Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Notebooks and Revisions

Jonathan Bate will lead a half-day session on Coleridge’s notebooks and poetic revisions. Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s notebooks are the richest and most revelatory of any English writer. We will delve into them. We will also explore the process of drafting and revising of three of his greatest poems: “Kubla Khan”, “The Ancient Mariner”, and “Rejection”.coleridge-notebook
