The story of one of the important Romantic poets, Samuel Taylor Coleridge follows the life of Samuel Coleridge from his days as a poverty-stricken scholarship student to the publication of the opus Biographia Literaria. Seamus Perry looks at Coleridges friendship with Robert Southey; his fortuitous meeting with William Wordsworth and their work on Lyrical Ballads, which sparked the Romantic movement; and his numerous careers, which included governmental secretary and sometimes spy (in Malta), journalist in London, and writer of plays, poetry, philosophy, literary criticism, political analysis, theology, and translations. Samuel Taylor Coleridge includes drawings, paintings, and original manuscripts that illustrate this brilliant writers prolific and troubled life.
