The Ancient Mariner - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Join Colin Pinney for an illustrated reading from these great works, in the withdrawing room of Dr Johnson’s House.


Dr Johnson famously declared that London was the key to life, but for all that, London was also a place of considerable despair and poverty, as illustrated by William Hogarth, Johnson’s contemporary. 100 years later the poverty was still very much present and was illustrated by the Frenchman Gustav Doré in his London Pilgrimage.

Before this, Dore had also illustrated Poe’s The Raven and Coleridge’s Ancient Mariner and Doré almost certainly made both Poe and Coleridge more famous. We shall begin with an introduction to Doré’s work with extracts from his London Pilgrimage. Join Colin Pinney for an illustrated reading from these great works, in the withdrawing room of Dr Johnson’s House.
