This article discusses issues relevant to critical writing about the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It suggests that critical analysis of Coleridge's works is problematic because his poems bristle with interpretive puzzles and his prose has provided a problematic base for modern interpretation itself. The article argues that Coleridge wrote the most obscure yet the most influential critical paragraph in English literature.
