This is the first volume of Richard Holmes’ two-volume biography of Coleridge, which won the 1989 Whitbread Prize for book of the year and transforms our view of this greatest of Romantic poets.
Coleridge: Early Visions is the first part of a major new biography of Samuel Taylor Coleridge which will transform our view of the poet of ‘Kubla Khan’ and his place in the Romantic Movement.
Dismissed by much recent scholarship as an opium addict, plagiarist, political apostate and mystic charlatan, Richard Holmes’ Coleridge leaps out of the page as a brilliant animated and endlessly provoking figure who invades the imagination.
