  The Collected Works of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Volume 14:
Table Talk. (Two volume set)
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Edited by Kathleen Coburn and B. Winer

Honorable Mention for the 2001 Award for Best Professional/Scholarly Book in Multivolume Reference: Humanities, Association of American Publishers

Hardcover Two volume set | 1990 | This edition is out of print | ISBN: 9780691098814

Coleridge's nephew, son-in-law, and first editor, Henry Nelson Coleridge, began at the end of 1822 a record of Coleridge's remarks as a way of preparing an anthology of the interests and thought of the great poet and critic. His manuscripts, gathered to form the major text of this new edition, include passages on relatives, friends, and various censorable topics omitted from the Table Talk of 1835 and unpublished until now. These two volumes also contain talk recorded by other listeners from 1798 until Coleridge's death in 1834. Some of these records have not been previously published; some are published from manuscripts that differ from versions previously known. Also included are previously unpublished remarks by Wordsworth. Along with a bibliography of earlier editions of Table Talk and other useful appendixes, the second volume of Carl Woodring's edition reprints the second edition (1836), which differs from the manuscripts more extensively than the edition of 1835.

This is the first fully annotated edition of a work that long remained more popular in the United Kingdom than any of the works in prose published by Coleridge himself. The two volumes make a convenient encyclopedia of his ideas and interests.
