DescriptionReviewsContentsAuthors

Meeting Coleridge was one of the Romantic age's most memorable experiences, and many of his contemporaries left vivid records - Wordsworth, Lamb, Hazlitt, Keats, Emerson and many others, often now forgotten. This book is a comprehensive, fully annotated collection of such reminiscences. Drawing on an eclectic range of materials (including private journals, letters, poems, and comic portraits), and printing many texts otherwise difficult to access, it will prove an invaluable resource for students of romanticism, as well as a treasure-trove for Coleridge's many admirers.

Reviews

Perry's collection gains much...[from] the uncovering of accounts by minor figures who made small but distinctive contributions. The Wordsworth Circle
