He heroically died in battle at the young age of 21. His literary remains, mostly plays and poetry, were compiled and edited by his father and sister. The English translator was William Brownsword Chorley (1804-1879), a scholar and book collector, who inscribed this copy "To Hartley Coleridge with the Translator's respects and regards." Hartley Coleridge (1796-1849), the eldest son of Samuel Taylor and Sara Coleridge, and was an interesting and brilliant but tormented poet.
