Biographical history

Anthony John Harding graduated from the University of Manchester (1969) and earned a PhD from Cambridge University (1973). After working briefly in the publishing industry, he joined the University of Saskatchewan's department of English. He authored or edited several books, including "Coleridge and the Idea of Love" (1974); "Coleridge and the Inspired Word" (ca. 1985); "Milton, the Metaphysicals and Romanticism" (co-editor with Lisa Low); "The Reception of Myth in English Romanticism" (1995); as well as numerous articles. His international reputation as a Coleridge scholar resulted in his being asked to serve as co-editor for "The Notebooks of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Volume 5," with Kathleen Coburn. Following her death, Princeton University Press asked him to continue as sole editor. Upon his retirement from the University in 2005, Harding was awarded professor emeritus status.
