Coleridge's Kubla Khan and the Process of Creativity - Coleridge's Kubla Khan and the Process of Creativity Coleridge's " Kubla Khan" is an extremely enchanting poem which is based around the 'stately pleasure dome' of the emperor, Kubla Khan. Although the poem is set around this pleasure dome, it can be noticed that the poem had profound depth to it. If one is able to understand the hidden symbols and meanings within the poem, it becomes clear that Coleridge's " Kubloa Khan" does not simply describe a pleasure dome, it is also a prolonged metaphore for the process of creativity....   [tags: Coleridge Kubla Khan Essays] 1920 words

Careful Manipulation in Coleridge's Kubla Khan - Careful Manipulation in Coleridge's Kubla Khan           In his preface to "Kubla Khan," Samuel Taylor Coleridge makes the claim that his poem is a virtual recording of something given to him in a drug-induced reverie, "if that indeed can be called composition in which all the images rose up before him as things . . . without any sensation or consciousness of effort." As spontaneous and as much a product of the unconscious or dreaming world as the poem might seem on first reading, however, it is also a finely structured, well wrought device that suggests the careful manipulation by the conscious mind....   [tags: Coleridge Kubla Khan Essays] 1328 words

The rhyming patterns are quite complicated; the first stanza, for instance, rhymes in the pattern abaab ccdede. Coleridge's patterns of alliteration are also involved: He will sometimes use the sound at the beginning of one syllable as the sound at the beginning of the next syllable, as in "Xanadu did" in line one, "miles meandering" in line 25, and "deep delight" in line 44.

Samuel Coleridge's Kubla Khan and the Unconscious - Samuel Coleridge's Kubla Khan and the Unconscious Samuel Coleridge’s poem Kubla Khan is a metaphorical journey through a complex labyrinth of symbols and images that represent the unconscious and seemingly troubled mind. It is a voyage that continually spirals downward toward uncharted depths, while illustrating the unpredictable battle between the conscious and the unconscious that exists inside every individual.

One of the most widely accepted opinions of the poem defines it as a comparison between two forms of paradise; a comparison that is achieved through the incredibly vivid language and the surrealistic ambiance that is created via the tone and form....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Kubla Khan - In the opening lines of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s paradoxical poem “Kubla Khan,” we see an approach to literacy that is far different than his predecessors. This is partly due to his role as one of the founders of the Romantic Era. Coleridge, along with William Wordsworth, published an anthology of poems entitled “Lyrical Ballads.” This collection was the beginning of an overwhelming movement to praise the power of imagination rather than that of reason. While “Kubla Khan” was not a part of this work, it is still a clear depiction of all of the ideals of Romanticism such as the importance of imagination, nature, emotion and individualism....   [tags: Poetry Analysis ]

“Kubla Khan:” A Description of Earthly Paradise - “Kubla Khan” by Samuel Taylor Coleridge is said to be “one of the best remembered works of the Romantic period,” (Gray) and though this poem may seem speak deeply about the world, its conception was fairly simple: Coleridge had been reading a book about Kubla Khan in Xanadu (by a man named Samuel Purchas) before falling into a deep sleep induced by an opium mixture to which he had long since had an addiction. When he awoke from this drug induced stupor, he had apparently 200 to 300 lines of poetry in his head, but after writing the first three stanzas, was interrupted (and thus, we observe a shift in the poem at that point) by “a person from Porlock” (Brett 46-8) and could only remembe...   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Examine nature accurately, but write from recollection, and trust more to the imagination than the memory.” Coleridge followed his own advice in the crafting of Kubla Khan; which presents his interpretation of the Kubla Khan court when under the influence of opiates. Due to the complexity of the poem, many have found that the poem lacks a true theme but instead focuses on “the nature and dialectical process of poetic creation.” Coleridge created a masterpiece by providing the readers room for personal interpretation but also a poem so well crafted that it illustrates the Romant...   [tags: Literature]
