This second volume covers the last 30 years of Coleridge’s career (1804—1834) during which he travelled restlessly through the Mediterranean, returned to his old haunts in the Lake District and the West Country, and finally settled in Highgate, in London.
It was a period of domestic and professional turmoil. His marriage broke up, his opium addiction increased, he quarrelled with Wordsworth, his son Hartley Coleridge (a gifted poet himself) became an alcoholic and after a desperate time of transition, Coleridge re-emerged on the literary scene as a new kind of philosophical and meditative author.
