Heading: Coleridge and the Germans. A Dialogue
Category: Philosophy   
Topic: ["Platonic" dialogue on the exaggerated regard for the German philosophers, for example, Novalis, shown by Carlyle, at the expense of the English poet, Coleridge. The diminution of Coleridge is by making him seem to subscribe to the same philosophy yet to be somehow less advanced. The differences in the philosophy and works of Coleridge and "the Germans" are stressed here]

Heading: The Westminster Review.--Writings of Coleridge
Category: Philosophy   Political Economy   Literature   Periodicals   
Topic: [The Athenaeum writer objects to an article in the "Westminster Review". The latter article claims (and the Athenaeum article quotes with derision) that "Mr.Coleridge is a Benthamite in his poetry; a Utilitarian; a `greatest happiness` man", while "in his prose; there he is not his own man...". The Athenaeum finds such a neat division between works of prose and poetry implausible and asks, "Can such a critic have any idea of a human being as a complex, but homogeneous whole?" It goes on to defend the worth of Coleridge`s prose writings, though it implies they may be too demanding for the "honest but conceited man, who writes in the Westminster Review"]
