Product description

Review

Malcolm Guite has established himself as one of the leading Christian poets of our time. This positions him to offer a distinctive reading of a poetic giant of the past, S. T. Coleridge. As expected, Mariner is exceptionally rich, penetrating and absorbing.

Jeremy Begbie, Duke University

Guite is a serious and substantive critic, and there is more about Coleridge's greatest poem here than in any work published in the last quarter-century. I imagine that this book may become a classic of Christian spirituality, a text for retreats, and, if it does, it will help resurrect Coleridge's own reputation in that regard.―The Tablet

Forcefully and convincingly argued.―The Telegraph

An illuminating close reading of the poem, relating it at every point to the subsequent course of Coleridge's life, he shows us why it remains so important for our culture.―The Church Times

Alongside impressive close readings of the text... a fully rounded Coleridge emerges from these pages.―The Catholic Herald

A profound exploration of the human condition...Guite also draws out the continuing relevance of Coleridge's life and writing to our own time.―Transpositions

This is a superior life of Coleridge ... Guite has complete mastery of the primary and secondary literature [and] masterfully interweaves sections from the Mariner with episodes from Coleridge's unfolding life to both enhance our appreciation of Coleridge's poetic powers and to bring us up to speed on all that is known of his later life.―The Heythrop Journal

an impressive piece of academic work: lengthy, scholarly, well-written and enjoyable―Progressive Voices

Guite takes me to a depth I have not been before; I thank him for it, and I am exhilarated... Guite's masterful textual analysis is fascinating... Guite's own engagement with Coleridge is not only sympathetic and incisive, it is infectious.―Temenos Academy Review

This book - which is full of judiciously chosen quotations from Coleridge's mesmerising letters and notebooks - is a splendid celebration of the grizzled figure who 'stoppeth one of three' and the tragic artist who created him.―The Times
