The importance of Coleridge's theory of imagination for post-Romantic literary thought is as all-pervading as it is hard to determine and localize. This is a study of the genesis of Coleridge's ideas in the historical and ideological context in which they intervened. From the scientific and political importance of imagination in the period of Coleridge's collaboration with Wordsworth, through the labyrinths of post-Kantian aesthetics, to the scholary concern with the classical "Misterycults" and their concealed connection with Coleridge's later cultural politics, this book offers a new and challenging interpretation of the relations between criticism and society in the Romantic period.
