Coleridge and the Uses of Division

Seamus Perry

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the concept of division and unity in the works of English Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It contends that Coleridge's thought is best understood not as the solution to a problem but as the experience and exploration of a ‘muddle’. It suggests that Coleridge's brand of double-mindedness is of quite a different order to most because he is principally divided between the rival attractions of unity and division themselves.

Keywords:   Samuel Taylor Coleridge, English poet, division, unity, double-mindedness
