About the Author

Born in Ottery St. Mary, England, in 1772, Samuel Taylor Coleridge studied revolutionary ideas at Cambridge before leaving to enlist in the Dragoons. After his plans to start a communist society in the United States with his friend Robert Southey, later named poet laureate of England, were botched, mostrar mais Coleridge instead turned his attention to teaching and journalism in Bristol. Coleridge married Southey's sister-in-law Sara Fricker, and they moved to Nether Stowey, where they became close friends with William and Dorothy Wordsworth. From this friendship a new poetry emerged, one that focused on Neoclassic artificiality. In later years, their relationship became strained, partly due to Coleridge's moral collapse brought on by opium use, but more importantly because of his rejection of Wordworth's animistic views of nature. In 1809, Coleridge began a weekly paper, The Friend, and settled in London, writing and lecturing. In 1816, he published Kubla Kahn. Coleridge reported that he composed this brief fragment, considered by many to be one of the best poems ever written lyrically and metrically, while under the influence of opium, and that he mentally lost the remainder of the poem when he roused himself to answer an ill-timed knock at his door. Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Christabel, and his sonnet Ozymandias are all respected as inventive and widely influential Romantic pieces. Coleridge's prose works, especially Biographia Literaria, were also broadly read in his day. Coleridge died in 1834. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

The language is beautiful though. The poem isn't entirely my cup of tea though.

This little book contains a lot; a lot to read and a lot to think about. It starts with The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and moves on to Christabel. These were followed by some shorter poems, including, Kubla Khan. There follow some prose extracts by Coleridge which I found interesting. But of most interest to me was Editor Henderson's commentary on the merits of Coleridge poetry. I'll read that again later. The next section is a short biography - what a tortured soul. An Appendix explores his personality, and the book finishes with an Analysis of The Ancient Mariner. Right at the end of the printed matter included is a list of the first 180 titles in the Kings Treasuries series.… (mais)

Probabilmente conoscerete già La ballata del vecchio marinaio: almeno per sentito dire, se anche non l'avete letta. Deriva, infatti, da un commento di Coleridge a La ballata del vecchio marinaio la famosa espressione willing suspension of disbelief, una volontaria sospensione dell'incredulità che permette al lettore di accettare l'elemento soprannaturale di un'opera.

A dispetto della fama del poemetto, però, forse non sapete che è stato fonte di ispirazione per numerosi artisti, da Gustave Doré agli Iron Maiden, da Charles Baudelaire a Carl Barks. Dato che non ho né le conoscenze né le competenze per elencarvi tutto ciò che La ballata del vecchio marinaio ha ispirato, in questa recensione, ve ne darò un assaggio musicale.

Intanto, se volete farvi leggere questo poemetto, vi consiglio di seguire la versione di Richard Burton, David Moore, Ralph Richardson e John Neville.

[Playlist sul mio blog]

Per quanto riguarda le canzoni ispirate a La ballata del vecchio marinaio, vi consiglio S.S dei naufraghi di Vinicio Capossela.

Poi aggiungo Albatross dei Wild Beasts.

E finisco con Rebels of the Sacred Heart dei Flogging Molly.
