S.T. Coleridge: Interviews and Recollections
Click here for the publisher's description.
A number of later Coleridgean records could not be fitted into the book, some of which I list here. (Readers should consult John Beer's review in The Wordsworth Cirlce 32 (2001), 179-80, and look out Professor Beer's 'Transatlantic and Scottish Connections: Uncollected Records', in The Coleridge Connection: Essays for Thomas McFarland, ed. Richard Gravil and Molly Lefebure (Basingstoke: Macmillan, 1990), 308-43.) I hope to make some of these further records available on-line in due course.
- The first chapter of [Willmott, Robert Eldridge Aris], Conversations at Cambridge (1836), contains a long account of Coleridge at the meeting of the British Association in Cambridge in 1833. There is a selection in Coleridge the Talker: A Series of Contemporary Descriptions and Comments, ed. Richard W. Armour and Raymond F. Howes (Ithaca, NY: Cornell University Press, 1940), 362-4; and it is reproduced in full in Table Talk Recorded by Henry Nelson Coleridge (and John Taylor Coleridge) (Collected Works, vol. 14), ed. Carl Woodring (2 vols.; Princeton, NJ, 1990), ii.449-68.
- Anton Langerhans's account of Coleridge talking in 1830, translated in Table Talk, ed. Woodring, ii.437-445.
- John Wheeler's account of meeting Coleridge in 1829, reprinted in part (from vermont Alumni Weekly xv (29 January 1936), 155) in in Armour and Howes; and printed in a fuller version in Table Talk, ed. Woodring, ii.429-33
Some misprints (as reported -- by me -- in The Year's Work in English Studies 81 (Oxford, 2002), 645):
- p. xv. FOR 'testfied' READ 'testified'
- p. 216. FOR 'ROBERT BENJAMIN' READ 'BENJAMIN ROBERT'
- p. 222. FOR 'chandalier' READ 'chandelier'
- p. 231. FOR 'sporano' READ 'soprano'
Advice to those intending to prepare camera-ready copy: DON'T.
