Sunday evenings he would play the pianola and sing Scottish songs to his family. Crabbe, a devoted husband, tended her with exemplary care until her death in Where are the swains, who, daily labor done, With rural games played down the setting sun; Who struck with matchless force the bounding ball, Or made the pond'rous quoit obliquely fall; While some huge Ajax, terrible and strong, Engaged some artful stripling of the throng, And, foiled, beneath the young Ulysses fell, When peals of praise the merry mischief tell? From the start he made a principled rejection of the commonplaces of pastoral poetry, and wrote instead of the brutalised lives of working people, the poor and the destitute. At all events they made up their minds that they had a poet in him.

There he was given an apartment, supplied with books, and made a member of the family. He had intended to go on to London to study at a hospital, but he was forced through low finances to work for some time as a local warehouseman. His scream and gesture made his wife conclude that he had sat down on a pair of scissors, or the like: but very little harm had been done except the breaking of the glass. Say ye, opprest by some fantastic woes, Some jarring nerve that baffles your repose; Who press the downy couch, while slaves advance With timid eye, to read the distant glance; Who with sad prayers the weary doctor teaze To name the nameless ever-new disease; Who with mock patience dire complaints endure, Which real pain, and that alone can cure; How would ye bear in real pain to lie, Despis'd, neglected, left alone to die?

He seems to have had no kind of polish, and late in life was a mere rough drinking exciseman; but his education, especially in mathematics, appears to have been considerable, and his ability in business not small. As on their neighbouring beach yon swallows stand, And wait for favoring winds to leave the land; While still for flight the ready wing is spread: So waited I the favouring hour, and fled; Fled from these shores where guilt and famine reign, And cried, Ah! Ward's, some eighty years ago. He completed his unfinished poems and revised others with the help of Burke's criticism. During his time there, his poem The Village was published in May[22] achieving popularity with the public and critics. The young Duke of Rutland, who had been made a strong Tory by Pitt, was fond of letters, and his Duchess Isabel, who was,--like her elder kinswoman, Dryden's Duchess of Ormond-- A daughter of the rose, whose cheeks unite The varying beauties of the red and white, in other words, a Somerset, was one of the most beautiful and gracious women in England.

This property was sold in to the State Government and is now the site of the Warrnambool Police Station. Fled are those times, if e'er such times were seen, When rustic The life and poetical works of George Crabbe book praised their native green: No shepherds now in smooth alternate verse, Their country's beauty or their nymphs' rehearse; Yet still for these we frame the tender strain, Still in our lays fond Corydons complain, And shepherds' boys their amorous pains reveal, The only pains, alas!

But soon a loud and hasty summons calls, Shakes the thin roof, and echoes round the walls; Anon, a figure enters, quaintly neat, All pride and business, bustle and conceit; With looks unalter'd by these scenes of woe, With speed that entering, speaks his haste to go; He bids the gazing throng around him fly, And carries fate and physic in his eye; A potent quack, long vers'd in human ills, Who first insults the victim whom he kills; Whose murd'rous hand a drowsy bench protect, And whose most tender mercy is neglect.

His wife, who had been his boyhood sweetheart, suffered from acute depressions, and was periodically insane in later life; "happiness," as Crabbe said after her death, "was denied".

His best works are an original achievement in a new realistic poetical form. The chain of argument The life and poetical works of George Crabbe book illogical, and it is carried on, for the most part, without any apparently determinate object.

He developed and updated the library with a wide variety of books for all tastes, including reference books for students; a difficult task to fulfil during the years following the Depression. Nor yet can time itself obtain for these Life's latest comforts, due respect and ease; For yonder see that hoary swain, whose age Can with no cares except his own engage; Who, propped on that rude staff, looks up to see The bare arms broken from the withering tree, On which, a boy, he climbed the loftiest bough, Then his first joy, but his sad emblem now.

Scott read him constantly, he quotes him incessantly; and no one who has read it can ever forget how Crabbe figures in the most pathetic biographical pages ever written--Lockhart's account of the death at Abbotsford. One of the most striking things in Crabbe's biography is his remembrance of the gradual disillusion of a day of pleasure which, as a child, he enjoyed in a new boat of his father's.

Now to the church behold the mourners come, Sedately torpid and devoutly dumb; The village children now their games suspend, To see the bier that bears their antient friend: For he was one in all their idle sport, And like a monarch ruled their little court; The pliant bow he form'd, the flying ball, The bat, the wicket, were his labours all; Him now they follow to his grave, and stand, Silent and sad, and gazing, hand in hand; While bending low, their eager eyes explore The mingled relicks of the parish poor: The bell tolls late, the moping owl flies round, Fear marks the flight and magnifies the sound; The busy priest, detain'd by weightier care, Defers his duty till the day of prayer; And waiting long, the crowd retire distrest, To think a poor man's bones should lie unblest.

He returned to Warrnambool to commence practice as an ophthalmologist, pioneering in artificial eye improvements.

In late he decided to move to London and see if he could make it as a poet, or, if that failed, as a doctor. It is his best poem, but the opera is necessarily very different from it, and since Crabbe himself disliked music the nature of the modern fame of "Grimes" would surely have perplexed him.

The twelve years which he spent in this apprenticeship, in an abhorred return for a short time to the cheese and butter, in a brief visit to London, where he had no means to walk the hospitals, and in an attempt to practise with little or no qualification at Aldborough itself, present a rather dismal history of apprenticeship which taught nothing.

But for her Crabbe would probably have subsided, not contentedly but stolidly, into the lot of a Doctor Slop of the time, consoling himself with snuff which he always loved and schnaps to which we have hints that in his youth he was not averse. The young Duke of Rutland, who had been made a strong Tory by Pitt, was fond of letters, and his Duchess Isabel, who was,--like her elder kinswoman, Dryden's Duchess of Ormond-- A daughter of the rose, whose cheeks unite The varying beauties of the red and white, in other words, a Somerset, was one of the most beautiful and gracious women in England.

He was treated with kindness by the Duke and Duchess, but his slightly unpolished manners and his position as a literary dependent made his relations with others in the Duke's house difficult, especially the servants.The village life, and every care that reigns.
