Samuel Taylor Coleridge has a special place in literature. Intrigued by metaphysics and science, he also produced some of the most beautiful lyrics of the Romantic period. So sweeping was his need to know - everything - he is often accused by his critics of losing sight of the particular, of failing his incredible poetic and critical gifts. Even so, Coleridge produced the Biographia Literaria - a key text in understanding Romanticism. His criticism of Shakespeare's work has founded modern Shakespearean studies.

A sympathetic account of Coleridge's troubled life - his difficult marriage, his addiction to opium and his famed 'inefficiency' - this Student Guide draws attention to the vast endeavor of his intellectual and artistic work, enabling the reader to get to grips with this most beguiling and paradoxical figure.
