you are right, at that point it probably didnt make a differencephoenix827 said:I was told it was an "opium induced stupor". Not a dream. But I suppose at that stage what difference did it make to him?intenseimages said:when he wrote the poem "Kubla Kahn", the actual poem came to him in a dream. after he awakened he sat down and started writing the poem.Smokey said:Hmmmm, yeah Xanadu, the exotic pleasure palace in Coleridge's 1816 poem "Kubla Kahn"
sometime during the writing of the poem he was interrrupted by someone arriving at his house., after his visitors left, he sat down to continue writing and could not remember the rest of what he dreamed. this is the reason this poem is unfinished.
