Coleridge on Shakespeare: The Text of the Lectures 1811-12

First published in 1971.
The only substantial text of a series of lectures on Shakespeare by S T Coleridge is that provided by J P Collier’s Seven Lectures on Shakespeare and Milton
(1856). His text of these important lectures given by Coleridge in 1811-12 has been the basis of all modern editions. This edition is based on hitherto unpublished transcripts of the lectures made by Collier when, as a young man, he attended Coleridge’s lectures. R A Foakes’ introduction and appendices demonstrate the extent to which Collier revised and altered Coleridge’s words for the edition he published forty-five years later. This volume therefore provides a much more authoritative text of Coleridge’s most important Shakespeare lectures.
