Hartley Coleridge (1796–1849)

Coleridge, Hartley. An English poet and literary critic (1796–1849), son of Samuel Taylor; born at Clevedon. He inherited defects of character and will, and never realized the promise of his great talents. His writings in prose are ‘Biographia Borealis’ (1833); ‘The Worthies of Yorkshire and Lancashire’ (1836); and a volume of ‘Essays and Marginalia.’ His brother Derwent published a biography and his poems (2 vols., 1850).
