'''Samuel Taylor Coleridge ''' ([[Ottery St Mary]], [[Devon]]shire, [[21 oktober]] [[1772]] – [[Highgate (wyk)|Highgate]], [[Londen]], [[25 july]] [[1834]]) was an English poet, [[Romantyk|Romantic]], literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend [[William Wordsworth]], was a founder of the [[Romantyk|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 [[William Shakespeare]], was highly influential, and he helped introduce [[Dútsk idealisme|Dútske idealistyske]] filosofy to English-speaking culture. He was a major influence, via [[Ralph Waldo Emerson|Emerson]], on American [[transcendentalism]].
Throughout his adult life, Coleridge suffered from crippling bouts of anxiety and depression; it has been speculated by some that he suffered from [[bipolar disorder]], a condition as yet unidentified during his lifetime.<ref>Jamison, Kay Redfield. ''Touched with Fire: Manic-Depressive Illness and the Artistic Temperament.'' Free Press (1994.), 219–224.</ref> Coleridge suffered from poor health that may have stemmed from a bout of rheumatic fever and other childhood illnesses. He was treated for these concerns with [[laudanum]], which fostered a lifelong [[opium]] addiction.
