Kubla Khan at 200 -

Written in 1797, Coleridge’s mysterious fragment did not see the light of day for nearly 20 years. 2016, the bicentenary of its first publication, offers the perfect opportunity for a fresh look at ‘Kubla Khan’ and its enduring significance and value. Three leading scholars of Romantic literature will offer different takes on the meanings of Coleridge’s poem and why it still holds such power over its readers: Nick Groom (University of Exeter), Tim Fulford (Nottingham Trent University) and Jane Moore (Cardiff University). Chaired by Robin Jarvis, University of the West of England. The venue is the Watershed, Bristol on saturday 21 May. For more information, and to book your place visit Kubla Khan lecture day
