Christabel is a lengthy poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in two parts. The first part was written in 1797, and the second in 1800. Coleridge planned three additional parts, but these were never completed. The verse of Christabel features a novel metrical system, based on the count of only accents - even though the amount of syllables in each verse can vary from four to twelve, the amount of accents per line never deviates from four. The poem is notable for its influence on later vampire fiction.
