Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in collaboration with his friend, William Wordsworth, revolutionized English poetry. In 1798 they produced their Lyrical Ballads, poems of imagination and reflection using the language of men - pointing the way forward for a generation of Romantic poets.

Coleridge's addiction to opium affected his poetic output, and yet the handful of poems he did produce were innovative. These ranged from the quietly conversational to the wildly imagined, and include two of the greatest in English literature: Kubla Khan and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Hollywood actor Michael Sheen reads The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, in this collection, which is part of the Naxos AudioBooks The Great Poets series. This popular anthology also contains Coleridge's other major narrative poem Christabel, as well as Kubla Khan, Love, Frost at Midnight, and The Lime-Tree Bower My Prison.
