Selected Poems

Sending request ...


The poems and poem fragments selected by Epson and Pirie represent the very best of Coleridges work. Many of Coleridge's poems are astounding successes, but for everyone of these there are also abysmal failures making it difficult for the layman to approach this leading Romantic without guidance. This volume contains the astounding successes, the guidance and none of the failures.
