What is included with this book?


Coleridge's Visionary Languagesis a collection of essays by some of the leading scholars of Romanticism. They take as their theme Coleridge's ability to transform discourses from within and to envisage new relations between them. Working with insights provided by recent developments in literary theory, in feminism, and in historical analysis, these essays present Coleridge as a poet and thinker deeply concerned to transform the establishedlanguages of power to make possible a more deeply and justly based understanding of men, women, and society. The book ranges across the full length and breadth of Coleridge's intellectual life and will be of interest to all those wishing to question Romanticism's engagement with its own andour times.Contributors: PETER J.
