Biography Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, one of the most famous of all poems, was first published in 1798. This was in fact in a joint book of poems with William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy, and their intention was to illustrate Wordsworths ideas of how poems should be written in the simple language of the people. The outcome was The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. This famous book Lyrical Ballads was published by Cottles a Bristol bookseller who patronised Coleridge and Southey  when noone else would pay them for their early work. Cottle sold all his copyrights to Longmans and the copyrights to Lyrical Ballads was given back to Wordsworth as valueless.
