Lyrical Ballads

Lyrical Ballads

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth


Twenty-three poems that reworked English poetry
Wordsworth and Coleridge composed this robust collection of poetry in the course of their younger and intimate friendship. Reproducing the 1st version of 1798, this version of Lyrical Ballads permits glossy readers to recapture the book's unique influence. In those poems—including Wordsworth's "Lines written a number of miles above Tintern Abbey" and Coleridge's "The Rime of the Ancyent Marinere"—the poets exercised new energies and unfolded new topics.
