Biographia Literaria, Or, Biographical Sketches of My Literary Life and Opinions
Princeton University Press, 1984 - Literary Criticism - 409 pages
Biographia Literaria has emerged over the last century as a supreme work of literary criticism and one of the classics of English literature. Into this volume poured 20 years of speculation about the criticism and uses of poetry and about the psychology of art. Following the text of the 1817 edition, the editors offer the first completely annotated edition of the highly allusive work.
