About this book


Of all the wide-ranging interests Coleridge showed in his career, religion was the deepest and most long lasting, and Beer demonstrates in this book how none of this work can be fully understood without taking this into account. Beer also reveals how Coleridge was preoccupied by the life of the mind and how closely this subject was intertwined with religion in his thinking.

'Beer's judicious use of the Letters and the Notebooks -the predominant sources for the selections-provides precisely the style and tone required for a fresh evaluation of Coleridge's religious thought.' - Jeffrey W. Barbeau
