Discomposed at Cora Linn

My interest here is in “Composed at Cora Linn” and “The Brownie’sCell”: poems forming a tributary to The River Duddon that disclose some of the literary, historical, and personal preoccupations informing this important volume. Inspired by a visit to the Clyde Falls, and colored by the region’s association with the rebel leader William Wallace, “Composed at Cora Linn” looks back to an earlier stage in the poet’s life and to recollections of the friendship with Coleridge that, following the quarrel of 1812, appeared decisively to have fallen apart.
