Originally published in 1920, this book presents chapters 1-4 and 14-22 from Coleridge's Biographia Literaria. Edited by George Sampson, and containing an introduction by the renowned critic and novelist Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, the text was intended to provide both students of literature and more advanced readers with a selection of accessible passages from Coleridge's prose. Context is given by the inclusion of essays and prefaces from 1800-15 by Wordsworth relating to poetic theory, writings which are the subject of an extensive critical analysis in the Biographia. A list of works by Coleridge and Wordsworth is also incorporated, together with a summary of the chapters omitted by the editor. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Romantic literature, English poetry and literary criticism.
