About this book


This exciting new study examines Coleridge's understanding of the Pantheism Controversy - the crisis of reason in German philosophy - revealing the context informing Coleridge's understanding of German thinkers. It establishes the central importance of the contested status of reason for Coleridge's poetry and later religious thought.
