northshire Bookstore Saratoga, The Open Door in Schenectady, The Book House in Albany, and Market Block Books in Troy.
