Shelves: poetshere
He went like one that hath been stunn'd,
And is of sense forlorn:
A sadder and a wiser man
He rose the morrow morn


This last week certainly left me sadder and wiser, eager to peer out Deleuze's window but resigned to the work and joy which keep me planted. Coleridge served as an exemplary anchor as I was tossed by the Fates. There is always concern, often some comfort. Too often, to be ethical, one is an asshole. I have often felt like the Rime's wedding-guest, you can't just outpace the implication

The musicality of Christabel is quite remarkably. The poem is written in iambic tetrameters with a fixed rhyme scheme, but it doesn't sound sing-songy. Somehow Coleridge is able to give the poem its correct atmosphere without having rhyme ruin it in a way that reminds me of 18th-century translations of Epic poems.

Speaking specifically of Christabel, whoever, I was rather taken aback by the ending. Not quite sure what that was even now.

I love Christabel!!!! I never thought that a literary work, never imagined that the written word could inspire so much fear and wonder in a reader like myself. The tale of Christabel is seductive and at the same time horrific; such a combination, as i have witnessed in what for me is Coleridge's finest work, produces the fantastic, wonderful, and sublime.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, critic, and philosopher who was, along with his friend William Wordsworth, one of the founders of the Romantic Movement in England and one of the Lake Poets. He is probably best known for his poems The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan, as well as his major prose work Biographia Literaria.
