This is the second poem in a series I’m working on. You can read the first one here. This one is about the relationship of Humphry Davy and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The title is taken from one of Davy’s Bakerian Lectures. Thanks for reading, and feel free to comment.

The poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge is come to London
to give some lectures on Shakespeare, of which one
concerning Hamlet, in two years’ time, will save the play
from the likes of Dr. Johnson and August Schlegel.
