The Coleridge Connection: Essays for Thomas McFarland

Review Comment

The volume's real strength lies in its connecting thread. Given the range and diversity of its contributors, the volume is remarkably homogeneous. It makes an authoritative contribution to Coleridge studies and is a fitting tribute to Thomas McFarland who first put the idea of creative 'symbiosis' on the map. --Lucy Newlyn.
