Thirty-seven chapters, bringing together the wisdome of experts from across the world, present an authoritative,in-depth, and up-to-date assessment of a major author of British Romanticism.

Editorial Reviews

"Review from previous edition A substantial portion of these essays are by leading scholars who bring to the project a wealth of knowledge, a keen sense of both the history of Coleridgean scholarship and its contemporary preoccupations, and the ability to convey this in succint and informativeways. As such, the Handbook should serve as an excellent companion not only for undergraduate students beginning their studies of Coleridge, but also for more advanced scholars" --Quentin Bailey, Notes and Queries
