Reviews

Review from previous edition A substantial portion of these essays are by leading scholars who bring to the project a wealth of knowledge, a keen sense of both the history of Coleridgean scholarship and its contemporary preoccupations, and the ability to convey this in succint and informative ways. As such, the Handbook should serve as an excellent companion not only for undergraduate students beginning their studies of Coleridge, but also for more advanced scholars - Quentin Bailey, Notes and Queries
