This carefully crafted ebook: “The Complete Plays of Samuel Taylor Coleridge” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834) was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He wrote the poems The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan, as well as the major prose work Biographia Literaria. His critical work, especially on Shakespeare, was highly influential, and he helped introduce German idealist philosophy to English-speaking culture. He coined many familiar words and phrases, including suspension of disbelief. He was a major influence on Emerson, and American transcendentalism. Coleridge is one of the most important figures in English poetry. His poems directly and deeply influenced all the major poets of the age. He was known by his contemporaries as a meticulous craftsman who was more rigorous in his careful reworking of his poems than any other poet, and Southey and Wordsworth were dependent on his professional advice.

Excerpt: ...by drop, My brain dry, make a riddance of the drench Of minutes with a memory in each, Recorded motion, breath or look of hers, Which poured forth would present you one pure glass, Mirror you plain--as God's sea, glassed in gold, His saints--the perfect soul Pompilia 1 Men, You must know that a man gets drunk with truth Stagnant inside him! Oh, they've killed her, Sirs! Can I be calm? Calmly! Each incident Proves, I maintain, that action of the flight For the true thingit was. The first faint scratch O' the stone will test its nature, teach its worth To idiots who name Parian--coprolite. After all, I shall give no glare--at best Only display you certain scattered lights Lamping the rush and roll of the abyss: Nothing but here and there a fire-point pricks Wavelet from wavelet: well I For the first hour We both were silent in the night, I know: Sometimes I did not see nor understand. Blackness engulfed me, --partial stupor, say--Then I would break way, breathe through the surprise. And be aware again, and see who sat In the dark vest with the white face and bands. I said to myself--" I have caught it, I con-ceive The mind o' the mystery: 't is the way they wake And wait, two martyrs somewhere in a tomb Each by each as their blessing was to die; Some signal they are promised and expect, --When to arise before the trumpet scares: So, through the whole course of the world they wait The last day, but so fearless and so safe 1 No otherwise, in safety and not fear, I lie, because she lies too by my side." You know this is not love, Sirs, --it is faith, The feeling that there's God, he reigns and rules Out of this low world: that is all; no harm! At times she drew a soft sigh--music seemed Always to hover just above her lips. Not...

The present volume gathers all of Beckett's texts for theatre, from 1955 to 1984. It includes both the major dramatic works and the short and more compressed texts for the stage and for radio. 'He believes in the cadence, the comma, the bite of word on reality, whatever else he believes; and his devotion to them, he makes clear, is a sufficient focus for the reader's attention. In the modern history of literature he is a unique moral figure, not a dreamer of rose-gardens but a cultivator of what will grow in the waste land, who can make us see the exhilarating design that thorns and yucca share with whatever will grow anywhere.' - Hugh Kenner Contents: Waiting for Godot, Endgame, Happy Days, All That Fall, Acts Without Words, Krapp's Last Tape, Roughs for the Theatre, Embers, Roughs for the Radio, Words and Music, Cascando, Play, Film, The Old Tune, Come and Go, Eh Joe, Breath, Not I, That Time, Footfalls, Ghost Trio,...but the clouds..., A Piece of Monologue, Rockaby, Ohio Impromptu, Quad, Catastrophe, Nacht und Traume, What Where.
