The text is filled with prose from pp. 155-686 with a gem in "Aids to Reflection". the poems are lengthy and in today's standards, way too long and wordy. However, I shall always be a fan of "Frost at Midnight" this is a good source to have around, since Coleridge lines are often quoted.

Despite his unfortunate opium addiction and his tendency to leave works unfinished, Coleridge remains my favorite half of the Lyrical Ballads pair.

Great autobiographical essay section in the back. Kubla Khan is retains it's haunting allure after so many reads.

I blame Steve Coogan's movie THE TRIP for this new interest.
