From Publishers Weekly
"It is an ancient Mariner, and he stoppeth one of thee...." Although these ominous lines perennially instill fear of final exams and term papers in the minds of high school students and Romantic English majors, they're not often remembered by adults. Mason's reading of Coleridge's 1796 epic poem is at once hypnotic and stirring. The Academy Award-nominated actor reads the chilling tale involving clashes with sea monsters, a boat swarming with zombies and a dice game with Death in an authoritative English accent. Like the ocean surrounding the Mariner's ship, his voice ebbs and flows with the imaginative poem's various heights. He quickly rattles off, "water, water, every where, and all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink" but gently whispers "And I had done an hellish thing, and...

Book Description
With this collection, renowned Colridge biographer, Richard Holmes, casts new light on the poets sensibilities and accomplishments. Holmes divides the poems into eight categories of theme and genre, dispeling the myth of Coleridge as "the metaphysical dreamer" and rediscovering him as a Romantic autobiographer of tremendous power and range.

At the heart of Selected Poems are the Conversation Poems, a unified and beautifully crafted autobiographical sequence written over a period of twelve years. A series of little-known love poems to Asra, which combine understated passion and desperate directness, reflect the depths of Coleridge's feelings for Sara Hutchinson, his unattainable lifelong love. The volume also includes the robust Hill Walking Poems, and the secret agony of the Confessional Poems, as well as...

Book Description
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.

From School Library Journal
Grade 5 Up-This skillful introduction opens with an overview of Coleridge's life and poetry, followed by 18 works (or parts of works). Engell includes many of the English poet's most significant pieces, although "Dejection: An Ode"-important enough to mention in the introduction-is omitted. The notes and footnotes (defining obscure terms) accompanying each poem will be helpful to readers tackling the poet's challenging work. Chan's enchanting paintings embellish the text and do a nice job of capturing the mood of the poetry without dominating it. A useful but small index concludes the book. Little material for younger students focuses on Coleridge, making this a useful purchase for any collection.Julie Roach, Malden Public Library, Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the...


Coleridge and Textual Instability
Jack Stillinger

May 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Jack Stillinger establishes and documents the existence of numerous different authoritative versions of Coleridge's best-known poems: sixteen or more of The Eolian Harp, for example, eighteen of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and comparable numbers for This Lime-Tree Bower, Frost at
Midnight, Kubla Khan, Christabel, and Dejection: An Ode. Such multiplicity of versions raises interesting theoretical and practical questions about the constitution of the Coleridge canon, the ontological identity of any specific work in the canon, the editorial treatment of Coleridge's works, and
the ways in which multiple versions complicate interpretation of the poems as a unified (or, as the case may be, disunified) body of work. Providing much new information about the texts and production of Coleridge's major poems,...

Book Description
The poems that Coleridge wrote after his "golden" period are seldom studied or anthologized. Yet many of these later poems are of quality and interest, addressing such universal themes as the nature of self and the experience of unrequited love. Paley examines the later verse in the context of
Coleridge's oeuvre. He discusses its distinguishing characteristics, and looks at why the poet felt he had to develop distinctively different modes of writing for these works.
