    This volume is a compendium of Coleridge s poems I essentially focused my reading on one of them, the longest and, perhaps, the most famous, namely The Rime of the Ancient Mariner The story told is somewhat tortuous a ships gets lost in Antactica, the mariner shoots an albatross, he then has to carry the bird s corpse as a burden, a phantom ship appears and the crew dies Finally the mariner reaches the homeland and is rescued by a hermit.But what really is fascinating about this poem are the images e.g All in a hot and copper sky The bloody sun at noon, Right up above the mast did stand, No bigger than the moon , and even, the sounds and rhythms of Cloredige stanzas, often based on repetitions The Ice was here, the Ice was there, The Ice was all around , or Alone, alone, all, all alone, Alone on a wide wide sea It works like a rocking movement, quite akin to the movement of the waves.In passing, I also stopped at Kubla Khan I believe one verse of all will stay with me That sunny dome those caves of ice

    I feel like a hypocrite adding this, since its a collected edition and I m only really a fan of a few of his poems The thing is, the few I m a fan of are some of the best poems I ve ever read Rime , Aeolian Harp , Frost At Midnight.He could barely contain the imagination he held so close in some of these masterpieces Read him at his best and you won t be dissapointed.He used to walk fervently up the street, conversation companion in tow, talking loudly and forcefully, switching sides every 20 yards or so He d doze off intermittently at social occasions, wake up and go on two hour rants about Kant and Hegel and such, to everyone s rapt attention Sheer power of intellect and a little opium laden imagination sure didn t hurt his place in literary history.At his funeral, Wordsworth, weeping over his grave, said simply this the most Wonderful man I have ever met I m just bummed because there s no italics function here Still, I think you get the drift.

    I mainly read this for the classic poems, while keeping an eye out for any lesser known gems I found The Rime of the Ancient Mariner to be very much deserving of fame I ve never read anything quite like that I m rather late to the party, I know I m pleased that I never had it ruined by having it taught to me in a school, as drudging through it line by line would take away from its immediate punch Christabel was interesting, but felt very much unfinished to me Kubla Khan is utterly sublime in fact, I got this book because I read it and it intrigued me It s abstruse, but I find some new feeling every time I come back to it And as for those lesser known gems argh There aren t many, to be brutally honest The majority of the collection is made up of pleasant enough lines about love, nature, God, and Coleridge s friends, whom he clearly had a great fondness for particularly Charles Lamb My earnest wish when I began was an entire book of Kubla Khans, but alas However, there was one other poem that stood out, called The Pains of Sleep It s a moving depiction of sleep plagued by anxiety, and it made me feel very close to Coleridge in a way that none of the other poems did.

    Coleridge s work ignited my love of poetry The depths and heights of his emotion have significantly influenced my view of the world and have inspired my imagination His greatness as a poet lies in his capacity to create vivid pictures through succinct and unforgettable lines This is a nice collection, and an upgrade from the only works of his that I own an anthology which only included Kublai Khan, Dejection an Ode, and a few of his other works This collection of works contains some of the finest literary achievments of the English language.

    Did Coleridge ever right a word that wasn t great I haven t come across anything he s written, criticism included, that I didn t think was brilliant One of my favorites, hands down.

    No my visionary soul shall dwellOn joys that were no endure to weighThe shame and anguish of the evil day,Wisely forgetful O er the ocean swellSublime of Hope, I seek the cottag d dellWhere Virtue calm with the careless step may stray,And dancing to the moonlight roundelay,The wizard Passions weave an holy spell Eyes that have ach d with Sorrow Ye shall weepTears of doubt mingled joy, like theirs who start From Precipices of distemper d sleep, On which the fierce eyed Fiends, their reveils keep, And see the rising Sun, and feel it dart New rays of pleasance trembling to the heart Pantisocracy I remember studying Coleridge quite a bit in my AP English class last year, particularly The Rime of the Ancient Mariner In fact, I think we really did learn about him than any other Romantic As a result, in my solo studies I decided to give Coleridge a rest for a while, and it has been a year since then so what better time to study him than now I suppose I can compare him to the other Romantics I ve studied Lord Byron and John Keats Now, Coleridge belongs securely in the middle of the two for my personal taste I don t think that anybody can top the beauty of Keats, but I enjoy Coleridge than Byron The main similarity is that beauty and elegant style that makes the Romantics so wonderful as a whole The use of clever rhyme and poignant topics set a clear tone Coleridge does a fantastic job of sticking to this trend.Although I do not think that Coleridge is as sophisticated as Keats, I do think that he definitely had the same skill The same rhymes that would make me stop and ponder with Keats were evident in the poems of Coleridge Where I think the true beauty lies in this case, however, is in this poet s ability to make narrative poetry come alive Anyone who has been reading my reviews for a while should probably know that I don t particularly like narrative poetry, but I can make an exception for Coleridge Rime is a legendary, wonderful poem, as is Kubla Khan and I can bet you that most people that have picked up this collection picked it up for those two poems alone Bet you a million dollars In conclusion, I can t say much about Coleridge I am not as astonished by him as I am with some other poets, but I did not struggle through his works He is enjoyable, and his poems have a lovely flow to them that I find soothing.
