Finds similarities in both authors’ love of philology, ability to tell a spell-binding story, and the long torment of the Mariner and Frodo, as well as an essentially Catholic orientation and a regard for the numinous nature of life. (The author does not posit any influence on Tolkien by Coleridge but simply notes similarities.)
