In 1802, Coleridge's growing sense of distance from Wordsworth was not entirely emotional. It was accentuated, not caused, by his ‘own peculiar lot’; and did not always produce the envy and exclusion so clearly present in the Letter to Sara Hutchinson. They were both moving, intellectually and creatively, in opposite directions. Wordsworth at times seemed oblivious of change, and wrote as though the closeness of their earlier relationship still existed. But Coleridge became increasingly aware of ways in which they differed.
