Coleridge - World Poets series

Coleridge was a magician of the word, an irresistible poet of nature and imagination, a wildly inventive writer of letters, notebooks, essays, critical reviews and a unique poetical autobiography, a political, social and literary journalist, and a marathon talker and walker. His friendship with Wordsworth revolutionised English poetry. He divided his time between the West Country, the Lakes, London and Germany, and drank deeply of the life and landscapes of all of them, while writing, thanks to them, some of the most famous and lovely poems in English.

If you have never experienced Graham Fawcett, you have missed something. His childlike enthusiasm for the greats of the canon is the motor that drives through his two-part, two-hour monologues to a journey’s end of revelation. These are not literary events for those with contemporary attention spans. Fawcett does not give it to us in bite-size chunks. These are big talks, packed full of imagination and research, and ideally suited to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, for Coleridge, like the Ancient Mariner himself (as Fawcett reminded us) simply had to talk. Do go; these are very special occasions.
