Sara Coleridge (1802-52) was one of the most brilliant and erudite critics of the early Victorian period. The Regions of Sara Coleridge's Thought reveals her critical intelligence and theoretical reach. This study shows her in various critical guises: editing works by her father Samuel Taylor Coleridge, commenting on her own poetry and prose, and writing diversely impressive and lively criticism of classical and English literature. As her biographer E.L. Griggs said, her literary criticism forms 'a remarkable commentary on her generation.' This book makes her commentary on books and writers available for the first time, substantially representing her literary discussions from various unpublished and newly edited manuscript sources. Peter Swaab's scholarly introduction places Sara Coleridge in her literary, intellectual, and historical context, and evokes her exceptional qualities as a writer and critic.

Editorial Reviews

"The Regions of Sara Coleridge's Thought, which begins with Swaab's tidy introduction, and which has been put together mostly using Sara's private correspondence, is a treat. Swaab shows the life of one of the richest literary minds of the nineteenth century from the inside out, as it were." - European Romantic Review "In his judicious selection, astute introduction and supporting materials, Peter Swaab is Sara Coleridge's exemplary editor. The Regions of Sara Coleridge's Thought shows us a woman of genius commanding an extraordinary age and making it her own. Now all readers can discover in this enthralling selection of her writings exactly how she did so." - Nicholas Roe, Professor of English Literature, University of St. Andrews "Swaab's selection is carefully chosen and excellently arranged, and his introduction and notes provide expert guidance and further suggestions. Sara Coleridge—who stands at a crossroads where so many Victorian interests intersect and who evokes particular interest at the present time—has found the editor she richly deserves." - J. C. C. Mays, Professor Emeritus, University College Dublin
