Kubla Khan of Coleridge
Kubla Khan is the most important example of the particular Coleridge's conception that is based on the imagination that transcends the data of experience and creates in the true sense of the word.
The poem describes the evolution of a morbid vision and it is divided in two parts.
The first part describes the wonderful place that K.K commanded to be built. The plasure-dome was surrounded by ten miles of fertile ground full of gardens bright with sinuous rills.
Abruptly the vision changes, in fact, for example, the river has now come to the surface, forcing its way through a deep fissure on the slope of the hill and throwing great rocks into the air.
In the second part of the poem we can find an Abyssinian girl that is playing a stringed musical instrument a dulcimer and she is singing of an unknown mountain Abora, faintly recalling the image of paradise.
This girl is obviously opposed to that of the other woman in the poem: the woman wailing for her demon-lover.
The abyssinian represents a pure and virgin ure while the second woman represents the passion.
Very important and particular in this poem is the musically of its verses and the irregular lines that it is composed.
In the poem emerges the conception
The solitary reaper of Wordsworth
The poem was probably written in 1803, during a tour of Scotland that Wordsworth made with his sister Doroty. The poem is centred on the ure of the reaper that she reaps and cuts and binds the grain while she sings a melancholy song.
The girl's song and her voice are ed to a nightingale and to a cuckoo-bird and breaking the silence of the seas among the farther Hebrides.
The reaper sings probably in Gaelic, a language that the auctor doesn't know
but induces W. to think many far events and beautiful place.
