This Penguin English Poets edition of the poetry of Coleridge (1772-1834) contains the final texts of all the poems published in the poet's lifetime, together with a substantial selection from the verse still in manuscripton his death, William Keach's notes draw attention to significant variants, and important earlier versions of 'Monody on the Death of Chatterton', 'the Eolian Harp', the Rime of the Ancient Mariner' and 'Dejection: An Ode' are included in full. The poems are arranged in chronological order of composition, the best way of presenting a poet's work in Coleridge's view, as it preserves 'the interest which arises from watching the progress, maturity and even the decay of genius'.

Simple words, a variety of literary techniques, and multiple possible interpretations have made it a favorite teaching poem. This book is a School of Tomorrow Grade 12, English 4 PACE Resource Book.
