Both radicals in politics, poetry, and religion // Coleridge becomes a Unitarian (views a god as a omnipresent spirit within all things, and the only spirit) 1 Wednesday, February 3, 2016 3. Tension rises after Coleridge spends much time with Wordsworth and realizes that he does not match up to his famous friend. a) Coleridge even casts this idea that he is not good enough compared to Wordsworth onto his child’s life in Frosted Midnight // but he is proud of his work and how he turns out as a poet. C. Opium Addiction 1. developed a addiction very young and carries it throughout his entire life 2. This becomes associated with his self made image. Known to not live up to his potential because of the opium D. The Eolian Harp 1. resembles Wordsworth and is a conversation poem. Coleridge actually coined this term and ti was adopted by Wordsworth a) always spoken from a “I” figured to someone else, there is someone listening internally. b) makes a connection through flowers to Milton’s Paradise Lost, associating his cottage with eden. // But paradise lost is also about the FALL of eden, not a picture perfect eden c) his placement of “eve” in the poem also helps make the connection to Paradise Lost, in case you miss the flower reference d) it is safe to say the poem is an attempt to seduce sara into sleeping with him 2 Monday, February 1, 2016 0201 Lecture Notes • Notes on poetic form: - Meter: - Blank Verse: “Intern Abbey” I.

Number of feet per line: - monometer: one feet - dimeter: two feet - trimeter: three feet - tetrameter: four feet - pentameter: five feet - hexameter: six feet II. Verses: much of Wordsworth’s poem will state something in the written lines, but will have an opposing tone when read. III. Wordsworth and nature: 1 Monday, February 1, 2016 A. has an incredible ability to focus in on man as a material object within nature, and also as a conscious being 1. There is a hard distinction between death and life (we are seven) 2. What is mans relation to the world. B. A strange and subtle connection between decomposition of the dead and nature IV. Reflection on how much Wordsworth has changed after five years A. Wordsworth recognizing that he is part of the passing of time. Eventually he will die and decompose in the ground like everyone else and other parts of nature B. Blood/Heart/Mind are held parallel. Mind was chosen specifically rather than brain. 2
