Book summary

Subtitled A Mystery, this is a poem about the utopian "Pantisocratic" plan, a scheme once devised and abandoned by eighteenth-century poet-philosophers Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey. What if they had indeed set up this ideal community on the banks of the Susquehanna? This is the crux of the poem's theme offering a version of events drawn from the mind's eye of one of Southey's reputed descendants. [via]
