Coleridge, Samuel Taylor, Gardner, Martin, Gardner, Martin
Samuel Taylor Coleridge's greatest work, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, is utterly unique, unlike any other ballad. No narrative poem has rivalled it in combining scenes of terror with scenes of incomparable beauty. Although enormously popular in the nineteenth century, it is seldom read or studied today. This annotated version by Martin Gardner will help to renew the appreciation and deepen the understanding of Coleridge's unjustly neglected masterpiece. Preceding the poem is a biographical sketch of the great poet, which emphasises those aspects of his many-sided life and personality that have the strongest bearing on the poem, especially on circumstances surrounding its composition.Coleridge, Samuel Taylor is the author of 'Annotated Ancient Mariner The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', published 2003 under ISBN 9781591021254 and ISBN 1591021251.
