For Wordsworth, the artist’s heightened sensibility sets him apart from the rest of humanity; Coleridge takes that separateness and elevates the artist to the status of a god, who can create worlds that have never before existed. Coleridge’s critical writings, including On the Principles of Genial Criticism (1814) and his Biographia Literaria (1817), emphasize the idea of organicism as central to the Romantic world-view. The language and form of poetry – its language and meter – have to arise organically, naturally, spontaneously, from the interaction of the poet and the natural world, rather than being the process of intellectual deliberation or imitation of classical authors.
6 Wordsworth is more concerned with the relation between the poet and the poem than with the poem and its reader; he is not particularly interested in the moral eﬀect of poetry. He focuses on examining what a poem is, how it’s made, and who makes it, rather than on what it does. ’7 Feeling is thus established as the central element in a poem, more important than action, situation, character, or mimetic accuracy. The purpose of a poem is not to teach overtly, not to shape thought, character, or action, but to express and produce powerful emotion.
