This text combines a complete translation of Aristotle's "poetics" with a running commentary, printed on facing pages, to keep the reader in continuous contact with the linguistic and critical subtleties of the original while highlighting crucial issues for students of literature and literary theory. The volume includes two essays by George Whalley that outline his method and purpose. He identifies a deep congruence between Aristotle's understanding of mimesis and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's view of imagination.
