Poetry which should be hailing the triumph of his fellow labourer has turned to elegy — and elegy which, despite the echoes of Lycidas, is not for another poet, but for himself. In the poignant regret for his own past youth, and manhood come in vain, Coleridge is evidently weighing himself against the achievements of Wordsworth. It was to be his most bitter complaint, during the quarrel of 1810, that he had given his genius to and for his friend, subordinating his own creative powers and receiving nothing in return.
