Samuel Taylor Coleridge was a major English lyrical poet critic and philosopher whose lyrical ballads written with William Wordsworth started and brought the movement of English Romanticsm to new heights Thus such a reputation brought upon an authentic visionary who soon achieved great works such as Christabel Kubla-Kahn The Rime of The Ancient Mariner as well as many other noted works Coleridge became a poet of broad imagination using nature as an important aspect in the nature of his poems He explored the relationships between nature and the mind thusly existing as separate entities The Rime of The Ancient Mariner and Kubla Khan demonstrate Coleridges talent for concocting bizarre unsettling stories full of fantastic imagery and magic In poems such as Frost at Midnight and Dejection An Ode he reflects explicitly on the nature of the mind as it interacts with the creative source of nature It is said to believe that Coleridge became an opium addict and is also though that Kubla Khan was a production which originated from an opium dream His portrayal of the mind as it moves whether in silence as Frost at Midnight or in frenzy Kubla Kahn also helped to redefine the personal emotionalism of Romanticism He took poetry to a different level as emotion being the not the essence of nature but the essence of itself Coleridges poetic ballads are full of life and bring imagination to those who read his work Coleridge was a deep thinker who felt as feelings should not come of the origins of nature but rather that the mind must be so immersed within its own joy that it opens up to the real independent immortal joy of nature
