  2. 2. Devon Devon (historically also known as Devonshire) is a country of England, reaching from the Bristol Channel in the north to the English Channel in the south.
  3. 3. Nam e Devon derives its name from Dumnonia, which, during the British Iron Age and Roman Britain, was the homeland of the Dumnonii Celts.
  4. 4. Geogr aphy Geographically, Devon is the only country of England to have non-continuous stretches of coastline to both the north and south. Both coastlines include both cliffs and sandy shores
  5. 5. Samuel Taylor Coleridge Samuel Taylor Coleridge (21 October 1772 – 25 July 1834) was an English poet, literary critic and philosopher who, with his friend William Wordsworth, was a founder of the Romantic Movement in England and a member of the Lake Poets.
  6. 6. Education He attended Dame Key’s Reading School from 1775 , and the Henry VIII Free Grammar School from 1778. After his father died in 1781, Coleridge attended Christ's Hospital School in London, where he met lifelong friend Charles Lamb.
  7. 7. M ar r iage While in London, he also befriended a classmate named Tom Evans, who introduced Coleridge to his family. Coleridge fell in love with Tom's older sister Mary.
  8. 8. Poetr y In 1795 Coleridge befriended William Wordsworth, who greatly influenced Coleridge's verse. Coleridge, whose early work was celebratory and conventional, began writing in a more natural style. In 1796 Coleridge published his first volume of poetry, Poems on Various Subjects, and began the first of ten issues of a liberal political publication entitled The Watchman.
  9. 9. Death He died in Highgate, London on July 25, 1834, providing his own epitaph: Beneath this sod A Poet lies; or that which once was he. O lift one thought in prayer for S.T.C. That he, who many a year with toil of breath, Found Death in Life, may here find Life in Death.
  10. 10. Answer To A Child's Question Do you ask what the birds say? The sparrow, the dove, The linnet, and thrush say, 'I love and I love!' In the winter they're silent, the wind is so strong; What it says I don't know, but it sings a loud song. But green leaves and blossoms, and sunny warm weather, And singing, and loving, all come back together. Then the lark is so brimful of gladness and love, The green fields below him, the blue sky above, That he sings, and he sings, and forever sings he-'I love my Love, and my Love loves me!'
