About the Author

Samuel Taylor Coleridge was born in the English town of Ottery St Mary, where his father was a vicar, in 1772. The youngest of ten children, he attended school with Charles Lamb and spent two years at Jesus College, Cambridge where he was introduced to radical politics and theology by the poet Robert Southey. He first met William Wordsworth in 1795 and they published a joint poetry collection, Lyrical Ballads, in 1798; this highly praised volume, which started the English Romantic Movement, contained the first version of The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Alongside finding success with his poetry, Coleridge’s critical work, especially on Shakespeare, was highly influential. However much of his life was blighted by illness, opium addiction, financial problems and depression. He died of heart failure in London in 1834.

This digitized copy is a real let-down. Why even waste time creating this. The geniuses at google took something that reflected what some would call an elequent use of the english language and made pure rubbish from it. Great job.

It's magnificent--a true English epic. I 'cannot choose but hear'. (10/10)

This is my all time favorite epic poem for many reasons, among them being the beauty of the words. Coleridge eloquently tells the rough and tough story of the sea with deaths and shootings in a refined manner. Not only is his choice of words well above the average cut, but the order in which he places the words delights the reader. This is a yearly read for me.

If not for this poem iron maiden never would have made it into an amazing song 10/10

This is my favourite poem ever. Ill try not to sound too English majory, but i really koved Coleridge's vivid usage of imagery. I also loved the divinity of nature intertwining with the divinity of Christ through the metaphor of the Albatross. Grest poem. It will always be my favourite
