Coleridge Three Extraordinary Years

The Coleridge’s at Stowey by Bethany Askew

Author Bethany Askew presents ‘Three Extraordinary Years: The Coleridge’s at Stowey’. Samuel Taylor Coleridge moved to Nether Stowey in Somerset at the end of 1796. The poetry he wrote here is some of the most beautiful and famous in the English language. This fascinating talk explores the inspiration behind the poetry: his humble cottage, the beautiful countryside of the Quantock hills, and his relationships with his wife, Sara and William and Dorothy Wordsworth.
