摘要
My study explores Coleridge's projection of an authorial persona in the context of a thematics of work, and examines in particular a figural vocabulary composed of hands, pens, paper, cobblers' tools and a wide range of similar images drawn from other trades. I read Coleridge's frequent references to such images as part of a broader autobiographical strategy to co-opt many of the occupational benefits of membership in trade associations, including elevated social status and freedom from outside evaluation.
In my first chapter, I provide an historical context for my argument by examining a range of Coleridge's texts in the context of Magali Sarfatti Larson's work on the rise of professionalism as well as other historical accounts of artisan and trade labor. My second chapter shows that Coleridge's Friend resolves method to the opposition of ab extra and ab intra influences, and in so doing encodes Coleridge's complaints about his working. Chapter three shows that the Biographia's invocations of threats posed by large numbers of critics, readers, and publications constitutes an autobiographical strategy in which the mathematical sublime becomes a means of protecting Coleridge from criticism by differentiating between the Biographia's author and its literary subject. Finally, chapter four explores the intersection of Coleridge's experiences as a working author, including the awarding of the Wedgwood annuity, with the revision history of This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison.
