  • Coleridge and the Armoury of the Human Mindby Peter J. Kitson; Thomas N. Corns

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1991, this book collects a broad array of path-finding scholarship by specialists in Coleridge and Romantic literature on the subject of his prose. They range from broad appraisals of Coleridge’s own critical practises; demonstrations of the fecundity of his autobiography, the Biographia Literaria, for contemporaries; the effect... more...

  • Coleridge and the Abyssinian Maidby Geoffrey Yarlott

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1967, this book seeks to show the causes which led to Coleridge’s breakdown in 1802 and to indicate how his views on poetry changed as a result of it. The approach is selective in that it only focuses on one part of Coleridge’s life (roughly 1793-1810); however the author attempts to relate a number of different areas of his activity... more...

  • The Design of Biographia Literariaby Catherine M. Wallace

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1983, this book examines a work whose intricacies have baffled and infuriated generations of readers and proposes a theory of Coleridge’s writing habits that "explain(s) his explanation". The author painstakingly analyses the Biographia’s organising structure distinguishing between the daring conception and often inept execution... more...

  • A Commentary on Wordsworth's Preludeby Ted Holt; John Gilroy

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1983, this books aims to guide Wordsworth students through his difficult masterpiece by reading it in continuous sequence and making its sense emerge. The special value of this commentary is that it explains the structure of The Prelude by encouraging study of the poem as a continuous whole rather than selectively looking at individual... more...

  • Method and Imagination in Coleridge's Criticismby J.R. de J. Jackson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1969, this book places Coleridge’s literary criticism against the background of his philosophical thinking, examining his theories about criticism and the nature of poetry. Particular attention is paid to the structure of Biographia Literaria, Coleridge’s distinction between Imagination and Fancy, his definitions of the poetic... more...

  • The Simple Wordsworthby John F. Danby

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1960, this book studies Wordsworth’s ‘simple’ poems, such as the Lyrical Ballads , as products of a sophisticated and powerfully successful literary genius. The author aims to approach the poems as perhaps Wordsworth expected his first readers to; but as they have never been in fact. The result of this approach is to discover a... more...

  • Wordsworth and the Adequacy of Landscapeby Donald Wesling

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1970, this stylistic and interpretative account of some of Wordsworth’s major poetry examines description and meditation in his landscape writing. It describes the integration of two kinds of thinking, and a variety of beauties and lapses that come from their separation. Although Wordsworth’s deepest affinity was with nature,... more...

  • Coleridge the Poetby George Watson

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1966. Despite the intense interest in Coleridge in the twentieth century, this book represents the first study of Coleridge’s poetry to be published in Britain. It is also the first to be based upon the conclusion that Coleridge’s greatness as a poet is a matter of achievement rather than aspiration and to argue that his literary... more...

  • Coleridgeby Katharine Cooke

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1979, this book provides thorough a guide through Coleridge’s diverse body of work, looking not just his poetry but also his literary criticism and theories, plays, political journalism and theory, and writings on religion and philosophy. The author is careful to avoid emphasising one aspect of his work over another and consequently... more...

  • Romantic Paradoxby C.C. Clarke

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    First published in 1962, this book reveals unexpected complexity or equivocation in Wordsworth’s use of certain key words, particularly ‘image’, ‘form’ and ‘shape’. The author endeavours to show that this complexity is related to the poet’s awareness of the ambiguity of the perceptual process. Numerous passages from The Prelude and other poems are... more...
