Excerpt from The American Monthly Magazine and Critical Review, 1817, Vol. 1

It was in vain that, after reading the poem of Christabel, we resorted to the preface to consult the poet himself about his meaning. He tells us only that which, however important, doubt less, in itself, throws very little light up on the mysteries of the poem, viz. That great part of the poem was written in the year 1797, at Stowey, in the county of Somerset: the second part, after his return from Germany, in the year 1800, at Keswich, in Cumberland. Since the latter date my poetic powers, says the author, have been till very lately in a state of suspended animation. Now we cannot but suspect that there is a little anachronism in this statement, and that in truth it was during this sus pense of the author's poetical powers, that this wild and singularly original and beautiful poem of Christabel was conceived and partly executed.
