Coleridge : Lectures on Shakespeare (1811-1819)
Milton, John, Shakespeare, William,
This volume comprises a freshly composed edition of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 1811-12 Lectures on Shakespeare and Milton and 1818-19 Lectures on Shakespeare. Coleridge is a foundational figure in Shakespeare criticism, and remains to this day one of the most incisive and best. Nobody interested in Coleridge, Shakespeare or Literary Criticism more broadly can afford to be ignorant of Coleridge's famous lectures.Key Features
