Complete works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Hough, Barry; Howard Davis. (Open Book Publishers 2011). Using a new publishing model, this complete book is available open access through Google. Says the publisher's blurb: "Samuel Taylor Coleridge is best known as a great poet and literary theorist, but for one, quite short, period of his life he held real political power - acting as Public Secretary to the British Civil Commissioner in Malta in 1805. This was a formative experience for Coleridge which he later identified as being one of the most instructive in his entire life. In this volume, Barry Hough and Howard Davis show how Coleridge's actions whilst in a position of power differ markedly from the idealism he had advocated before taking office - shedding new light on Coleridge's sense of political and legal morality."

Michael's Church in 1961, with another inscription, 'Stop, Christian passer-by,' etc.)

Sacred to the Memory of
'Poet, Philosopher, Theologian.
This truly great and good man resided for
The last nineteen years of his life,
In this Hamlet.
He quitted 'the body of his death,'
July 25th, 1834,
In the sixty-second year of his age.
Of his profound learning and discursive genius,
His literary works are an imperishable record.
To his private worth,
His social and Christian virtues,
The friends with whom he resided,
During the above period, dedicate this tablet
Under the pressure of a long
And most painful disease,
His disposition was unalterably sweet and angelic.
He was an ever-enduring, ever-loving friend,
The gentlest and kindest teacher,
The most engaging home companion.
'O framed for calmer times and nobler hearts,
O studious poet, eloquent for truth!
Philosopher contemning wealth and death,
Yet docile, child-like, full of life and love.'
On this monumental stone, thy friends inscribe thy worth.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge - Poetry & Biography of the …

He stayed at Bristol with an old friend, Josiah Wade, who did his best to impose a restraint, which Coleridge avoided by various subterfuges. He was treated by a Dr. Daniel, who tried to limit his consumption. From Bristol he went to stay with John Morgan, who had now settled in Calne, Wiltshire. Robinson speaks of the ‘unexampled assiduity and kindness’ of this old friend, whose friendship has hardly received justice from Coleridge's biographers. Coleridge stayed at Calne during a great part of 1815, and he was there in January 1816. He says (29 July 1815) that he has finished the ‘Biographia Literaria,’ and he was at work upon play-writing. During part of this period his friends had almost lost sight of him. On 17 October 1814 Southey wrote to Cottle asking for news of Coleridge, whom he had not seen for thirteen months. Southey was providing means for sending Hartley Coleridge to college, but could extract no reply to a letter addressed to Coleridge himself.
