|Plot Summary of Coleridge: Early Visions|
|"Samuel Taylor Coleridge was an English poet, journalist, philosopher, plagiarist and opium addict. He is probably most famous as the author of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
He was born into a middle class family in southern England. His exceptional intelligence and poetic sensibility came to the fore in his teens, but he did not achieve real fame until the publication of some of his work jointly with William Wordsworth.
Coleridge, Wordsworth and the circle of friends who became known as the Lake Poets, were notable for their love of nature and their desire to express themselves in a modern straightforward way.
As Coleridge became depressed by his difficult marriage and increasingly dependent on opium, hir relationship with the Wordworths fell apart."
