[S I 1967] GRIGSON, Geoffrey, ed. The English Year, from Diaries and Letters. Oxf UP (1967). xvi, 186 pp. Il.

  • Introduction: "English writers during the last two centuries have often left . . . an immediate record--of observations, of something seen, something sensed, something or other felt and enjoyed, in the country around them, day after day, month after month, through the year. Here then is a composite journal of the English year chosen from such records, by poets . . . ; by one or two painters; and by other writers." The book can be read "for gladness or for its union with sadness (read the young C recording . . . how---on 25 July---he and the Ws had drunk tea on the island in Grasmere and then danced by the light of their bonfire of fir-cones . . .)." Of the 31 authors drawn upon, C (notebooks and letters) is quoted 39 times on 37 dates, exceeded only by Ruskin on 49, Gerard Manley Hopkins on 56, Francis Kilvert on 67, DW on 89, Gilbert White on 138.

Finally she admits that her idea "doesn't work too well with this poem," and then offers her next idea: "C's poem was written so he could depict life in a behavioristic society. . . . C's AM is a study of life in a Skinner Box."
  • Endnote: "Charles Larson hopes to spend part of the summer finishing his series of some 36 Clara LePage dialogues for a book to be called Academia Nuts."

  • Chapter 45 discusses the voyages of Captain John Davis, 1591-93, through the Strait of Magellan into the Pacific. "The Southern Voyage of John Davis appeared in Hakluyt's edition of 1600. . . . // John Davis and the Mariner have these in common: a voyage to the Black South, the murder of a bird or birds, the nemesis which follows, the drift through the tropics, the rotting ship, the curses of dying men. Lines 236-9 are particularly resonant of the Elizabethan voyage: [quotes the lines]." John Livingston Lowes, in The Road to Xanadu, traced sources and influences on C's poem, but he "did not, apparently, consider the likelihood that Davis's voyage to the Strait gave C the backbone for his poem" (p 90).
  • In Tierra del Fuego (chapter 53), the author saw "gulls, giant petrels and black-browed albatrosses wheeling round the ferry as she crawled crabwise across the tide and short breaking seas. Taking off, the albatrosses spread themselves to the wind, their huge webs paddling the water, streaming spray until the cutting edge of their wings lifted them clear. // 'Instead of the Cross, the Albatross / About my neck was hung' [The RAM 141-2] // Nathaniel Hawthorne once saw in a museum a stuffed Great Wandering Albatross, with its wingspan of twelve feet, and the idea of such a bird round the Mariner's neck struck him as yet another instance of the poem's absurdity. But C's albatross was a much smaller bird." Quotes from Captain Shelvocke's voyage the passage about the shooting of the "disconsolate Black Albitross ." But "there are two contenders and I saw them both on Tierra del Fuego: the Sooty Albatross, a shy bird, smoke-grey all over and known to sailors as the Stinkpot or Prophet; or, less likely, the Black-browed Albatross or Mollymauk, fearless and attached to human company" (pp 112-13).

[S I 1983] RANDALL, Harry, ed. Minor Masterpieces: An Anthology of Juvenilia by Twelve Giants of English Literature. Suggested and introduced by Harry Randall. Illustrated by Betty Beeby. Alden, MI: Talponia Press (1983). xii, 89 pp. 229 x 155mm. Ltd edn, number 302 of 1160 copies.

  • Each selection accompanied by full-page drawing printed in red. Includes Coleridge's Monody on the Death of Chatterton, the version dating from his 16th year. Headnote (ca 275 words) focuses on the earliest poetry of Coleridge: "He began writing poetry when he was a young boy and continued with enough diligence to fill more than a thousand printed pages. From the beginning it varied far more widely in form, subject, and mood than his few best known poems suggest. Some of it is high spirited and quite funny, in striking contrast to the Coleridge of popular imagination."
  • The illustration shows Coleridge at his desk writing the Monody. In the last stanza of the Monody, Coleridge pictures Chatterton soaring through heaven, enrapturing angels with his strain: "Grant me, like thee, the lyre to sound, / Like thee, with fire divine to glow" The images in the illustration are drawn from this stanza: above Coleridge's head float three enraptured angels and a male figure "sounding a lyre.".

  • A systematic treatment of C's poetics and his system of thought, in which three elements play vitally significant roles: the theory of the unconsciousness, the theory of polarity, and the theory of double touch. The principles of C's poetics and criticism are relevant combinations of these three theories.
  • This book consists of seven closely related chapters. A concise introduction is followed by the first chapter, in which the concept of the unconscious is traced from ancient philosophers through continental philosophers to Hartley, showing how C was affected by them. In chapter 2 the theory of polarity is delineated, and the concept of juxtaposition is explained. In chapter 3, what we call three main visionary poems are interpreted, and their construction is minutely analyzed in terms of polarity. In addition, the relationship between poetry and music is discussed using KK as an example. In chapter 4, these three main poems are interpreted in terms of the theory of double touch. Chapter 5 deals with the process of the formation of C's thought, showing how C was affected by ancient thought and German thought, and especially by Schiller. Chapter 6 traces the origin and development of C's idea of Imagination in relation to fancy and intuition. After that, the philosophical deduction of Imagination is made, and C's philosophical system of Logosophia is also explained. In the last chapter, C's influences upon T S Eliot, E A Poe, and Herbert Read are discussed. (NT) Frontispiece plate is 1795 Vandyke portrait.

