Poet, philosopher, and critic, Samuel Taylor Coleridge is now best
remembered for the extraordinary "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner"
and "Kubla Khan." With his friend William Wordsworth he founded the
Romantic movement--theirs was one of the most productive and
creative partnerships in the history of English literature;
together with Robert Southey, they became known as the Lake Poets.
Daniel Hahn traces the history of Coleridge's life, his intense
friendship with William and Mary Wordsworth, his travels through
Europe, failed marriage, and crippling addiction to opium. He
reveals the inspiration for Coleridge's greatest works, and
proffers insightful extracts from the poet's compositions. The
result is a succinct and rounded portrayal of this great writer.
