A Visionary Landscape: Coleridge in the West Country 

The Ancient Mariner is deeply rooted in Somerset; Coleridge lived in Nether Stowey, and Watchet is the probable setting of his most famous work.  

The poem, presented in its final form in 1817, is as relevant today as it was 200 years ago.  The story grips us and can change the way we view the world, just as it did for 'the wedding guest'. 

Malcolm Guite, scholar, priest and poet, guides us through this story of the mystery of our fallen-ness (?) and brokenness, of evil in the world and the problem of redemption. What, he asks, might we learn from Coleridge in these extraordinary times in which we live?
