That Coleridge cast a careful eye on philological matters, that indeed he was especially engaged by the cryptography of words in poetic contexts, is clear from his comments on haemony in Milton's Comus--first in a letter to his friend Sotheby and then again in The Statesman's Manual--which resolve it back into the Greek words for "blood" and wine" (White 88; Griggs II 459-60).
