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"]
