Coleridge collaborated with his sometime neighbour William Wordsworth on the 'Lyrical Ballads', experimented with opium (famously resulting in 'Kubla Khan') and outlined his theory of criticism in the 'Biographia Literaria'. Lithograph from the portrait by Thomas Phillips (1819-21, private plate; copy at John Murray, London) which was commissioned by publisher William Miller, as part of a series of portraits of poets whose work he published. Others painted by Phillips included Byron and Walter Scott.
