He considered the wonderfully imaginative, psychological, metaphysical and pantheistic romantic poems with comparing other greatest poets by a recognized location. There are number of aspects in Coleridge’s personality and also in his writings consists of philosophy, religion, metaphysical aspects, irony, imagination, metaphor, and pantheism. In this research article, the discussion is taken from his most impressive poems “The Ancient Mariner”, “The Eolian Harp”, “Religious Musings” and “This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison”, which shows Coleridge’s representation of of terms Patheism and metaphysical spaculations. Coleridge gave two philosophical declarations. These two declarations are related to his concept of "one Life”. They are related to the different theories and symbolically different. The first declaration appears after Coleridge connotation with the breeze that has caressed the lute, the second declaration is about his previous experience where he had been little more than a passive lute being caresses by the breeze. Hence these two declarations come to know after a representation of imagination and after explaining of fancy in the period of Romantisicim.
