This article examines the literary influence of Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Europe. It explains that Coleridge's reputation outside England has been largely ignored for quite special reasons. The first reason is that Coleridge's oeuvre in English has only very recently been established through the long labours on the richly annotated Collected Coleridge, the Letters, and the Notebooks. Another reason is that Coleridge's relations with Europe have unusually been viewed through the other end of the lens: his own borrowings from European thinkers.
