Literary Landmarks: Coleridge Cottage

TColeridge Cottage This 17th-century cottage in Nether Stowey, Somerset was home to Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge during his most frutiful three years from 1797. It was during this time he wrote his finest works, including The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Kubla Khan, Frost at Midnight, The Nightingale, Cristabel and This Lime Tree Bower my Prison. Here also is where he collaborated with William Wordsworth to produce Lyrical Ballads, with a Few Other Poems a collection of poems published in 1798 & considered the beginning of the English Romantic movement in literature
