In 1797 and 1798 Coleridge wrote two poems with rather similar topics, “To the Rev. George Coleridge” and “Frost at Midnight.” The first is largely unread while the second is frequently and repeatedly anthologized, and is generally considered a significant part of the canon of English poetry. As a “Conversation Poem” the second seems to invite the participation of the reader; in the first, in contrast, the reader remains an observer. An analysis of the sound patterns and structure of the poems is undertaken, which shows how the poems differ at the formal level in a number of ways. Unlike the first poem, the feelings evoked in the reader by “Frost” invite self-referential exploration. It is argued that this process typifies literary works that become canonical.
