Example text

Baruch Spinoza (1632–77), one of the most influential philosophers of immanence in Coleridge’s youth, posits in his posthumous Ethics a determinism by which the only freedom is that which recognizes one’s lack of choice. Ultimately Spinoza preaches a passive intellect: ‘no single volition can exist or be determined to act unless it is determined by another cause. , p. 154. CN, I, § 1194. TT, I, pp. 94–5. CL, I, p. 364. Ethics, trans. by Samuel Shirley, in Spinoza: Complete Works, ed. by Michael L.

Coleridge’s conception of Robespierre retains the mixture of respect, abhorrence and pity that is associated with Oedipus. A poem ‘to a Young Lady’ of autumn 1794 articulates Coleridge’s ambivalence: ‘Fall’n is th’ oppressor, friendless, ghastly, low, | And my heart akes, tho’ MERCY struck the blow’ (27–8).

The bird has lost its young and its nest so that a ship might be constructed, and is joyful as it witnesses the destruction of the vessel and the death of her crew in a tempest. 28 In the destructive power of the tempest, daemonic energy is a manifestation of nature itself – rather than a chance, wandering spirit – which conspires to sink the ship. I find that the tempestuous and diversely inhabited universe of the ‘Ancient Mariner’ is akin to that of ‘The Raven’. The daemonic agent which directs the Mariner’s shooting of the albatross is a manifestation of the poem’s elemental forces; its energy is that of the ‘tyrannous and strong’ storm that precedes the bird’s arrival and pursues the ship with destructive intent (42, 45–50).
