  GEORGE CRABBE - LoveToKnow Article on GEORGE CRABBE
In 1813 Crabbes wife died, and in 1814 he was given the living of Trowbridge, Wiltshire, by the duke of Rutland, a son of his early patron, who, it is interesting to recall, wanted the living of Muston for a cousin of Lord Byron.
Crabbe died at Trowbridge on the 3rd of February 1832, and was buried in Trowbridge church, where an ornate monument was placed over his tomb in August 1833.
The life by Crabbes son in one volume, The Life of the Rev. George Crabbe, LL.B., by his son the Rev. George Crable, A.M. (1834), has not been separately reprinted as it deserves to be.

 [No title]
Crabbe was not stern in his attitude either to his fellow-men, or to the varying aspects of Nature, although for the first years of his life he was in habitual contact with the less alluring side of both.
Crabbe and his wife were to remain at Belvoir as long as it suited their convenience, and the duke undertook that he would not forget him as regarded future preferment.
Crabbe seems, however, to have shown so much good-feeling and forbearance in the matter that the old lady, after grimly boasting that she could "screw Crabbe up and down like a fiddle," was ultimately friendly, and her share of her brother's estate came in due course to Crabbe and his wife.

Destined for the profession of medicine, George was apprenticed to a medical practitioner in Wickhambrook, near Bury St. Edmunds, from whose surgery, three years later, he passed into that of a doctor at Woodbridge.
Here he remained from 1771 to 1775, and became acquainted with Sarah Elmy, who, though ten years were to pass before they were married, exercised from the first a softening and brightening influence on the rather grim nature of the unformed youth.
Crabbe shows signs already of that revolt against idealisation which was to inspire his mature work.

 George Crabbe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The REV. GEORGE CRABBE, whom Byron has characterised as "Nature's sternest painter, yet the best," was of humble origin, and born at Aldborough, in Suffolk, on the Christmas-eve of 1754.
Crabbe entered into sacred orders, and was licensed as a curate to the rector of his native parish of Aldborough.
It must be confessed, however, that Crabbe was in general a gloomy painter of life — that he was fond of depicting the unlovely and unamiable — and that, either for poetic effect or from painful experience, he makes the bad of life predominate over the good.

George Crabbe, after paying his debts, set sail for London on board a sloop at Slaughden Quay—"master of a box of clothes, a small case of surgical instruments, and three pounds in money." This was in April 1780.
George Crabbe the younger, who gives this graphic account of the ménage at Parham, was naturally anxious to claim for his mother, who so long formed one of this queer household, a degree of refinement superior to that of her surroundings.
Crabbe's son, with the admirable frankness that marks his memoir throughout, does not conceal that this step in his father's life was a mistake, and that he recognised and regretted it as such on cooler reflection.

 Book review by JD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
George Crabbe was a minor poet, floruit the couple of decades on each side of 1800.
Crabbe’s principal appeal to his own time, and his sole claim to originality in verse, was what we should nowadays call his “realism.” Here is Byron: “We have been so long assailed by the wonderful and terrific in the poems and romances of the present day...
Crabbe in a whole skin among beings like ourselves, and without a hippogryph or dragon at our elbow.” I don’t think it is any offense to Crabbe to say that this aspect of his work, while of course interesting to a chronicler of literary fashion, does little to commend him to today’s reader.

 George Crabbe: A Reappraisal   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
George Crabbe: A Reappraisal is centered on the belief that Crabbe, particularly in his verse-tales, is an important, even major, poet whose work has been and still is seriously undervalued.
The most important factors leading to this striking change in his poetic practice are outlined, and an attempt is made to specify the characteristics of the mature tales that give them their enduring value and appeal.
A further chapter records the gradual decline of Crabbe's powers as manifested in his two final volumes, Tales of the Hall and Posthumous Tales.

 The Literary Economy of Jane Austen and George Crabbe   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Though Jane Austen (1775-1817) and the poet George Crabbe (1754-1832) each wrote during the Napoleonic Wars, no full-length study has considered the importance of these pivotal events to their writing.
In The Literary Economy of Jane Austen and George Crabbe, Colin Winborn argues that both writers were unusually responsive to the economic anxieties specific to wartime, occasioned especially by the Napoleonic trade embargo imposed on Britain from 1806 to 1812, and shared a particular concern with the economizing of space.
Winborn's term 'spatial economy' refers to the practice of turning available resources to the best possible account, which these authors applied even to the practice of writing as they strove to preserve space on the page (Austen in her letters and Crabbe in the couplet).

 Geometry.Net - Philosophers: Burke Edmund
Burke soon proved to be one of the main characters in the constitutional controversy in Britain under George III, who at the time was trying to establish more actual power for the crown.
Although the crown had lost some influence under the first two Georges, one of the major political problems in 18th century Britain was the fact that both the king and Parliament had considerable control over the executive.
Burke responded to these affairs in his pamphlet Thoughts on the Cause of the Present Discontents (1770), in which he argued that although George's actions were legal in the sense that they were not against the letter of the constitution, they were all the more against it in spirit.

About the poem 'The Borough' by George Crabbe
"What I thought I could best describe," Crabbe says, "that I attempted: the sea, and the country in the immediate vicinity; the dwellings and the inhabitants; some incidents and characters, with an exhibition of morals and manners, offensive perhaps to those of extremely delicate feelings, but sometimes, I hope, neither unamiable nor unaffecting."
Of Peter Grimes, Crabbe says, "The mind here exhibited is one untouched by pity, unstung by remorse, and uncorrected by shame; yet is this hardihood of temper and spirit broken by want, disease, solitude, and disappointment, and he becomes the victim of a distempered and horror-stricken fancy."
