Pandaemonium (film)

Pandaemonium is a 2000 film. It is based on the early lives of English poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth, in particular their collaboration on the "Lyrical Ballads", and Coleridge's writing of Kubla Khan.

Directed by Julien Temple. Screenplay by Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Samuel Taylor ColeridgeEdit

  • It's only a mite. It's not as though he created a fully grown Doctor of Philosophy or a strapping great plough boy.
  • It's not the opium - it's my mind. I spend every day trying not to think.

William WordsworthEdit

  • We came to create a revolution of the mind, not to canoodle on a hillock.
  • Albatrosses have nothing to do with eel fishing! This is another distraction.
  • You can feed him with ideas and images but I go hungry.

Robert SoutheyEdit

  • Sam, opium is not your worst addiction. Your worst addiction is to Wordsworth.

John ThelwallEdit

  • You have grown such pleasing huge breasts, Sara.

DialogueEdit

Samuel Taylor Coleridge: Anonymous - like Homer, like the hills and clouds themselves!
Sara Coleridge: So long as Anonymous doesn't collect the fee.
