In 1791 he went to Jesus College, Cambridge, but did not complete a degree. He began to publish poems in 1793, and in 1795 he met Wordsworth, with whom he composed Lyrical Ballads. Coleridge's best known poems and poetic torsos include 'The Aeolian Harp' (1795), 'The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner' (1797) and his final masterpiece, 'Dejection: An Ode' (1802). He died in 1834.
