This article examines the notebook writings of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It explains that writings which could be classed as notebook material appear under other headings because Coleridge wrote them in the margins of books (marginalia) or on unbound sheets of paper. The article describes the contents, development, and structure of Coleridge's notebook writings. It suggests that the first user of the notebook was Coleridge himself because he considered them as his sole confidant, where he could write down the feelings he felt unable to share with others.

Keywords: notebook writings; Samuel Taylor Coleridge; marginalia; notebooks; confidant
