This chapter presents a reading of Coleridge's 1817 ‘literary life’. The focus is on the text's difficult struggles with the idea of self-representation in writing. Autobiography is central to the philosophical and literary projects of the book, but it also disrupts them. These ambivalences are closely related to the anxieties surrounding self-writing — the circulation and reception of the ‘I’ in print — which have been explored in the preceding chapters.

Keywords:   Coleridge, literary life, idealism, autobiography, reception
