During his lifetime, English poet Samuel Rogers was one of the most celebrated poets in England, although his fame has now been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues Lord Byron, William Wordsworth, and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. A banker by trade, Rogers gained a reputation for his painstakingly polished verses which he took great time to produce.
