9781848612297: From Culbone Wood - In Xanadu

In the voice of an eighteenth century poet who the previous afternoon had written 'Kubla Khan', this long prose meditation takes the reader through an English pastoral landscape to the Central Asian steppe, the palaces and gardens of the Khan who ruled north China in the 13th century, and then back to rural Somerset. While Coleridge is implied, the garrulous and solipsistic persona who talks through these journals, essays and fantasias is an a-historical figure who lives largely in, and for imagination.
