About the author (1985)

Crabbe was a parson as well as a poet. His extraordinariness lay in his power to put mussels, eels, colds, weeds, teapots, and so on, and also whole villages of sympathetically observed characters, into couplets. Benjamin Britten's highly popular opera, Peter Grimes is based on a section of Crabbe's - The Borough (1810).
