Overview

As a radical young poet in the years following the French Revolution, Coleridge collaborated with Wordsworth in Lyrical Ballads (1798) and was by turns dramatist, political journalist, lecturer, and religious thinker. This edition includes his two most famous poems, 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. Not least of the attractions of Heather Jackson's selection is the earlier version of the Rime which she presents in full, along with the later, better-known version. Demonstrating the diversity characteristic of Coleridge's work, from early politically-inspired sonnets to an epitaph he composed for himself shortly before his death, this substantial collection is supplemented by an introduction and notes.
