Another jewel of my poetry collection

S. T. Coleridge was an influential poet of his time. He was one of the founders of the Romantic movement.
Being a chronic opium addict, suffering from depression and poor health, he created intense, vivid and emotional imagery. His poetry is gothic, nostalgic, razor-sharp and evocative. The narrators' performance was heartfelt.
Here's the list of poems on the audio:
1 Kubla Khan
2 The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
3 Love
4 Frost at Midnight
5 This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison
6 Christabel (abridged; no Conclusion)

Excellent reading of better known longer works

If I have one regret with this book they read only his longest pieces, True among them things like The Rime of the ancient mariner. Still I would of liked to hear some of his witty but shorter works. Beyond that it is an excellent introduction to Coleridge. Just dig deeper to really know him.
