English poet William Wordsworth lived in the village of Grasmere from 1799 to 1813. Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), Robert Southey (1774-1843) and Thomas de Quincey (1785 - 1859) also made the Lake District their home at the beginning of the 19th century. The beauty of the natural world and the local landscape greatly influenced their work.
