Marginalia: Camden to Hutton

Front Cover
Princeton University Press, 1985 - 1248 pages

In his introduction to this edition of Coleridge's Marginalia, the late George Whalley wrote, There is no body of marginalia--in English, or perhaps in any other language--comparable with Coleridge's in range and variety and in the sensitiveness, scope, and depth of his reaction to what he was reading.'' The Princeton edition of the Marginalia, of which this is the third volume, will bring together over 8,000 notes, many never before printed, varying from a single word to substantial essays. In alphabetical order of authors, the notes are presented literatim from the original manuscripts whenever the annotated volumes can be found. Each note is preceded by the passage of the original text that appears to have provoked Coleridge's comment. Texts in foreign languages are followed by translations.

The present volume comprises annotations on 123 books (from authors C to H), including Donne's Poems and Sermons, seven copies of Eichhorn's biblical commentaries, eight volumes of Fichte's works, three Fielding novels and Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, Hegel's Logik, three works of Herder, and eight of Thomas Fuller. Besides English and American works, Coleridge annotated works in German, Latin, Greek, and Italian, the subjects of the volumes encompassing politics, religion, philosophy, poetry, aesthetics, medicine, law, and fiction. Part II also describes seventeen known but lost Coleridge-annotated volumes
