Coleridge's 'Biographia' is part autobiography, part philosophical treatise, part critical exegesis on poetry and genius. It has long held scholars in its thrall and its merits have been equally praised, and also dismissed, as the production of excessive opium use by the author. This edition takes into consideration three decades of research and scholarship on Coleridge and includes all Coleridge's references and allusions, including those listed as missing or untraceable in past editions. In tracing all unattributed references in the British Library, Adam Roberts has in some cases opened up whole new avenues of interpretation for the text, materially altering the way we read this classic work.
- Add to BasketThe Buke Of The Howlat By Richard Holland
- Hardback - Scottish Text Society
'The Buke of the Howlat,' a comic allegory in which the main characters are birds, was composed in the mid-15th century by Richard Holland, chaplain to the household of Archibald Douglas, earl of Moray, and dedicated to his wife, Elizabeth Dunbar. In his presentation of the text, Ralph Hanna pays particular attention to the metrical form, foregrounding literary and linguistic patterns and approaches; he also provides a detailed account of the witnesses of the text, together with an analysis of the poem's key linguistic features and its literary debts to Alain of Lille. It offers a rich reading of Holland's poem, revealing its European foundations alongside its Scottish political import.
