“The power of
giving the interest
of novelty by
modifying with the
colors of
imagination “
Coleridge divided the mind into two faculties
Mind
Imagination Fancy
Primary
Imagination
Living
power
Prime agent
of all human
perception
Repetition
in the finite
mind
Eternal act
of creation
in the
infinite IAM
The significance of the Imagination for Coleridge was that it
represented the sole faculty within man that was able to
achieve the romantic ambition of reuniting the subject and the
object; the world of the self and the world of nature. By
establishing the creative act as mimicking the "organic
principle" or "one"—a divine principle believed to underlie all
reality—the romantic theorist sought to establish a
harmonious relationship between the ideal world of the
subject and the real world of the object. Coleridge was
convinced that the Imagination acted as "a repetition in the
finite mind of the eternal act of creation in the infinite I AM,"
and that it not only reinforced the notion that perception was
active and creative, it established the cosmos as an organic
entity.
Imagination" as "ESEMPLASTIC," :
Coleridge explained this property of the "Imagination" as
"ESEMPLASTIC," to "shape into one" and to "convey a new
sense." Coleridge in the tenth chapter of Biographia
Literaria described this ability of the imagination as
"Esemplastic." Noting that esemplastic was a word he
borrowed from the Greek "to shape," Coleridge explained
that it referred to the imagination's ability to "shape into one,
having to convey a new sense." He felt such a term was
necessary as "it would aid the recollection of meaning and
prevent it being confounded with the usual import of the
word imagination."
