"A-Z - Wordsworth & Coleridge"
A book, candlelight,
lady-luck maligned -
(e)xhausted youthful zeal.

Wordsworth & Coleridge were two gifted young poets who lived during tumultuous times (French Revolution) and formed a youthful and exhilarating friendship, but differences doomed an otherwise brilliant partnership. Youthful zest can only fly so far, and they ended up parting ways. They did reconcile a bit later in life, but... I haven't read that far yet. The book is "The Friendship"
