Coleridge was born in 1772, the youngest of ten children. When his father died he was sent to a London charity school. In 1791 he moved to Cambridge, where he met the radical poet Southey, who collaborated with him on a verse drama, the fall of Robespierre. He left Cambridge without a degree and married Southey’s fiancée’s sister. They had 4 children but the marriage was a failure. In 1795 Coleridge met Wordsworth and they wrote lyrical ballads. In 1798 he travelled to Germany with Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy. In1800 they returned to England and Coleridge went to live with the Wordsworths and Southey forming the “lake Poets”.

He also worked as a journalist and his fame improved with the publication of the poem Christabel and Kubla Khan. Continua »
