Richard Holmes:
Coleridge continuously haunts De Quincey's pages, as a sort of battered Virgilian guide to the opium Inferno.

What a sentence.

My late friend Rob Zseleczky admired Holmes for his Shelley biography.

His Coleridge volumes are quite good, though reading about Coleridge can be exasperating, between his messy personal life and his unfulfilled projects. Sometimes it seems a wonder that he finished anything at all.
