The story of the legendary friendship between Wordsworth and Coleridge The friendship between William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge produced dazzling results From it came Lyrical Ballads the volume that kick started the Romantic Movement in England Rarely have two such gifted writers cooperated so closely They met in 17. Most scholars of the Lake Poets read about Wordsworth and his perspective of the events in his celebrated literary friendship with Coleridge Unfortunately Wordsworth biographers usually glorify WW at the expense of STC especially as his opium addiction makes it very easy to criticize SRC s failures at the expense of the sage of Dove Cottage However Richard Holmes s two volume biography while the best we ll ever have on STC perhaps errs in the other direction Holmes covers it in all its complications including all of STC s faults without much of excusing them though Holmes acutely describes the psychology that led to thatThis volume then is probably ideal for readers who want a good biography of both poets and the events that led to Lyrical Ballads and their greatest work It is truly a dual biography the first 100 pages roughly is their lives before their partnership It goes into wrap mode around 1808 when the friendship ruptured and healed with significant scars Therefore if you want a balanced depiction of both poets and their significant work this will do It s admirably comprehensive for 425 pps of text and gets a pretty clear and well drawn portrait of both I m not sure if it would be 5 stars if I had never read other books on WW and STC but it s possible it might
