  • Coleridge's Rime Of The Ancient Mariner
    1,350 words
    English lyrical poet, critic, and philosopher, whose LYRICAL BALLADS, written with William Wordsworth, started the English Romantic movement. Although Coleridge's poetic achievement was small in quantity, his metaphysical anxiety, anticipating modern existentialism, has gained him reputation as an authentic visionary. Shelley called him "hooded eagle among blinking owls."The influence of Coleridge, like that of Bentham, extends far beyond those who share in the peculiarities of his religious or ...
  • Stately Pleasure Dome Decree

Through the description of the visions of Kubla Khan's palace and the speaker's visions the poem tells of the creation of an enchanting beautiful world as the result of po...
  • Mariner In The Poem
    902 words
    Rime of The Ancient Mariner Coleridge's poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is wrote in a way that the reader is expected to temporarily allow him or herself to believe it to be able to understand it. The poem itself is about a Mariner who is telling his tale of sin and forgiveness by God to a man referred to as the 'Wedding Guest. ' The Mariner is supposedly responsible for the death of all of the crew on his ship because of his killing of a creature which was to bring them the wind that they ...
  • Coleridge's Own Voice
    3,708 words
    Coleridge and the Explosion of Voice Coleridge is so often described in terms which are akin to the word, "explosive", and by all accounts he was at times an unusually dynamic, charismatic and unpredictable person. His writings themselves could also be termed "explosive" merely from their physical form; a fragmented mass, some pieces finished but most not, much of his writing subject to procrastination or eventual change of mind. Today I want to address a moment in his life which produced, as Ri...
  • Peacefulness And Beauty Of Nature
    376 words
    Samuel Coleridge: Frost at Midnight In the poem, "Frost at Midnight", Samuel Coleridge uses his creative imagery and fascination with nature to create a beautiful picture of the gifts God has given him and us. He uses a style of prose, which has no particular rhyme or meter. This could be used to help convey his meaning in a more story like way. The poem is broken down into four paragraphs of varying length and all, primarily, deal with nature. The poem starts out in a slow and somber mood as he...
  • Coleridge's Treatment Of The Mariner
    2,035 words
    Question: How does any writer on the course treat the figure of the social outcast or outsider For the purposes of this assignment I will be examining two of Coleridge's most notable poetic works; The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan. From The Rime I will be examining the poets treatment of the Mariner himself and from Kubla Khan both Kubla Khan and the unnamed poetic presence that is makes its self know at end of the poem.

  • 05 Creation Of Kubla Kahn
    343 words
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poem "Kubla Kahn" is an example of imaginative poetry due to an opium addiction. This poem creates its own kingdom and paradise while Coleridge expresses his ideas of Heaven and Hell through his own drug induced thoughts and opinions. Coleridge paints the picture of a kingdom, Xanadu, and the surrounding scenery is described with a heavenly, dreamlike vividness that can only result from smoking a little too much opium. This kingdom has a "pleasure dome" that was created...
  • Coleridge's Mind
    1,640 words
    A single inanimate object, The Eolian Harp, sends Coleridge flitting in, out, over and through introspection. The trajectory of the poem may be plotted as follows: terrestrial observations, fixation upon single terrestrial item (i.e. the harp), exulting single item into transcendence, an astral purview of the terrestrial via the item, reassessment of mind frame, guilt and denunciation of transcendent thought, and finally, remorse and dismissal of all preceding drivel (as to adequately and respec...
  • Poems As Kubla Khan
    5,725 words
    Kubla Khan If a man could pass thro' Paradise in a Dream, & have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his Soul had really been there, & found that flower in his hand when he awoke - Aye! and what then (CN, 4287) Kubla Khan is a fascinating and exasperating poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (. Almost everyone who has read it, has been charmed by its magic. It must surely be true that no poem of comparable length in English or any other language has been the subject of so much critical...

    971 words
    Part 1 (a) The Rime of the Ancyent Mariner is a poem directly inspired by the events occurring in its author's own life.

Adopting an author-centred approach to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's, The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere, reveals powerful influences in the life of the author which he sought to expound to a wider and s...
  • Ballad Form
    280 words
    Show how the ballad form is important to the effects achieved The ballad is a narrative poem, which is often of 'folk origin'. They normally consist of simple stanzas, which complements that they were traditionally sung. They were mostly communicated orally, thus the basic form they take made them easier to remember. Another feature of the ballad is it's meaning; they often tell a story with a moral element. The Lyrical Ballads are a collection of poems by William Wordsworth and Samuel Coleridge...
