Kubla Khan

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.

A new and original edition of Coleridge’s famous poem, with an introduction by Adrian Blamires, is brought to life with Peter Hay’s printing and Pip Hall’s hand-lettering – this ‘miracle of rare device’, these ‘sinuous rills’.

“For Coleridge, poetry was the ‘balance of reconciliation of oppositive or discordant qualities’. In Kubla Khan we hear a ‘mingled pleasure’: sun and ice, garden and wild, ‘demon lover’ , peace and war. The Khan himself is both enlightened ruler and despot. The river Alph runs from birth to death, ‘ceaseless tumult’ to ‘lifeless ocean’, alpha to omega.” ~ Adrian Blamires
