Synopses & Reviews
Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was one of the most versatile minds in European intellectual history, and a shaping influence in the development of English poetry. As a radical young poet in the years following the French revolution, he collaborated with Wordsworth in Lyrical Ballads
(1798) and was by turns a dramatist, political journalist, lecturer, and religious thinker. Included in this volume are Kubla Khan
, and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
, as well as such blank-verse "conversation" poems as The Eolian Harp
, This Lime Tree Bower
, My Prison
, and Frost at Midnight
. An accessible and informative Notes and Introduction further illuminate the work of one of the most significant poets of the Romantic period.
