Here's the poem: I heard a thousand blended notes,
While in a grove I sate reclined,
In that sweet mood when pleasant thoughts
Bring sad thoughts to the mind.
To her fair works did Nature link
The human soul that through me ran;
And much it grieved my heart to think
What man has made of man.
Through primrose tufts, in that green bower,
The periwinkle trailed its wreaths;
And ’tis my faith that every flower
Enjoys the air it breathes.
The birds around me hopped and played,
Their thoughts I cannot measure:—
But the least motion which they made
It seemed a thrill of pleasure.
The budding twigs spread out their fan,
To catch the breezy air;
And I must think, do all I can,
That there was pleasure there.
If this belief from heaven be sent,
If such be Nature’s holy plan,
Have I not reason to lament
What man has made of man?
What is the primary effect Coleridge achieves in "Kubla Khan"?
a) a memorable melody
b) a fragmented dream
c) a realistic portrayal
d) a tormented love story
2.a fragmented dream
1st is rigid, because it rhymes and has equal meter throughout
2nd is D, a tormented love story, because there's a word used that's close to "tormented" when describing the demon lover - they're a demon, so obviously it's a tormented and pretty messed up love story
