Coleridge and the Doctors


Neil Vickers

Oxford English Monographs

  • The first ever book-length study of Coleridge's medical pursuits, including his dealings with opiates.
  • The first work to attempt to reconstruct Coleridge's application of contemporary medical theory to his own case.
  • It puts forward novel readings of major works and major critical excursions in Coleridge's life, arguing that his work was heavily influenced by his knowledge of medicine.
