The Deserted Village is, in this interpretation, "depoliticised"—an act that was reinforced The deserted village book nineteenth-century interpretations produced by Thomas Babington Macaulay and two of Goldsmith's biographers. But now the sounds of population fail: No cheerful murmurs fluctuate in the gale, No busy steps the grass-grown footway tread, But all the bloomy flush of life is fled; All but yon widow'd solitary thing, That feebly bends beside the plashy spring: She, wretched matron, forced The deserted village book age, for bread, To strip the brook with mantling cresses spread To pick her wintry faggot from the thorn, To seek her nightly shed and weep till morn; She only left of all the harmless train, The sad historian of the pensive plain. Ye friends to truth, ye statesmen, who survey The rich man's joys increase, the poor's decay, 'Tis yours to judge how wide the limits stand Between a splendid and a happy land. No conversion work was ever carried out and the quarry now exists, preserved by the still air and serves as a snapshot of Wiltshire's quarrying past. At his control Despair and anguish fled the struggling soul; Comfort came down the trembling wretch to raise, And his last faltering accents whispered praise.

The only way home was on that twin-rigged sailing ship of his imagination. As some tall cliff that lifts its awful form, Swells from the vale, and midway leaves the storm, Though round its breast the rolling clouds are spread, Eternal sunshine settles on its head. How do thy potions, with insidious joy, Diffuse their pleasures only to destroy! At the eastern end of the site, the village street runs along what was a dam to hold back a millpond; a small watermill once stood at the far end.

If to the city sped-what waits him there? Picture: Norfolk Museums Service Once the village had gone, the lord often built a mansion on or near the site. It exists because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from people in all walks of life. E'en now, perhaps, by cold and hunger led, At proud men's doors they ask a little bread!

Political radicals, such as Thomas Spence and John Thelwall quoted The Deserted Village in their own works, as did a number of other writers. Pleased with his guests, the good man learned to glow, And quite forgot their vices in their woe; Careless their merits or their faults to scan, His pity gave ere charity began.

Deserted Village anthologies

Inonly The deserted village book peasants were recorded in the Domesday Book and the village paid a modest amount of taxation inwhich declined as the community continued to shrink in the 15th century.

Along both sides of the street can be seen banks and ditches separating individual house plots. Thy The deserted village book are fled, and all thy charms withdrawn; Amidst thy bowers the tyrant's hand is seen, And desolation saddens all thy green: One only master grasps the whole domain, And half a tillage stints thy smiling plain: No more thy glassy brook reflects the day, But The deserted village book with sedges works its weedy way; Along thy glades a solitary guest, The hollow-sounding bittern guards its nest; Amidst thy desert walks the lapwing flies, And tires their echoes with unvaried cries.

A time there was, ere England's griefs began, When every rood of ground maintain'd its man; For him light labour spread her wholesome store, Just gave what life required, but gave no more: His best companions, innocence and health; And his best riches, ignorance of wealth.

To see profusion, that he must not The deserted village book To see ten thousand baneful arts combined To pamper luxury, and thin mankind; To see each joy the sons of pleasure know, Extorted from his fellow-creature's woe.

The service past, around the pious man, With ready zeal each honest rustic The deserted village book E'en children follow'd with endearing wile, And pluck'd his gown, to share the good man's smile His ready smile a parent's warmth express'd, Their welfare pleased him, and their cares distress'd To them his heart, his love, his griefs, were given, But all his serious thoughts had rest in heaven.

Far different there from all that charm'd before, The various terrors of that horrid shore; Those blazing suns that dart a downward ray, And fiercely shed intolerable day; Those matted woods where birds forget to sing, But silent-bats in drowsy clusters cling; Those poisonous fields with rank luxuriance crown'd, Where the dark scorpion gathers death around; Where at each step the stranger fears to wake The rattling terrors of the vengeful snake; Where crouching tigers wait their hapless prey, And savage men more murderous still than they; While oft in whirls the mad tornado flies, Mingling the ravaged landscape with the skies.

The Great Barn was built in with the church tower converted into a folly soon afterwards. Proud swells the tide with loads of freighted ore, And shouting Folly hails them from her shore; Hoards even beyond the miser's wish abound, And rich men flock from all the world around.

The village has been hidden from the public ever since. Those gentle hours that plenty bade to bloom, Those calm desires that asked but little room, Those healthful sports that graced the peaceful scene, Lived in each look, and brightened all the green; These, far departing, seek a kinder shore, And rural mirth and manners are no more.

It is an example of georgic and pastoral poetry. Here, while the courtier glitters in brocade, There the pale artist plies the sickly trade; Here, while the proud their long-drawn pomp display, There the black gibbet glooms beside the way; The dome where pleasure holds her midnight reign, Here, richly deck'd, admits the gorgeous train; Tumultuous grandeur crowds the blazing square, The rattling chariots clash, the torches glare.

References to the poem, and particularly its ominous "Ill fares the land" warning, have appeared in a number of other contexts. A typical peasant house may have had a low, stone foundation wall, but was built mainly of timber and wattle and daub, with a thatched roof, which either decayed or was carried away to be recycled when the village was abandoned.

This problem was made worst when the peasant occupiers tried to adjust their farming by bringing in more animals which, in turn, lead to disputes with neighbours over so called grazing rights.
