Abstract

On the occasion of his first trip to London, John Clare described his experience of sudden celebrity as a physical displacement:

… seeing people at my old occupations of ploughing and ditching in the fields by the road side while I was lolling in a coach the novelty created such strange feelings that I could almost fancy that my identity as well as my occupations had changd that I was not the same John Clare but that some stranger soul had jumped into my skin.1
