Traversing the themes of language, terror and representation, this is the first study to engage Coleridge through the sublime, showing him to have a compelling position in an ongoing conversation about finitude. Drawing on close readings of both his poetry and prose, it depicts Coleridge as a thinker of 'the limit' with contemporary force.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Christopher Stokes finds in Coleridge's dealings with the sublime a way into the patterns of his thinking, as they are articulated both in his poetry and in his philosophy. It is an impressive, ranging, perceptive account: the book takes on a subject that we thought we knew all about and discovers something new to say about it.'

- Seamus Perry, Balliol College, Oxford University, UK
