Coleridge's Notebooks: A Selection
… a marvellously judged and varied selection … The temptation is to quote from it, but that would be like dipping a tumbler into a flood, a glassful that gives no suggestion of the torrent.P.J. Kavanagh, The Spectator (14 September 2002).
Selections have appeared before ... but Perry's annotated choice sets a new standard. Included is every kind of musing ... Beautifully designed, too.The Times (16 September 2002).
The book I was most delighted to see was Seamus Perry's selection from Coleridge's Notebooks. These impassioned little jottings and snippets reveal the philosopher in the poet more clearly than any of his more ponderous works, and they are lovely to dip into. Ann Wroe, 'Books of the Year', The Telegraph (23 November 2002).
Seamus Perry's brilliantly edited selection … must now be an indispensable item on any Coleridge bibliography. It is a mystery that it has taken until now for such a project to be realised: a student-friendly and fully annotated selection from the Notebooks … No one interested in human thought and feeling should be without it. Stephen Romer, The Guardian (18 January 2003).
... a well-judged and helpfully annotated selection from Coleridge's Notebooks that is eminently possessible ...Barbara Everett, London Review of Books (7 August 2003).
