Overview

Poetry in its many guises is at the center of Coleridge's multifarious interests, and this long-awaited new edition of his complete poetical works marks the pinnacle of the Bollingen Collected Coleridge. The three parts of Volume 16 confirm and expand the sense of the Coleridge who has emerged over the past half-century, with implications for English Romantic writing as a whole. Setting new standards of comprehensiveness in the presentation of Romantic texts, they will interest historians and editorial theorists, as well as readers and students of poetry. They represent a work of truly monumental importance.

The first part presents the reading texts of 706 poems in chronological sequence. Its blend of newly discovered and newly collected poems, presented in light of all known evidence and where practicable in unrevised forms, offers a fresh and original Coleridge: less inhibited by Victorian ideas about what poetry should be, moving easily and productively between genres and levels of seriousness. In texts that remained fluid and exploratory to the end, Coleridge alternates between lyric and satire, prophecy and conversation, symbol and allegory.

Each poem is accompanied by a headnote and commentary that together provide its historical-biographical context and offer key textual variants. The book opens with an introduction and chronological tables. The three appendixes position individual poems in the contexts in which they appeared during Coleridge's lifetime. Illustrations such as contemporary scenes and portraits bring this rich collection, like the companion volumes, all the more to life.

London Review of Books
There is something to celebrate in the fact that J. C. C. Mays has added these final volumes . . . to the monumental Princeton University Press Coleridge.

In general, this Collected Poems serves its editor's wish: we see a fuller Coleridge . . . [with] his exceptional intelligence and sensibility and breadth of information, his exquisite eye and ear.

Publishers Weekly
After recent acclaim for its edition of Coleridge's Marginalia, Princeton returns with a monumental two "part" (i.e., two separate books with one ISBN) reading text of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poetry: Poetical Works I: Poems (Reading Text), volume 16 of the press's complete Coleridge edition. Edited by J.C.C. Mays, professor of modern English and American literature at Dublin's University College, the text will be definitive for the foreseeable future, and includes headnotes and footnotes contextualizing each poem as a whole, single lines, phrases and words. While a must for scholarly libraries, most poets and lay readers will have to save their pennies. (Nov. 4) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
