At Coleridge's personal insistence, it used to be released anonymously in 1821, illustrated with 27 line engravings copied via Henry Moses after the unique plates via Moritz Retzsch. His writer, Thomas Boosey, introduced out one other version in 1824. even though numerous critics famous that it was once Coleridge's paintings, his position as translator used to be obscured as a result of its nameless ebook.

This version of Coleridge's translation presents the textual and documentary facts of his authorship, and provides his paintings within the context of different modern efforts at translating Goethe's Faust.
