Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834) was an English poet, literary critic, philosopher, and a founder of the Romantic Movement in England. He coined many familiar words and phrases, including “suspension of disbelief.” He was a major influence on transcendentalism.

Throughout his adult life Coleridge had crippling bouts of anxiety and depression. He was physically unhealthy. He was treated with laudanum (2 quarts/week), a lifelong opium addiction. He was highly disorganized and had no head for business. He traveled to Sicily and Malta, working as Acting Public Secretary of Malta.
