Abstract: The dominant purpose of this volume is to address the conflicts, and explain problematic relationships, between text and meaning; the particular difficulties in understanding the Biographia are set forth, chapter by chapter, in terms of differing strategies and methods. The chapters survey several major concerns: the writing, editing, and reading of the text; the critical topoi and privileged discourse of Coleridge's language; the ideological pretensions which shape and direct his meaning.
