Resumo: Although Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772 1834), an English poet of the Romantic period, is now celebrated as one of the most important public figures of his time, his professional and private lives prove that this status he presently has was widely challenged during his lifetime. He was frequently criticised by his contemporaries, while his poems, Christabel (1816) in particular, were generally misunderstood and rejected as not worthy of his name. This poem, the one we focused on in this thesis, acted as a true nemesis, the key enemy, which happened to be one of the reasons why Coleridge's friendship with his best friend William Wordsworth (1770 1850) began to fade. The following two ideas guided us in writing this thesis. The first idea involves the nature of Coleridge and Wordsworth's friendship. These poets marked the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century. They became close friends in 1797. Their friendship resulted, among other things, in a joint collection of poems, Lyrical Ballads (1798), whose publication is generally taken as the beginning of Romanticism in England. This complex friendship, with its implications, motivated us to undertake this research. Our second guiding idea is Coleridge's unfinished poem Christabel. It was supposed to conclude the second edition of Lyrical Ballads (1800). Unfortunately, Wordsworth decided to exclude it which devastated Coleridge poetically and psychologically. Profoundly disturbed by Wordsworth's decision, among other reasons, Coleridge turned to opium, lamenting over lost poetic powers. Christabel consequently became a true nemesis for Coleridge, which as some sort of a spell, tormented Coleridge till his death. This dissertation is divided into two parts. The first will explore the nature of Coleridge and Wordsworth's friendship. The second will focus on the analysis of Christabel which initiated the disintegration of the poets'strong friendship and prolific collaboration.
