Samuel Taylor Coleridge and the Sciences of Life

Synopsis

'There are a number of excellent essays here. Nicholas Roe's introduction gives a vivid sense of the close connections between science and politics during the Revolutionary decade' -Gregory Dart, Times Literary SupplementBringing together an exciting variety of approaches, these fifteen chapters illuminate Coleridge's relation to the 'sciences of life' - a term much broader than modern 'science'. Along with optics, chemistry, geology, anatomy, and medicine the studies embrace politics, racial theories, literary relations, and much more. This is a vital and exciting development in Coleridge criticism.
