Editorial Reviews

'Sublime Coleridge is the first comprehensive study of the Opus Maximum, those surviving fragments of what Coleridge considered to be 'the principal Labour' and 'great Object' of his intellectual life. Focusing on key concepts in the Opus Maximum the will, divine ideas, the Trinity, the self, the sublime Evans carefully explicates the internal development of Coleridge's argument and knowledgeably relates that argument to the larger body of Coleridge's writings, both in prose and in verse. Sublime Coleridge will be welcomed not only by Coleridgeans but by all those interested in nineteenth-century British religious thought.' - Nicholas Halmi, University of Oxford'The unfinished and only recently published Opus Maximum is the most difficult of Coleridge's works but it was in his view the most important. The first sustained analysis, Sublime Coleridge provides a welcome guide to its key concepts and rhetorical strategies, together with a thoughtful account of its relationship to other Coleridgean texts.' - H. J. Jackson, University of Toronto
