George Crabbe was born in Suffolk, apprenticed as an apothecary, and planned to be a doctor, but decided to move to London to become a writer. Destitute and depressed, he wrote a letter of appeal to Edmund Burke, who found promise in Crabbe's poetry and helped him to publish and become ordained as a chaplain. Crabbe wrote in various genres, but was most successful as a poet, writing satire, social commentary, and narrative poems, generally in heroic couplets; his most famous poem was The Village. At the height of his fame, he stopped publishing poetry for twenty-two years, instead regularly burning what he did write and concentrating on his parish duties and his study of botany. After the hiatus, his work was well-received, but considered to be uninspired and workmanlike.
