Leeds: F. E. Bingley
Hartley Coleridge (1796-1849) was Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s eldest son. As was common in the early nineteenth century, Hartley was sent away from home to attend public school. He excelled academically, but around age 20 he began to show symptoms of the depression and alcoholism that characterised much of his later life. After he was expelled from college on charges of ‘sottishness, a love of low company, and general inattention to college rules’, Hartley began work as a writer. His poems and essays appeared in periodicals, including London Magazine and Blackwood’s. His volume of Poems (1833) was well received by critics and readers alike.
