In his introduction to this edition of Coleridge's Marginalia, the late George Whalley wrote, "There is no body of marginalia--in English, or perhaps in any other language--comparable with Coleridge's in range and variety and in the sensitiveness, scope, and depth of his reaction to what he was reading.'' The Princeton edition of the Marginalia, of which this is the third volume, will bring together over 8,000 notes, many never before printed, varying from a single word to substantial essays. In alphabetical order of authors, the notes are presented literatim from the original manuscripts whenever the annotated volumes can be found. Each note is preceded by the passage of the original text that appears to have provoked Coleridge's comment. Texts in foreign languages are followed by translations. The present volume comprises annotations on eighty-five books (from Irving to Oxlee), including Luther's table-talk, works by Robert Leighton upon which Coleridge's own Aids to Reflection was based, ten titles by Kant (one of them in three different sets), plays by Jonson and Massinger, and poetry by Milton. Besides English and American works, Coleridge annotated books in German, Latin, Greek, French, and Italian, the subjects of the volumes encompassing literature, religion, philosophy, linguistics, history, science, medicine, law, and politics.
