STANFIELD, CLARKSON (1793–1867), marine and landscape painter, sometimes in error called William Clarkson Stanfield, born at Sunderland on 3 Dec. 1793, was son of James Field Stanfield, by his first wife, Mary Hoad, who died in 1801. He was called Clarkson after Thomas Clarkson, the anti-slavery agitator.

Stanfield was born in Sunderland, the son of James Field Stanfield (1749–1824) an Irish-born author, actor and former seaman, and Mary Hoad, an artist and actress. Stanfield was likely to have inherited artistic talent from his mother, who is said to have been an accomplished artist, but died in 1801.

I don't usually review books, but felt inclined to do so in this case. Frederick Marryat pretty much invented the "wooden ships and iron men" novel. Forrester, Pope, O'Brian, and Lambdin are all great, but Marryat had one advantage, he actually served as a commissioned officer in the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Poor Jack provides a realism in its characters and the way they conduct themselves that lacking in most current authors. His characters are readily identifiable with human strengths and frailties but they also evoke early 19th century thought and behavior much different than what we are accustomed to today. Combined with Marryat's obvious dexterity with yarning sea stories this makes a very readable novel that has become historical.
Marryat seems a bit quaint by modern standards, but the writing, grammar and punctuation are much better than in many modern books. "Poor Jack" seems a bit melodramatic, but the book is still a good read. Free, since it's in public domain.
This book contains everything you need for instructions on how to live a good life. Examples abound and are put in perspective. Wonderful book!!!
I've read most of Marryat's books and they are either boring or very readable. This was in the latter category, Typical Victorian novel - clear hero, faces many difficulties, helped by friends, all well in end and hero gets girl and money.
A full complement of morals and sea stories. A vessel for the same. I enjoyed the read, but then, Marryat is one of my favorites. I predicted almost all events, so don't look for many surprises; but rather to enjoy the trip.

I really enjoyed reading Poor Jack. It was different from anything I have read before.
It is a shame that Fred died so long ago he could have made a fortune giving writing lessons. Just think he didn't have a spelling checker.
