Samuel T. Coleridge

1772 - 1834

poet and literary philosopher of the Romantic movement.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was a leader of the Romantic movement. Coleridge shaped ideas in the soul and heart, and penned them, creating some of the most moving verse in literary history.

Coleridge's first years were troubled: he abandoned his studies, fled from Cambridge and joined the army, and later fled back to Cambridge.

He met William Wordsworth, and the two published a joint volume of poetry. They would remain friends for life.

The subject matter of Coleridge's work is extensive, but mainly lyrical in nature.
