    William Blake is now considered one of the giants of poetry. During his life, and for many years after, he was thought of as mad. His wide ranging skills not only encompassed poetry but bestrode the visual arts too, with paintings and printmaking. Unfortunately, he could never fit in to what society expected of him, and his attacks on religion did not help. But his work was the true measure of his worth and remains with us today.

    England has produced many wonderful poets. Samuel Taylor Coleridge is safe amongst their number. As well as a poet he was also known for his skills as a critic and philosopher. With his great friend William Wordsworth they began what is now seen as the Romantic Movement. Contributing such great works as 'Rime Of The Ancient Mariner', 'Kubla Kahn' and his opus Biographia Literatia to the English language ensures his place in our history.

Here a selection of his finest work, starting with "And did those feet in ancient time", is read by Sir Ralph Richardson.
