The Other Coleridge

The daughter of one famous writer, Anne Fadiman, writes about the son of another, Hartley Coleridge, in “The Oakling and the Oak.” Read his “To a Cat,” which concludes:

“The world would just the same go round
If I were hang'd and thou wert drown'd;
There is one difference, 'tis true, --
Thou dost not know it, and I do.”
