Overview

Coleridge's Visionary Languages is 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.

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 and our times.
