The Making of Poetry: Coleridge, the Wordsworths and Their Year of Marvels


Adam Nicolson, illustrated by Tom Hammick

The year was 1797-98, and the trio went to the Quantocks, where C and W produced ‘The Rime of the Ancient Mariner’, ‘Kublai Khan’ and ‘Lyrical Ballads’. Dorothy’s contribution is less realised, but significant. AN’s exploration of this ecstatic year is wonderfully illuminating.
