Excerpt from The Complete Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Vol. 1 of 7: With an Introductory Essay Upon His Philosophical and Theological Opinions
IN presenting the public with a complete edition of the works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, it seems proper to preface it with some remarks upon their general spirit and tendency. At first sight this may seem to be a super uous attempt, because from the very first appearance of this author before the world, down to the present moment, he has been the subject of analysis and criticism, both offensive and defensive, to an extent unparalleled in the 'case of any other literary man, within the same length of time. Yet a second look will enable any one to see, that not withstanding all this remark upon Coleridge, it is still difficult to form an estimate of his mind, and of his real worth as a Thinker. Critics themselves have been embarrassed by the re markable universality of his gemue, and the wonderful variety of his productions, and have generally confined themselves to one side of his mind, and one class of his works. The result is that one of the man has been extolled to the depreciation of nu other. Those, and they are the great majority, who have been impressed by the rich and exhaustless Imagination of Coleridge, and by his contributions to the lighter and more beautiful forms of Literature, have lamented that so much of the power and vigor of his intellect, should have been enlisted in Philosophy; while the lesser number who have been stimulated and strength ened by his profound speculations, as they have been by no con temporaneous English writer, have regretted that the poetic na ture prevented that singleness of aim and unity of pursuit, which might have left as the record of his life, a philosophic system, to be placed beside those of Plato and Kant. With the exception of the clear and masterly Essay, prefixed to his edition of the Aids to Re ection, by the late Dr. Marsh. Whose presume decease, in the full vigor of his powers, and the full maturity of10 introductory essay.
