About the Author

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) was an English poet, Romantic, literary critic, and philosopher, who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets. He is probably best known for his poems The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan, as well as for his major prose work Biographia Literaria. His critical work, especially on Shakespeare, was highly influential, and he helped introduce German idealist philosophy to English-speaking culture. He coined many familiar words and phrases, including the celebrated "suspension of disbelief." He was a major influence, via Emerson, on American transcendentalism.
William Wordsworth (1770 -1850) was born in Cockermouth, England, and was part of the famous Lake Poets group. Wordsworth was the United Kingdom's Poet Laureate from 1843 until his death. He is best-known for his collection of poems, Lyrical Ballads, that he wrote and published with his friend and fellow Lake Poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The seminal collection helped to set England's Romantic Era in motion.
