Volatilia

Coleridge is famous not just for his published writings, but also for his notebooks. He gave some of them highly ironic titles. Thus Notebook 56 was called: "Volatilia or Day-Book for bird-liming Small Thoughts, impounding Stray Thoughts, and holding for trial doubtful Thoughts."

Nice! He read a lot of Jean Paul.
