Hospitality and Treachery in Western Literature

James A. W. Heffernan

This chapter explores the theme of hospitality in the works of two English romantic poets, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. In The Prelude, his autobiographical epic, Wordsworth laments the violation of monastic hospitality by French soldiers in the Convent of the Chartreuse. The chapter also examines Wordsworth's fascination with the spirit of place as it holds the key to Coleridge's concept of hospitality in his poem, “Rime.”

Keywords:   hospitality, romantic poets, William Wordsworth, Prelude, Convent, Chartreuse, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Rime
