Sara Coleridge: Her Life and Thought explores the biographical and intellectual history of Sara Coleridge (1802–52), a writer whose greatest works never appeared in print. Known to the public as the daughter of S. T. Coleridge and author of a few modest publications - a small collection of children's poems, translations of popular travel literature, and an innovative fairy tale - Sara's many unpublished manuscripts, letters, and other writings reveal an original thinker in dialogue with leaders of the Oxford Movement as well as other major literary and cultural figures in nineteenth-century England. Sara's writings on beauty, education, imagination, faith, the Bible, and suffering in life and death uncover new aspects of Romantic and Victorian literature, history, philosophy, and theology.
