Excerpt from Selected Narrative Poems: Coleridge, Wordsworth, Byron, Tennyson, Browning

On the last day of 1796 the Coleridge family moved to Nether Stowey, in Somersetshire. Here, In Close neighborhood to the poet Wordsworth, they lived for nearly two years, and here the two poets formulated those poetic theories which were destined to exert so fruitful an influence on English Literature. Coleridge wrote his drama Osorz'o (later called Remorse) in 1797, and by March 1798, his Ancient Mariner was complet ed. TO this creative period we likewise owe the commencement of a remarkable poem, Christabel, which was added to at a later date, but was never completed. Coleridge also contributed a number of political articles to the Morning Post, and frequently preached in neighboring Unitarian pulpits His material hardships were lessened by the receipt of an annuity of £150 (subsequently reduced) from Thomas and Josiah Wedgewood.
