Question
Of the two W.Wordsworth and S.T.Coledrige who had more influence on modern criticism and in what respects?

Answer
I would say that Coleridge has had more influence, because he has written much more extensively in the actual field of criticism than Wordsworth has. While both these men are poets, Coleridge is more famous for his criticism than for his poetic writing, whereas the reverse is true for Wordsworth.
