What do teachers say about this resource? (8216)
Overall I think this is a really valuable resource. It is clearly directed at the aims of the specification and the assessment objectives, which require an understanding of the aspects of narrative but it also offers relevant background contextual material, which serves to reinforce the importance of the aspects of narrative in terms of what Coleridge was trying to achieve.

Extremely detailed and it would be an excellent purchase for any teacher... I really liked the very detailed information on the gloss and the translation/analysis that is specifically linked to each section and line. VERY helpful and easy to follow for a teacher and a student. I really liked the metaphysical map for the poem [and] the detailed glossary information... Perhaps one of the most comprehensive study guides on this text that I have seen... A must for any new teacher to this text! It would save them hours of personal research.
