i've read so many times that Coleridge depicts solitariness in almost all of his poems but how and where?! Through guilt in Rime o.t. Ancient Mariner and surroundings in Frost@Midnight, am i missing something!?

"This lime tree bower my prison", "Fears in Solitude", "Frost at Midnight"- all have a protagonist isolated from his friends etc. In "Frost at Midnight" the narrator is the only person awake. The Ancient Mariner is the only living person when all his shipmates have died. In Kubla Khan he is isolated by his vision.

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The body,
Eternal Shadow of the finite Soul,
The Soul's self-symbol, its image of itself.
Its own yet not itself--
