Summary and Info
This chronological account of the life of Samuel Taylor Coleridge is built up from contemporary documents, including the letters and journals of the writer and of his family and friends. Maps, a family tree and an index are included along with over 50 biographical sketches of the Coleridge circle. The progress of the writer's education, reading, friendships and intellectual interests is carefully adumbrated and the book provides a full background to the genesis of the literary work. Along with descriptions of the genesis of Coleridge's major works, a juxtaposition is made of the writer's views with those of Wordsworth. Valerie Purton has co-written "Poems by Two Brothers: A Study of George Clayton Tennyson and Charles Tennyson D'Eyncout", and published articles in "A.R.I.E.L. and Prose Studies" and "The Dictionary of British Women Writers".
