This volume demonstrates the extent and diversity of Coleridge's writings on the sublime. It highlights the development of his aesthetic of transcendence from an initial emphasis on the infinite progressiveness of humanity, through a fascination with landscape as half-revealing the infinite forces underlying it, and with literature as producing a similar feeling of the inexpressible, to an increasing emphasis on contemplating the ineffable nature of God, as well as the transcendent power of Reason or spiritual insight. It explores not only Coleridge's pre-eminence among British Romantic writers on the sublime, but also the extent to which an emphasis on humanity's ascent to higher forms of consciousness and being informs both his earlier and later writings on science, psychology, metaphysics, religion, politics, as well as on landscape, literature, and the visual arts. This volume helps to fill a major gap in earlier editions of and critical writings in Coleridge.
