 The Literary Gothic | Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Poet, critic, lecturer, Unitarian minister, moralizer, world-class talker, friend of William Wordsworth, and one of the most canonical (for what that's worth) figures of the British Romantic period, Coleridge (or STC, as he often referred to himself) is the "major" Romantic figure most associated with the Gothic, both now and in his lifetime.
STC's most well-known poem, this major contribution to the Romantic and Gothic traditions is a powerful rendition of the Romantic quest, a journey of suffering, expiation, guilt and the assertion of Self.
STC could struggle with despair and a sort of proto-existentialist gloom like no other Romantic poet (though John Clare comes close), and in these works Coleridge gives us dark glimpses into Romantic understandings of the mind and the emotions, a process begun by the Gothic.
