English - 1811 - 1815

1811 - 1815

From 1811 to 1815 Coleridge conducted a highly successful series of
lectures on William Shakespeare and John Milton

From 1811 to 1815, he gave a highly successful series of lectures on
Shakespeare and Milton, produced a successful play, made great progress on
his_ Biographia Literaria_ and made great efforts to reduce his
drug-taking.

From 1816 till his death in 1834, he lived under the friendly care of Dr
Gillman in Highgate. From Highgate, he published a number of his works,
continued political journalism and delivered further lecture series. It was
in this period from 1811 till his death that he published many of the prose
essays and philosophical tracts that established his reputation alongside
his poetry, as well as completing _Biographia Literaria_, though he never
finished the work embodying his entire philosophical system, the_ Opus
Maximum._
