Description

This collection of Coleridge's finest poetry reveals the diversity and versatility that are characteristic of his work, from early politically-inspired sonnets to an epitaph he composed for himself in the penultimate year of his life. At the centre of the collection are those mature poems which Coleridge wrote while enjoying the intense friendship of William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy. These include "Fears in Solitude", "The Lime Tree Bower My Prison" and "Frost at Midnight". "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is presented in full, along with the later, better-known version. The collection as a whole clearly shows Coleridge to be one of the most significant figures in the development of English Romantic poetry.show more
