Summary
"The theory of language in its many aspects preoccupied Coleridge throughout his career as the premier poet-critic of England's Romantic company. This collation of passages from his scattered contributions on the subject presents an imposing revision of the Enlightenment approach to language. Coleridge's reflections are traced to his engagement with the work of Edmund Burke, and of David Hartley, Horne Tooke, John Locke and others. The editor's introduction situates Coleridge's achievement as a theorist of language in this momentous transitional era, and with modern theory in mind. Editorial interventions in each chapter link Coleridge's concerns across time and topic."--BOOK JACKET
