    It was the setting of his verse breakthrough, of the annus mirabilis in which most of his enduring poems were written. I build all my poetic pretentions on the Religious Musings". Coleridge believed that the Tatars were violent, and that their culture was opposite to the civilised Chinese. A communitarian ideal remained essential to his writing, as to the life he now proposed to live.

    I regulated all my creeds by my conceptions not by my sight—even at that age. This became the germ of a momentous project in which Wordsworth acted as collaborator. When discussing Christabel, Rime of the Ancient Mariner and "Kubla Khan", an anonymous reviewer in the October The Church Quarterly Review claimed, "In these poems Coleridge achieves a mastery of language and rhythm which is nowhere else conspicuously evident in him. But oh!

    The arduous and ultimately Coleridge the poet book enterprise of The Watchman led him to seek a steady haven where he might work and write in sympathetic surroundings. O'er waken'd realms Philosophers and Bards Spread in concentric circles: they whose souls, Conscious of their high dignities from God, Brook not Wealth's rivalry! The finite properties of the constructed walls of Xanadu are contrasted with the infinite properties of the natural caves through which the river runs. As followers of the sun, the Tatar are connected to a tradition that describes Cain as founding a city of sun worshippers and that people in Asia would build gardens in remembrance of the lost Eden.

Coleridge was preeminently responsible for importing the new German critical philosophy of Immanuel Kant and Friedrich von Schelling; his associated discussion of imagination remains a fixture of institutional criticism while his occasional notations on language proved seminal for the foundation and development of Cambridge English in the s.

In tone, the poem juxtaposes quiet Coleridge the poet book noise Coleridge, when composing the poem, believed in a connection between nature and the divine but believed that the only dome that should serve as the top of a temple was the sky. Eliot in England and Robert Frost in America elaborated variously on the conversational convention.

The second stanza is not necessarily part of the original dream and refers to the dream in the past tense. Resolving conflicted feelings into whole response occupies much of his best verse, and his Coleridge the poet book philosophical synthesis represents a comparable effort of resolution.

The contrasts between the Coleridge the poet book halves of the poem Coleridge had spent 18 years under the roof of the Gillman family, who built an addition onto their home to accommodate the poet.

Wordsworth frankly disliked it after the reviews came in, but Lamb led the way in appreciating its odd mix of romance and realism. And over it is cast the glamour, enhanced beyond all reckoning in the dream, of the remote in time and space — that visionary presence of a vague and gorgeous and mysterious Past which brooded, as Coleridge read, above the inscrutable Nile, and domed pavilions in Cashmere, and the vanished stateliness of Xanadu.

We find ourselves in a medieval scene "The hound forgot the hand of her lord" and the universality of the allegory seems compromised, a dimension lost. All told, this poem contains eleven references to the sun, many of which signify the Christian conception of a wrathful, vengeful God.

It has been suggested that this reflects De Quincey's own experiences more than Coleridge's. But he was also very funny and self-mocking; and, one should add, immensely lovable.

In a trance, the mariner hears two spirits discussing his voyage and penance, and learns that the ship is being powered supernaturally: The air is cut away before, And closes from behind. This conjunction was where Coleridge staked his claim. Both proved open to suggestion; both grew as poets through their conversations.

Fountains are often symbolic of the inception of life, and in this case may represent forceful creativity. InVirginia Radley considered Wordsworth and his sister as an important influence to Coleridge writing a great poem: "Almost daily social intercourse with this remarkable brother and sister seemed to provide the catalyst to greatness, for it is during this period that Coleridge conceived his greatest poems, 'Christabel,' 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,' and 'Kubla Khan,' poems so distinctive and so different from his others that many generations of readers know Coleridge solely through them.

I build all my poetic pretentions on the Religious Musings". He awoke hours later to record the extraordinary train of images which arose during his opiated stupor. One can accept these interpretations of the poem only if one disregards the glosses almost completely. A traditional faith was confirmed through temptation.

Interpretations[ edit ] On a surface level the poem explores a violation of nature and the resulting psychological effects on the mariner and on Coleridge the poet book those who hear him. Their constant companionship on walks, at Alfoxden and elsewhere, gave rise to extended discussion of poetry present and past.

Inverting this pattern, The Making of Poetry opens with a destination and closes with a sea-voyage: the Coleridge the poet book and Coleridge on the packet boat to Germany in Septemberhaving deposited Lyrical Ballads with a radical Bristol publisher.
