Coleridge is the most complex and brilliant, yet the most elusive and intense of the great Romantic writers. This selection of verse and prose displays the extraordinary scope of his mind, the power of his imagination and the virtuosity of his literary gifts. It also reveals that behind the glittering surface of familiar masterpieces - The Ancient Mariner, Kubla Khan, Christabel, the Biographia - there is a great but unknown poet still waiting to be discovered.

Review:

"Kubla Khan." "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner." "The Eolian Harp." Samuel Taylor Coleridge was a genius who wrote some of the greatest poems in the history of the English language. Together with his friend William Wordsworth, he provided the best articulation of Romanticism, as well as some of the most powerful examples of that aesthetic. This collection, from the excellent Everyman's Library Pocket Poets series, includes not only Coleridge's poetry, but also some selections from his insightful essays and letters about poetry. But of course, it's the poems that count the most, as evidenced by this excerpt from one of Coleridge's less legendary works, his beautiful tribute "To William Wordsworth," which was written after hearing his friend give an especially moving reading. These sentiments could easily apply to the author himself: "The tumult rose and ceased: for Peace is nigh / Where Wisdom's voice has found a listening heart."

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.
