The Self Conscious Imagination by Kathleen Coburn

£14.99

Product description

In the Introduction to the first volume of her edition of the Notebooks (1957), Kathleen Coburn wrote: 'Critical commentary... will come with better grace and more assured insight at the end of the work'. Now that three of the projected five volumes are published, and work on the other two is far advanced, she has written a section of such a commentary on the theme of Coleridge's awareness of himself, other persons, the natural and spiritual worlds, through his sensibilities and imagination. In his notebooks Coleridge revealed himself in writings initially not intended for publication. As the Riddell Lectures of 1972 celebrated the bi-centenary of his birth, the selection of so personal a subject was particularly appropriate. But the resulting critical introduction to the Notebooks extends beyond the occasion, and deals in fact with central aspects of Coleridge's work as a whole. Scholarly, and also human, it should answer any doubters about Coleridge's essential integrity (Inner blurb, 1974).

About: This volume contains the speeches given by Kathleen Coburn at Newcastle University (February 1973) as part of the Riddell Memorial Lectures.

Condition: Very Good. The book has been read and is in a very good condition. The pages are intact and are free of notes, annotations and highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Dust-jacket accompanies book. There is a slight crease to the left and right flaps. Price-tag remains unclipped.
