Volume 2 of Jacksons collection brings together critical responses to Coleridges work from the time of his death, in 1834, to the present day. It includes essays which have come to be seen as crucial to the development of Coleridges reputation - for example, by J.S. Mill and Swinburne - as well as a selection of reviews published before 1834 which has been discovered since the publication of the first volume. By 1900, Coleridges standing, not only as a poet and critic, but as a politician and even as a commentator on scientific questions, was established. In the 20th century, his work continues to attract academic attention, with new editions of his writing still appearing. Jacksons introductory essay provides a context for understanding the history of these critical responses.