  • The 934 items (14 for 1871-99, 196 for 1900-39, 724 for 1940-86) include biographical and critical studies (in books--including literary histories, encyclopedias, and anthologies--periodicals, and oral papers delivered at conferences), book reviews, translations (in anthologies, and in selected editions of Coleridge's works?). Some of the items--particularly those by non-Japanese authors--are in English though in Japanese publications. The items are listed chronologically, grouped according to the Japanese dating system based on the reign of succeeding emperors: the Meiji Era (1867-1911), the Taisho Era (1912-26), and the Showa Era (1926-present). Includes a Preface (pp 1-14, with tribute to Okamoto as first Japanese C bibliographer [1955-56, qv]), an index of authors and other persons (pp 77-85), a general (topical) index (pp 86-8), an index of Coleridge's works treated (50 of them, pp 89-90), and an afterword (p 91).
  • From Miss Yumiko Okamura's "summarized translation" of the Preface and additional remarks by Professor Katsurada: "As a young scholar, when I heard a friend talking passionately about STC's poetry and his theory of literature, I was so inspired and impressed that I decided to study C--especially his poetry. At that time, absorbed in the doctrines of Kitaro Nishida, a Japanese philosopher, I was seeking a point of contact between literature and philosophy. Since then, for nearly 60 years, I have devoted myself to the study of C with all my heart. ... Over the years as I continued to publish the results of my research on C, I also collected writings on C published by others, as if I were succeeding to Professor Okamoto's bibliographical work. I soon became aware that these papers amounted to a very large number. [After his death in 1992, Professor Katsurada's C Collection was deposited in the Library of Jissen Women's University.] So in 1971 I began to publish supplements to Professor Okamoto's work. ... At last I decided that it was time to put them all in order, and so this Synthetic List of Academic Works on C in Japan (1986) has come into existence. ... Finally, I thank Professor Walter B. Crawford very much for giving us an opportunity to introduce Japanese studies on C to the rest of the world through his forthcoming volume III of the C Bibliography."
  • The Coleridge Bibliography (volumes II-III, 1983--C6499) and this Supplement (S I 1996 and passim) contain a selection of 223 of the 450 Japanese items in the computer files, as compared to the 600-700 (NT) comparable items in Professor Katsurada's Bibliography. Considering the great scope and quantity of Japanese scholarship on C, scholars will welcome the comprehensive English language bibliography of C in Japan now in progress under the direction of Professor Nobuo Takayama of Taisho University, Tokyo.

  • Nobuo Takayama's annotation (condensed): C s poems of the annus mirabilis, especially The RAM, KK, and Christabel, are sometimes regarded as rare gems made possible by the suppression of his speculative genius for a short miraculous season. In the author's view, however, that his miraculous poems were made possible by C's philosophic struggle, or his struggle as a whole man, to find a solution to the problem of how to overcome the tragic condition in which man finds himself as a result of what Christianity has called "original sin." These poems seem to be densely packed with C's earnest reflection on the problem of original sin, and it seems to be his admission of failure to solve this problem that turned him from poetry to criticism.
  • As a critic C retained what he had possessed as a poet and never lost sight of the problem he had tackled in his poems. All the germs of his later thought were latent in his poems of the annus mirabilis: what he later accomplished as a critic and philosopher was the natural outcome of what he had conceived as a poet in his youth. The author deals with the three great poems from that viewpoint, and in the last chapter, which treats C's verse letter to Sara Hutchinson, the original version of Dejection, he considers how C came to accept his failure.
  • In the conclusion, the author points out that the problem C grappled with was one which has confronted mankind in all ages and places. Perhaps C could never outgrow his sense of loss because he was "Too soon transplanted. ere [his] soul had fix'd / Its first domestic loves" and spent the following nine years in Christ's Hospital as a bluecoat boy. It is made clear in recent psycho-biological researches that premature or inappropriate sudden disruption of bonds of attachment may lead to psychological disturbances, physiological disorganization, and ill health. Regression, the sense of helplessness. sleep disturbances and nightmares, all that characterized C's life, are also attendant upon separation. Even C's opium addiction cannot be seen as unrelated to his early experience, for close similarities are detected between the distress symptoms that result from narcotic withdrawal and those that arise following severance of social bonds. This weakness of C, however, proved to be his strength at the same time. It enabled him to preserve an acute consciousness of a vital problem for mankind to which ordinary people grow too dull to pay attention with the passage of years. It seems that C what he struggled not only with a universal problem among mankind but one for which it is impossible for man to find a final solution. And this may be the reason he is now steadily rising in public estimation in all his roles, as poet, critic, theologian, psychologist, etc. He was, as it were, bearing a heavy burden in behalf of mankind.

In the chapter on "Preparation for Learning Lucid Dreaming," the section headed "Communiqué from the dream world" begins with the "dumbed-down" paraphrase on the right (p 23).

"If a man could pass thro' 
Paradise in a Dream, & 
have a flower presented to 
him as a pledge that his 
Soul had really been there, 
& found that flower in his 
hand when he awoke-- 
Aye! and what then?"

"What if you slept, and what if 
in your sleep you dreamed, and 
what if in your dream you went 
to heaven and there you plucked 
a strange and beautiful flower, 
and what if when you awoke you 
had the flower in your hand? 
Ah, what then?"
