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]

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.

“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]

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]

An Analysis Of ' Frost At Midnight ' By Samuel Taylor Coleridge

- Since Samuel Taylor Coleridge is considered one of the founding fathers of the Romanticism movement, his poems reflect the many aspects of Romanticism. “Frost at Midnight” is an excellent example of mysticism.

In the poem, the narrator does not have just one encounter with nature that leads him to a revelation. He notices the nature in his current surroundings, which probes him to reflect on his childhood and how the lack of nature affected him....   [tags: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Romanticism]

The Romantic Poets By William Wordsworth And Samuel Taylor Coleridge

- The Romantic poets’ philosophy included the idea that children maintained a complete appreciation and awe-filled wonder and connection with nature that involved both “seeing” and “feeling” the beauty surrounding them. When a child comes into the world and before beginning its journey in life, it possesses an innocence, and one could even say, ignorance, about the world that enables it to only see the glory and splendor of nature around it. As exemplified by William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, many of the Romantics believed that one loses complete appreciation, whether in "seeing" or "feeling" the magnificence of nature, as he or she matures into an adult; however, only one of the...   [tags: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Romanticism]

During my research, I learned that it was not love for an individual, but the love of nature, freedom, and imagination. “The quintessence of Romanticism is perhaps best revealed by setting forth its concepts of the Imagination-what it is, what it is not, how it functions, and why it is of greatest importance in human life” (Bernbaum 323).

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge The French and American Revolutions had an enormous impact on the early Romantic thinkers like Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth.
