  • 3. Romanticism (1770s- 1870) (1998-1832)Romanticism has very little to do with things popularly thought ofas "romantic," although love may occasionally be the subject ofRomantic art. Rather, it is an international artistic andphilosophical movement that redefined the fundamental ways inwhich people in Western cultures thought about themselves andabout their world.The early Romantic period thus coincides with what is often calledthe "age of revolutions"--including, of course, the American (1776)and the French (1789) revolutions--an age of upheavals inpolitical, economic, and social traditions, the age which witnessedthe initial transformations of the Industrial Revolution.

  • 9. Coleridge Kubla khan First stanza In Xanadu did Kubla Khan A stately pleasure-dome decree : Where Alph, the sacred river, ran Through caverns measureless to man Down to a sunless sea.So twice five miles of fertile ground With walls and towers were girdled round: And here were gardens bright with sinuous rills, Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree; And here were forests ancient as the hills, Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 9 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 10. Coleridge Second stanza Kubla khanBut oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover! A savage place! as holy and enchanted As eer beneath a waning moon was haunted By woman wailing for her demon-lover!,And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing, A mighty fountain momently was forced: Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail, Or chaffy grain beneath the threshers flail: And mid these dancing rocks at once and ever It flung up momently the sacred river. Five miles meandering with a mazy motion Through wood and dale the sacred river ran, Then reached the caverns measureless to man, And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean: Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 10 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 11. Coleridge Kubla khanAnd mid this tumult Kubla heard from far Ancestral voices prophesying war! Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 11 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 12. Coleridge Kubla khanThe shadow of the dome of pleasure Floated midway on the waves; Where was heard the mingled measure From the fountain and the caves. It was a miracle of rare device, A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice! Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 12 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 13. Coleridge Kubla khanA damsel with a dulcimer In a vision once I saw: It was an Abyssinian maid, And on her dulcimer she played, Singing of Mount Abora. Could I revive within me Her symphony and song, To such a deep delight twould win me, That with music loud and long, I would build that dome in air, That sunny dome! those caves of ice! Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 13 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 14. Coleridge Kubla khan,And all who heard should see them there And all should cry, Beware! Beware! His flashing eyes, his floating hair! Weave a circle round him thrice, And close your eyes with holy dread, For he on honey-dew hath fed, And drunk the milk of Paradise. Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 14 eaglenoora@yahoo.com
  • 15. Coleridge Kubla khan• The poem evokes romanticized Oriental landscapes (13th C China)• the setting contains contrasted images of wild nature and man-made dome.• It is a verse representation of Coleridges theories of the imagination•“Kubla Khan” as a poem that relates the account of its own creation, thusstressing its tendency to foreground itself as a work of Romantic art. Dr. Noora Al-Malki 2012 15 eaglenoora@yahoo.com

  • 17. She walks in beauty, like the nightOf cloudless climes and starry skies;And all thats best of dark and brightMeet in her aspect and her eyes: Lord ByronThus mellowd to that tender lightWhich heaven to gaudy day denies. She Walks in Beauty Hebrew MelodiesOne shade the more, one ray the less,Had half impaired the nameless graceWhich waves in every raven tress,Or softly lightens oer her face; "mad, bad, and dangerous to know.“Where thoughts serenely sweet expressHow pure, how dear their dwelling-place. •a lady in mourning wearing a black dress •Meeting of oppositesAnd on that cheek, and oer that brow, •Not an expression of loveSo soft, so calm, yet eloquent,The smiles that win, the tints that glow,But tell of days in goodness spent,A mind at peace with all below,A heart whose love is innocent!
