Poetical Works I: Poems

J. C. C. Mays, Editor, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Author Princeton University Press $248 (1403p) ISBN 978-0-691-00483-9
After recent acclaim for its edition of Coleridge's Marginalia, Princeton returns with a monumental two ""part"" (i.e., two separate books with one ISBN) reading text of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poetry: Poetical Works I: Poems (Reading Text), volume 16 of the press's complete Coleridge edition. Edited by J.C.C. Mays, professor of modern English and American literature at Dublin's University College, the text will be definitive for the foreseeable future, and includes headnotes and footnotes contextualizing each poem as a whole, single lines, phrases and words. While a must for scholarly libraries, most poets and lay readers will have to save their pennies. (Nov. 4)
